Part of the 'Milner Craft' series

This book describes how we can all create wonderful evocations of our favourite flowers and gardens. Using silk ribbon embroidery, Helen Dafter has captured the perfect colours and formations of the flowers, trees and shrubs that she loves. The realism of her designs is remarkable, brought about by the way she has carefully observed the plants and colour-matched her silks against the growing flowers and plants in her garden.

The book contains a full range of projects, from brooches and hair clasps to beautiful bags, and, finally the glorious garden landscapes. With these landscapes, Helen has painted pale wash backgrounds on her fabric before embroidering. This technique gives the landscapes depth and extra colour and her detailed descriptions of how the paint can be applied make it a technique we can all incorporate into our work.
