Stitch a bouquet of floral projects! These gardens of embroidered flowers use cross stitch, silk, and canvaswork, and capture that classic Victorian style. Create a golden silk pillow that has a ruffled edge and small pink flowers and green leaves in the center. Stitch a flower onto the tiniest scrap of canvas, and turn it into a pincushion. Brighten the room with sunflowers, rest your head on a fragrant herb pillow, or slip your feet into some ornate slippers. Decorate your room with a picture done in crewel. Poems, folklore, and other charming tidbits of information enhance your Victorian experience. A Main Selection of BOMC's Crafters Choice Book Club.
