By Trish Burr. Hardback 240 pages.
As the title suggests, we have here all the elements of whitework in the techniques, material and composition, with the introduction of colour to bring contemporary zing.
Instructions are typically detailed and excellent and Trish Burr succeeds in taking the fear out of satin stitch by breaking it down so that there are gains for both beginners and the more advanced stitchers.
There are 17 projects ranging from classic Jacobean type designs to still life designs with flowers both simple and more complex, a teacup, a vase to contemporary slightly 70’s style harlequin type designs. And of course it wouldn’t be Trish Burr without a bird in the mix.
If you are looking for new, interesting projects there is something for everyone here.
