Jane Nicholas has long been fascinated by beetles. This book features the beetle not only in stumpwork but in many other forms of embroidery: glittering goldwork, beaded beetles from mosaic buttons, redwork beetles and beetles in surface stitchery using lustrous silk and metallic threads.
By Pat Trott
This beautiful richly textured, white-on-white embroidery was developed in the early nineteenth century in Mountmellick, Ireland - where designs were inspired by nature and the lovely flowers growing around the area.
