The Embroidered Garden - Kazuko Aoki
Stitching Through the Seasons of a Flower Garden
From the roses and wildflowers that appear each season to the bees and butterflies that enjoy their nectar, the forty embroidery motifs here explore the abundance of the garden through the year. As a textile designer and avid gardener, Kazuko Aoki has a unique talent for translating the beauty of the garden with needle and thread. Her designs are exquisite, detailed, and artful. Full of decorative designs, including stitched wreaths to represent each season, this book also presents complete projects that feature embroidery in lovely ways: make butterfly brooches, garden-themed notebook covers, bulb-shaped pincushions, and pouches decorated with birds of spring.
With beautiful photographs, clear step-by-step instructions, and detailed diagrams, The Embroidered Garden will guide those new to embroidery and delight those experienced with needle and thread.
