Carol Andrews' training in botanical drawing and painting shines through in this book. She aims to paint in thread all the plants in her world throughout the seasons, capturing their passing beauty. Surface stitches and subtle padding techniques are used together with skilful blending of colours to depict leaves, stems, flowers, seedpods and berries. It's inspiring and informative for embroiderers on all levels.
