Recreate the glorious shapes and textures of the past--flora and fauna--in magnificent crewel embroidery. Flowers with a Jacobean twist (such as Tudor roses); luscious fruit, like ripe strawberries and pomegranates; rabbits, lions, unicorns, and other creatures in historical guises; even the Tree of Life and the Garden of Eden: stitch all these breathtaking images on natural linen, using fine two-ply yarn. Colors range from classical to contemporary, and each section features a stunning project--from a waistcoat to a fire screen.
