Romantic Flowers in Cross Stitch (Paperback)
In this book readers will find a superb range of floral designs to apply to a variety of cross stitch projects, such as bedding, lampshades, cushions, curtains, towels, and more. The styles on these beautiful and timeless pieces range from shabby chic to Berlin wool work to Victorian and Edwardian. And even though the designs appear complex, much of Lima's skill is in designing them to be as simple as possible for the casual cross stitcher to make. Her designs are noted for being extremely enjoyable to stitch—and suitable for beginners to advanced embroiderers.
