Just from the front cover you can see how good this book is for anyone who wants to create embroidered flowers or birds. I have long admired Trish Burr and her books. Subtitled 'Fresh Ideas for Beginners', this book encompasses work that would satisfy embroiderers of any level. There is a detailed introduction to long and short stitch with step by step instructions enhanced with appropriate photos. Trish really does use her needle like a paintbrush. The projects are wonderful and there are ideas on how to use your finished embroidery. This a lovely book for any embroiderer.-KarenPlatt.co.uk

I definitely recommend this to be the first book purchased by a beginner. I like the simple practice lesson which teaches you one new aspect at a time. Each project is even broken down into steps. The instructional diagrams and photos are designed so that you know exactly how to proceed. Oh, did I forget to mention that the only thing I've ever done with a needle was sew on a button or hem?
I have done needle painting before , on my own , with some nice results . A few years ago , I followed a course in embroidery and needle painting was also one of the parts of it . It only refreshed my hunger to take on more difficult work . This book will help me get it right , those bits that seemed too difficult before . It shows how to take any design you like , a picture of a bird or flower , look at the colors , shadows and light and get to work . The examples are generously worked out , with the numbers of the colors and everything you need . Either start on those or go on to your own choice of bird and flower and apply what you learned here . You will not regret using this book .
