{book review} Blackwork by Sonia Lucano

Embroidery is one of those crafts I have tried here and there, have used in some of my designs, but have always wanted to explore further. When stumbling onto this book it didn't take long for it to make its way home with me. Its filled with 50 projects using the stunning contrast of black and white. It is definitely a modern approach to the ancient art of embroidery, and just perfect to entice me to try the art properly.

The various stitches are explained and all patterns are included in the back of the book. Beautiful photography throughout this book makes it even more delightful.

Just a little note to say that I'm glad you're here..

My new little webstore {ink. paper. cloth.} is due to launch mid July 2012, so stay tuned for the online store that will resemble a real life store you might stumble across while strolling through a country village.. you know the one with an open wood fire, smell of freshly ground coffee beans and filled with treasures of paper & cloth, handmade delights and little quirky art materials that you just need to have in your stash..

I very much look forward to sharing my finds with you and help to get you inspired to create, to give and to celebrate life..
