I've been waiting for over a year to tell you. I received a request from a 'scout' to provide images for consideration in a 2nd edition of Pauline Brown's 'The Encyclopedia of Embroidery Techniques' out of the UK. How exciting!! I sent images in and they contacted me to say that one of my embroideries was selected!! More than a year later, I finally have the copy in my hands. It was released only 3 weeks ago. I brought it to my class to make the announcement. ! : )
I really like the way this book is laid out. 75% of the book is formal embroidery instruction which is clear with diagrams and photographs and examples. The last 25% of the book is a themed artist gallery full up with beautiful images to provide inspiration and application potential. The themed section is divided into chapters: People & Animals, Landscape, Floral, Abstract, Objects / Garments. I'm in the Landscape section and very honored to be included with the likes of Alison Holt, Mitra McQuilton, Wendy Lees, Sue Stone, Trish Burr, Emillie Ferris and on, and on - beautiful work by so many.
Gosh - I have an entire page too!! SWOON
Thank you so much to Search Press, Quatro Publishing, and Pauline Brown.
HAPPY NEW YEAR INDEED!
