Blog > A Passion for Needlework | The Whitehouse Daylesford

 

I am so proud to be part of this gorgeous book titled: A Passion for Needlework | The Whitehouse Daylesford

Compelled by the belief that every embroidery has a story waiting to be told, ‘A Passion for Needlework’ is a series of books that tell these stories. Stories of beautiful needlework set in stunning, unique locations.

A Passion for Needlework | The Whitehouse Daylesford is the 4th release in the series.

 

And this is my project titled Wood Anemones! I really enjoyed making this piece and I think you will too! It's got a little of everything, from Silk Ribbon Embroidery to stumpwork to fibre work and surface embroidery, it's a fun project suitable for the beginner and the advanced embroiderer.

 

 

You can purchase the book today as a pre-order using the link below:

I can't wait to receive my copy!

 

A Passion for Needlework | The Whitehouse Daylesford will be released in late September, at which time the kit for Wood Anemones should also be available for purchase from Inspirations I see my friends Trish Burr and Hazel Blomkamp are also featured along with the world's-best designers like Susan O' Connor, Jane Nicholas, Georgina Bellamy, Anna Scott, and many more!
