by Doreen Holmes

The author takes countryside themes and scenes and turns them into a delightful selection of motifs, suitable for working in a variety of needlepoint techniques.

After a fully illustrated reference guide to the stitches and techniques that are used, the author presents about thirty patterns, including individual flowers, a fan, wedding headdress and several projects based on actual country scenes - including a farmhouse, thatched cottage, Scottish landscape, a widmill, and more

Clear working diagrams, written instructions and photographs - almost all colour - of the finished pieces.

In excellent condition but with usual minor abrasions to jacket. Previous owner's name on front endpaper.
