Redoute's Finest Flowers in Embroidery
by Trish Burr
Yep...this is a treasure for sure! Gorgeous stitching, and wonderful instructions!
Here's what one reviewer has to say about this great book:
“Trish Burr has painstakingly recreated blooms from the paintings of
19th century botanical artist Pierre Joseph Redoute in exquisite
embroidery. Using only the simplest stitches, she provides instructions,
illustrations and photo- graphs to take you step-by-step through
stitching 17 beautiful buds—roses, lilies, birds of paradise, dahlias,
magnolias and more. A gorgeous gift for anyone with a passion for
flowers or needlework.”—Vogue Patterns.
