Stitched Blooms is a beautiful new embroidery book by Embroiderer Carina Envoldsen_ Harris. It’s 300 designs and motifs feature lovely floral designs, some with a folk art feel I love.
I received a copy of the book myself from Lark Books last week and it’s one of those pretty books that gets you really excited about making the projects in the book. I am looking forward to trying some of the projects, especially since finding several vintage embroidery hoops at an estate sale last week. There are over 20 projects in the book and there are even more designs, over 300, on the accompanying CD. The directions are clear, even for a beginner like myself. There are a variety of designs geared for all levels of hand embroiderers.
I think I may try to make a Mexican style top with embroidery on the yoke.
I also love that horse,calendar and tote bag!
