Summary: Bestselling author and designer Brenda Keyes brings readers an inspiring collection of 35 small-scale counted thread embroidery designs. With motifs that range from modernist yellow birds to a Celtic-inspired mythical bird, from traditional samplers to a jewel-like panel based on medieval stained glass, there are styles and subjects to suit every taste. And because these projects are small scale, they are perfect for trying out any of the featured techniques, including blackwork, goldwork, whitework, canvaswork, beadwork, Bargello and Assisi embroidery. Most of the charted designs are worked as framed pictures and, because presentation of these exquisite miniatures is so important, great attention is paid to finishing and framing. All the designs are extremely versatile and there are ideas for adapting each project into a range of delightful gifts, including cards, pin cushions, pot lids, wall hangings, and bed linen borders.

Riassunto: Good things come in small packages-as these charming counted-stitch miniatures prove! Use your needlework skills to cross-stitch plants and animals, birds and trees, houses and baskets. At the start, you'll find a stitch directory and all the basic information needed to understand charts, calculate fabric quantities, and work with threads, hoops and frames. Then choose any one of the 34 projects, among them The Boxers, inspired by a 17th century sampler; bright Victorian flowers; and a golden cherub that's simplicity itself to make. Those who believe bigger is better can use the instructions for enlarging the patterns! A Selection of BOMC's Crafters Choice Book Club.
