13. Embroideries from an English Garden by Carol Andrews

One of the rarest books out there. I believe this is the most expensive 2nd hand book I bought so far.This is a project book. There are enough super easy projects to start with, as well as difficult projects.

Her style combines stumpwork and needlepainting techniques. She is a botanical illustrator/painter and her embroideries are detailed. Lots of padded parts.

    Thankyou for the images, and the mention “needlepainting and padded work”. I’ve seen the title of the book around the Net and always wondered about it. Now I know I want it! Expensive, yes I noticed. Drat!

      ^_^ i think I found it in ebay or amazon. I have to be sure i wanted the book and asked the seller to email me photos of the projects in the book. It is really worth its cost. good luck obtaining a copy of the book!

    I had a good look around yesterday, and copies are selling for under $40!!!! Heaps of them! It’s on my wishlist, along with the new Trish Burr one, tho I wish I could get a straight answer whether it’s for beginners, or more advanced work. I think I might get the DVD instead. You have to have the DVD to do any of Trish’s on-line courses anyway.

    Trish Burr’s DVD is brilliant, just got it today and I spent most of the day watching. I do embroidery and I learned lots, she has projects from beginners to expert, all are worth doing. Her new book is also wonderful.

    I’m getting “Embroideries…English Garden” on interlibrary loan to check it out. There’s 3 copies in Australia 🙂
