Book I'm digging
I found this book at the library a while ago, it went home with me because I wanted to learn some more embroidery stitches. Mary Thomas' Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches. I keep renewing it, cause it's just so great.
Simple explanations, plus a bit of history about each stitch. But I think what I like the best is the diagrams and pictures, all in colour. A delight to look through.
But to be honest, I haven't learnt a lot of new stitches... I just like looking at the pictures! But I will, eventually...
