About this title


Embroidery artist Helen M. Stevens lives and works in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, which inspires her embroideries of wild animals, birds and flowers. This book reproduces in colour a collection of 75 examples of her work. The pictures reflect the changing countryside through the seasons - from morning dew on spring flowers to a squirrel amongst fallen leaves on the autumnal woodland floor. Gold and silver threads catch the glinting of sunlight on water and there are dragonflies and highly-coloured butterflies among the grasses and flowers. Portraits of birds of prey in flight are also featured. For emboiderers, there is detailed discussion of the techniques used, with a gradual progression from simple to more advanced forms, and information is included on the composition and design of wildlife embroideries.
