Something new has been added to the time-honored art of Bargello needlework: a fresh approach to Color. Color is used in imaginative new ways, to add zest to classic designs. For example, the old favorite 'Domes and Spires,' is worked in five closely shaded golds, sparked with two red shades; the flame stitch is done in two bright shades of turquoise with hot pink, orange and yellow. Instructions for 'modernizing' these traditional designs appear in 'Bargello: An Explosion in Color' among with many colorful, brand-new patterns.
Margaret Boyels is as accomplished a teacher as she is a skilled and creative needleworker. Her exceptionally clear instructions, along with 54 full-color charts and 54 full-color illustrations gradually lead the novice or average embroider from designs labeled 'Easy' and 'Average' to such Advanced patterns as the sensational, new mitered Bargello. And even the simplest designs in the book are beautiful.
