Embroidered Pansies by Diana Lampe
Diane Lampe is renowned for her skill in matching the colours of nature with the embroiderer's palette of cotton, silk or woollen threads. In this book Diane has excelled and gives all the details to allow the reader to reproduce more than 100 pansies and heartsease, all true to nature in both form and colour. The required stitches are kept to a minimum and even the inexperienced embroiderer can follow the instructions and, with a little practice, reproduce the pansies. Diana has also provided a range of embroidered projects that can be created to display the pansies, from brooches, to cushions, to 'carpets' of flowers. An illustrated stitch glossary and an extensive thread conversion chart complete the book.
