|My new favorite embroidery book.|
While searching for ideas for this particular block, I did make a wonderful discovery that I decided to share with you all (in hopes it would satisfy my desire to share something about my current work.) Last week, I went to the library and checked out Embroidery for all Seasons by Diana Lampe. Since then, I let my husband know I added the book to my Amazon wish list for Christmas this year. (Poor guy. He did not even know I have had a wish list on Amazon for the past few years! Of course, I have always used that as more of a reference for myself, to remind me of items that sparked my interest... Silly me!)
This book is like a little treasure. Bonus, it even has left-handed and right-handed directions for making the stitches used within the book. (I'm not left-handed, but I thought of my friends that are when I saw the directions.)
It would be safe to assume that I have been using a LOT of ideas from this particular book on Mardeen's Round Robin block. I was happily surprised that I caught on to most of the stitches right away, though a few were a bit tricky for me.
Now, I need to get back to work. I really want to post pictures soon!
Have a great weekend,
