Unrivalled in its popular appeal, cross stitch, essentially simple yet limitless in its application, is the most enduring of the needle arts. This gloriously illustrated book provides the inexperienced stitcher with all the basic information needed to start cross stitch while inspiring the enthusiast with a rich source of wonderful new designs to make. Starting with all the essential information on fabric, thread counts, embroidery threads and working the stitches, the author also discusses such professional touches as positioning the design, mitring corners, ageing fabric and stretching finished work. The designs, all of which are given with colour charts and full instructions, reflect all aspects of cross stitch ranging from traditional to contemporary and including some unique old pieces as well as witty and original modern work. A beautiful sheet turnback, splendidly embroidered with roses, would make an enduring heirloom while a child's cot blanket offers an original yet essentially simple project to make. The timeless charm of samplers is included with designs for two exquisite pictures and a cushion cover, all of which can be personalised with dates, initials and family details. More modern pieces include designs to embroider on the covers of director's chairs, and laundry bags with appliqué shapes wittily embellished with cross stitches. The wealth of inspiration is further enhanced by the final section of the book which is packed with additional and alternative designs and motifs.
