This book brings a new and fresh approach to wool/crewel embroidery, that both a beginner and a more experienced stitcher can appreciate. There are 15 designs, which are clearly photographed, with easy-to-understand written directions and illustrations. Jo’s take away: embroidery rewards patience and dedication, and the key is to embrace the slowness rather than begrudge it and enjoy the process as much as the end result. I totally agree!
