Counter The famous flowers of artist Pierre Joseph Redouté come to life.on fabric! His timeless paintings become the inspiration for both traditional and modern surface techniques, together with raised and padded areas and stumpwork. The result is a fabulous, textured 3-D effect that's perfect for floral images. Using the simplest means possible--and with the aid of a stitch glossary, diagrams, tracing outlines, and color photographs--you can achieve a professional finish. All your favorite blossoms appear in this garden: lilies, pansies, roses of many colors, dahlias, camellias, and more. A starter sampler with six flowers enables you to practice every one of the different stitches before you move on to the Brazilian amaryllis, simple anemones, magnolias, and irises. A beautiful touch of springtime in embroidery.
