Description

A World of Embroidery            

12 months of different embroidery techniques with a floral theme.   

Each month will highlight a different technique starting with a simple April Showers Redwork piece that also incorporates some basic embroidery stitches.  A fun piece for anyone from an absolute beginner to a more advanced needleworker.
