Waiting for new books

I'm slowly getting on with my project which is taking shape nicely and I'm very pleased with how it's looking but I'm currently waiting for my new books to arrive from amazon if anyone has them and can give me any feed back on them that would be really helpful I've ordered two
blackwork books the first is Blackwork Embroidery by
Elisabeth Geddes, Moyra McNeill and the other is The New Anchor Book of Blackwork Embroidery Stitches: Techniques and Designs by
Jill Cater Nixon, Book Anchor, Anchor... I've also ordered something that looked really interesting and fun which is Embroidered Effects: Projects and Patterns to Inspire Your Stitching (Sublime Stitching) (Spiral-bound)
Jenny Hart .

It seems to be getting very difficult to find good books on blackwork at the moment I'm off to Spain in 8 weeks time so I'm hoping I can find a little treasure in some book shops there that you can't pick up anywhere else fingers crossed have a great day everyone and I will be reviewing the new books once I have them

  1. Hi Dean, can't help out with the reviews but I will be back at the Embroiderers guild in September and I've been volunteered to act as librarian so I wil check out the books and see if there are any younwould like. I will ask round as well see if anyone can help.

  2. Hi Lynn,
    Thank you so much for your reply that would be fantastic I am now finding it really difficult to find any at the moment looked on the Internet and tried all my local book stores but had no joy so I would appreciate any help and once again thankyou ....Dean
