Inspirational and practical book

stitched-textile-flowersI have been dipping into Bobby Britnell’s  Stitched Textiles: Flowers as bedtime reading this week.  I’ve had it for quite a while but only just started careful browsing.

There are also five projects with clear instructions, very tempting but I will stick to finishing my coursework before indulging myself!
