Elegant Stitches,great reference book, hand embroidery progress....
Strawberries n' Chocolate, crazy quilt style, sewing kit progress being made! I have add hand embroidery; stem, feather, cross, straight and french knot, etc.
You can see my trusty copy of Elegant Stitches by Judith Baker Montano, never far from my reach when I am embroidering.
