A few days ago I had my birthday and this was one of my favorite presents. This book was published before the embroidery book Celtic, Viking and Anglo-Saxon embroidery from Jan Messent, my favorite embroidery book.
In this book all kinds of historical knowledge is explained from an embroiderer's view. The artwork done in this book is gorgeous and it is wonderful to learn a bit more about the history of this piece of art.
Enjoy your Mother's Day!
