On the Shelf

Let's see what's on the bookshelf... There's a new book by Aimee Ray of Doodle Stitching called "The Motif Collection" (Lark) of over 400 easy embroidery designs (including a CD of all the patterns). Needlepointer, DJ and friend Kurt B. Reighley has authored "United States Of Americana" (Harper). A witty, fun, and highly informative "field guide to the new American grass roots movement". (Did I tell you that I'm profiled in his book, mom?) And last, but certainly not least: Emily Martin released "The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer" (Potter Craft) last fall. This is the book I can't wait to play with!

Don't forget! Sublime Stitching The Black Apple Embroidery Patterns by Emily Martin
