Taking the four seasons as the main theme, this book introduces readers to the embroidered countryside through a number of "how-to-do-it" projects. The book includes sections on both hand and machine embroidery ranging from the traditional to more contemporary designs. It is designed to encourage embroiderers to use their own designs as a starting point for the projects, with the less-experienced guided throughout. Explains every stage of the embroidery process, including selecting and simplifying a design, making a paper pattern and choosing fabrics, with all aspects of the countryside featured including flowers, animals, fields, woods and seasons.
