Ribbon Embroidery and Stumpwork by Di van Niekerk? I love the embroidery designs and stitches, particularly as they involve ribbons... The photographs are beautiful, the instructions are clear, and the project, illustrated on the cover of the book, is to die for!
Stumpwork is another reason why I purchased this book. I would love to incorporate it in my embroidery projects. It is great how we can cover beads with ribbons to form flowers, stuff embroidered motifs so they can have added dimension to them, and padded shapes.
After thumbing through the book, my mind is full of ideas. I am
beginning to realize that what I need is not only more hours in a day
but another set of hands!!! Another improvement I need: a bigger studio. It won't happen any time soon, but I will have to take a long and hard look at how I store supplies and change it...
Anyway, if you are into embroidery, this book is a great find!
