Book review .. Patchwork loves embroidery by Gail Pan.

Good morning all

This is a lovely paperback book and would make a great Christmas gift....

This is a wonderful collection of patchwork and hand-embroidery projects that quilters and crafters everywhere will love. Quilters, crafters, and embroiderers of all skill levels will be thrilled with these whimsical patterns from Australian designer Gail Pan. Featuring full-sized hand-embroidery designs, Patchwork Loves Embroidery is for anyone who wants to enjoy the relaxing hobby of putting needle to thread. You can choose from 15 projects, including wall hangings, table runners, totes, and fabric covers for books or folders. You can quickly learn the basics: using the correct needle, choosing threads & fabrics, and transferring the designs. You can embellish projects with sweet, garden-inspired motifs ranging from charming little birds to beautiful flowers, fanciful cottages, and more.

There a pretty pictures of all the makes and instructions for you to carry them out.  You could either do it with new fabrics as it is in the book or use some vintage ones.  Some of the ideas in the book would make a great gift for someone.

A must for anyone who who like to start making their Christmas gifts for stitcher's in the family!

You can buy it on Amazon if your local book shop does not have it or can not order it for you.
