This book is designed around the idea of four seasons in a circle with each of the seasons represented in the circle blending into each other. You can do the seasons as shown or all four separately. Stitches used are clearly shown in step by step color photos so that you can reproduce all of the wonderful elements of the pictures shown. In fact, every single element of the picture shown on the front of the book is clearly explained so that you can reproduce this picture exactly. But dont stop there! Use these clear and easy instructions to create your own stumpwork creations on your current needlepoint. Look at the lovely dragonfly in the center! Couldnt you use that? The sheep are so adorable! The deer will teach you that long stitch. The lily pads teach you needlelace. Look at those daffodils! That squirrel running down the tree! Theres LOTS here to learn! I can see using this as a great class in stumpwork. Just so inspiring! Eighty pages, paperbound, a real deal at $17.95. Also consider their first two books, Beginners Guide to Stumpwork and Stumpwork Figures.
