Handbook of Embroidery-Project Gutenberg

Hello ladies,



Did you like the above pattern?
If yes,you can view quite a few like the one above at Project Gutenberg - Handbook of Embroidery by L.Higgin .
But don't be misled by the title-this one is not a comprehensive book on embroidery,but is intended to provide some basic information.It describes few commonly used embroidery stitches and how to execute them. There are short descriptions on the materials and fabrics used for embroidery and also the various stages such as stretching ,framing etc.The most interesting part is obviously the designs in the appendix .Here's another pic from the same book :


So what are you waiting for?? Click here to view the whole book.Scroll down to the appendix to see the designs.Enjoy!!!

Love, luck and sunshine

Deepa
