If you’re looking for Quiltmaker’s 100 Block Blog Hop, you can find it here. In the meantime, here’s today’s fresh new post.
The good folks at Landauer Publishing sent me the book Embroidery & Patchwork Revisited by Janice Vaine.
The book has great tips to get you started including some projects that you are sure to love like this tote. Isn’t it cute??
There are stitches and stitches and stitches that are illustrated and easy to follow and practical uses for the stitches are shown.
If I had time or needed a portable project, I’d be so excited to find this book!! The illustrations are wonderful and I really like all of the projects.
They also sent a sweet little book that only contains an illustrated guide for the stitches. It’s called Hand Embroidery Stitches at-a-Glance-also by Janice Vaine.
I have done and have very much enjoyed embroidery…Kelli does too. The first bed sized quilt I ever made for Kelli had crazy quilt stitching on it. Trust me..the stitches weren’t as detailed as the ones illustrated but they weren’t half bad considering I was only 23 at the time and had little experience.
This book is one both Kelli and I like but we both know it will just sit on our shelf and not get used so we’re passing the big book on to you of you readers. Are you interested?? If so, just leave a comment here and tell us if you have even done a crazy quilt project before or if you have embroidered.
Oh and if you like giveaways, scroll back to yesterday’s post…we have one there too.
