Whether it’s a field of lavender or a single gardenia, these embroidered images can be as fresh, colorful, and eye-catching as Mother Nature’s originals. Some even take the form of lifelike three-dimensional flowers. Readers who love to sew, whatever their skill level, will find instructions on the techniques and materials of this rewarding art, along with a varied assortment of projects—all inspired by actual color photographs and delicate watercolors, which appear along with the detailed stitch patterns. The projects include 12 different floral panels ready for framing, depicting flowers from daffodils and daisies to grape hyacinths and roses.
