Needlework Animals: With Over 25 Original Charter Designs
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Most collections of needlework designs run the risk of being labeled "been there, done that." How many stitched flowers, vegetables, animals, and minerals can one crafter use? But Bradley creates more than 26 patterns to pique the interest of any needleworker, young or old, beginner or professional. Animals are her subject, one she takes seriously enough to inform readers of Latin nomenclature and unusual trivia. Data aside, the creatures captured in two dimensions are both common (butterflies) and extraordinary (carpet python); and all necessary stitching information is included. The major distinguishing aspect of her presentation is that needlework formats need be neither staid nor confined to one object; her designs cover both footstools and flooring with equal ease. Materials and conversion charts appended. Barbara JacobsFrom Library Journal:
The most notable feature of this book is the presentation of native animals in a large pictorial atlas of the world that is worked entirely in cross-stitch on interlock canvas. Individual animals can also be worked separately, in ecological groupings of plants and animals or as letters in a pictorial alphabet. The animal designs are large, colorful, and very realistic. Charts are in full color with character symbols. Colors are keyed to the line of tapestry wools available from Bradley (Needlework Antique Flowers, Crown, 1993) in Wales, which may present a problem for American users. DMC equivalents are given, however, and color matching to the charts is also possible.
