Review:

Myshelf.com:I hope you have a large coffee table for this big, beautiful book; you will certainly spend many a happy hour leafing through it as you sip your Java! Large, lush and lovely you will spend even more happy hours stitching the items charted and admiring them.Divided into four seasons, this book contains charts for a good number of needlepoint projects requiring those old favorites woolen yarn and canvas. Each project features a large, full color chart, key for threads, luscious photograph of the finished work and quite a bit of information about the subject. You can read all about the various flowers and some of the creatures shown, as well as quotations from poetry, hints for gardeners and more photos of a beautiful home where the items are displayed. The four samplers are shown ringed with flowers of the season which looks just wonderful. You don't need much embroidery know-how either to complete these projects, which are surely just the thing to relax with during long winter evenings. One of those books which is likely to remain a firm favorite - just beautiful, and easy to use too.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Bradley is a well known designer of decorative needlework. Her designs are inspired by Berlin needlework which was popular in the 19th century, and by the style, artifacts and decorative trends of that period. She has been a collector of original Victorian patterns and pieces for many years and worked as an antique dealer after leaving university in 1969. She became a specialist dealer in 1979 concentrating exclusively on samplers and embroidery. It was the growing scarcity of good original pieces that led to the establishment of her company, Elizabeth Bradley Designs Ltd., in 1986. The company manufactures a range of high quality needlework kits based on Victorian designs and these are now sold throughout the world.Elizabeth lives in Beaumaris on the island of Anglesey in North Wales with her husband Nick and their two children. Elizabeth and Nick run the company together and have made their headquarters in a converted chapel near their home. A shop devoted to Elizabeth's products opened in Beaumaris in 1990.
