When looking for books to purchase for this party, I could not decide on just one Royal School of Needlework Books to get...so got both the Crewelwork book for Day Two...and Silk Shading for Day Four!
And, both are marvelous books! The Silk Shading is also a spiral bound book...and I have really had a hard time with giving it up for the contest since reviewing it since it's arrival!
"Suitable for beginners as well as professionals, this handbook provides
an in-depth look at the art of “needle painting” and offers techniques
using long and short stitches and blending and merging colors to create
beautifully shaded embroideries.
