I have had this book on my shelves for a while now, never realizing it was no listed for sale yet. Oh dear.
Trish Burr is a very well known needlework author, many of her books are available here for sale such as Miniature Needle Painting Embroidery, Needle Painting Embroidery, Color Confidence, Redoute's Finest Flowers in Embroidery, Long & Short Stitch Embroidery and the latest White Work With Color.
The subtitle of Crewel & Surface Embroidery is Inspirational Floral Designs.
Trish Burr's books are part of the excellent Sally Milner Craft Series of Books. They are published in Australia where, like England. needlepoint is often called embroidery or canvas embroidery. Every project here is suitable for fabric embroidery of canvas needlepoint.
All the projects are shown Stitched in full color, with 2 templates showing different details, as a full color drawing to use for color placement and complete directions.
This detail and instruction is one of the reasons I like Salle Milner Publishing so much. The book begins with materials and equipment, then techniques, tips for working the designs and a stitch glossary.
There is, as well, a good lesson in thread shading.
There are 17 projects. They are divided by Beginner Level, Intermediate Level & Advanced Level.
First published in 2008 with a 2009 re-print. This is a new glossy cover paperbound book with 144 pages.
