Bring the beauty of nature into your life – all year long. In her Introduction to THE HAND-STITCHED FLOWER GARDEN, author Yuki Sugashima writes, “From the beginning, I wanted to stitch my own designs and discovered that even the simplest of drawings can gain depth and beauty by expressing it in stitches. My previous experience as a floral designer instilled in me a passion for flowers, and I was soon creating floral motifs and arrangements, this time, in thread.” Organized by season, Yuki’s book presents a gallery of embroidery patterns reflecting the glorious variety of the garden, plus season-specific projects. With step-by-step instructions, photos, and actual-sized templates, even the novice needlecrafter can get right to work.  “Try to keep that jaw from hitting the floor. The patterns in The Hand-Stitched Flower Garden are absolutely stunningly gorgeous.” – AllFreePaperCrafts.com “[Yuki’s] photos are always gorgeous! And her embroidery is always, delicate, clean, neat, and simple. She has a lovely style. . . .
