I was fortunate to pick up a copy of Embroidery Companion – Classic Designs for Modern Living by Alicia Paulson at the library yesterday. I have spent some time this afternoon admiring all the wonderful and creative projects within its pages. The hardest decision is going to be which project to start on first!
I have been a reader of Alicia’s blog, Posie Gets Cozy for a couple of years and have been awaiting an opportunity to read her latest book. It contains 30 projects that include techniques such as decorative embroidery, counted cross stitch, and crewelwork.
The projects have a fresh appeal, whilst still utilising some more traditional designs.
Here is a peak at some of my favourite projects –
Embroidery Companion will be going on my Christmas list for sure!
Are there any new craft/sewing books that you would recommend?
