Long and short stitch embroidery by Trish Burr---Not just a book, a treasure

Recently, my sister gifted me the embroidery book "Long and short stitch embroidery: A collection of flowers" by Trish Burr. It is a must-have for any embroiderer interested in this type of embroidery. After reading this book I found out what mistakes I do in my long and short embroidery.



This book is very useful and you can improve your long and short embroidery skills by carefully following the tips and techniques given by Trish.


The long and short flower photos are lovely. They look like real flowers. There are lot of small to large flower projects with clear instructions.





Out of these, my favorites are the hibiscus and red bearded iris.







I love this book and am addicted to it totally.

Your embroidered flowers are v. pretty. Thank you for your comment.
Have you tried doing the braiding on the sewing machine which means you end up with a bowl. There are a couple here:
