Combining her considerable talents and infectious enthusiasm of William Morris, Beth Russell has adapted a number of his most beautiful designs to create an original needlepoint collection for the home. Morris was probably the most prolific and talented designer that the nineteenth century ever witnessed. Inspired by the natural world around him, he produced a wealth of designs for embroideries, tapestries and wallpapers. Beth Russell’s needlepoint projects are a unique interpretation of this work and pay due homage to his creative genius. A beautifully produced and photographed book. There are patterns for 21 designs, with clear, easy-to-follow instructions, including a conversion table from Appleton wools to DMC stranded cotton.
Most of these projects are worked in tent stitch for canvas, and the accompanying colour charts enable the reader to follow the instructions with ease. All materials needed for this project are indicated, including the amount of yarn to buy and advice is given on stitching and finishing off.
Hardcover, with a dust cover. We have one only of this book.
