The Milner Craft Series of books from Jane Milner and published in Australia are very fine, good stitching books.

The book begins with the Essentials you will need. Then the projects:
The following chapters are:
and an out-of-date list of suppliers.
The instructions seem quite complete, the stitches, the templates, all is here and well done. There are full color pictures of all the flowers, a few of the pictures show them finished & framed.
You will NOT find these gorgeous flowers in any of the flower stitching books you see all over the place. These are unique, I assume they are Australian Flowers and absolutely gorgeous.
These flowers, included in a floral stitching project, be it Needlepoint or Embroidery or a stand alone project of an flower. Any of these would be a show-stopper.
I took a chance ordering this book, sight unseen, to re-sell. I am glad I did. I am never disappointed by any of the Sally Milner Publications books.
This is a brand new hardcover book, first published in Australia in 1999 it does not say how many re-prints there have been however this is clearly a new book. Imported to the USA by Sterling Publishing. It has 80 pages
