Subtitled: 125 Beautiful Darning Stitches & Hints.
Sharon G is, as we all know, the designer of extraordinary needlepoint canvases. as well as the author of SENSE: Simply Essential Needlepoint Stitch Explanations.
This book is about darning stitches for needlepoint. They are the increasingly popular "open" stitches for backgrounds or highlighting or really, anywhere.
To quote (and paraphrase) Sharon from her introduction "Some canvases need coverage for many reasons. Others cry out for delicate open stitches to compliment and embellish the artist's painting..........Not every canvas needs heavy threads, ribbons, and embellishments. Some cry oput fort a single strand of thread, a simple elegant pattern and a relaxing stitch..........Make a stitch of your own. Experiment and have some fun."
The chapters are:
Open Lacy Patterns
Darning with a Bead
In looking through this book I see that the stitch graphs, done in black, white and gray tone, are large, clear and easy to read. One graph to a page. There is a comment, suggestion, or recommendation with each stitch.
This is a soft cover, metal spiral bound book with 147 pages. Self-published by Sharon G in 2015.
