Sophie Long (who worked on Kate Middleton's wedding dress!) has put together the most exquisite book on needlework that I have ever seen.
As well as instructions on every technique imaginable it also features a wealth of textile inspiration. Just about every page is sewing eye candy.
But what's that you say? That little fellow holding a chicken? Yes he does look familiar...
Woodland embroideries I designed last year. I had totally forgotten that I had been asked to submit some photos for a new book, as it was over a year ago.
But then I got an email from the publisher's last week and then the book arrived!
