    Did you think embroidery was complicated, confined to flowers and a major undertaking? This cute and clever book will dispel those myths and inspire you to take up a needle and thread even if it's for the first time ever.
     
    Fiona Goble an established craft author and owner of a textile business. The inspiration for this book came from her blog stitchaday, for which she set herself the task of producing a simple embroidery for every day of the year.

Each colourful, striking motif is shown on a specific object for inspiration, whether a towel, skirt, bag, gift card or lampshade. The projects are split into fun chapters, themed according to their uses: Eat, Sleep, Relax, Work, Play, Dress, Bath, Celebrate. and the instructions are as clear and simple as the motifs themselves.
     
    The items are often embellished with buttons and contrasting fabric trims and for each motif there is also a 'Stitch it!' star with suggestions for further uses of the motif, all of which gives the reader a wealth of inspiration for any project they wish to take on board.
     
    With an introduction to all the different stitches used in the book and a few bonus patterns should you wish to make your own pillowcase, apron or doorstop, this is a gorgeous book that will help you brighten your home or the faces of friends and family.
