Elegant Stitches : An Illustrated Stitch Guide
 and Source Book of Inspiration

Silk ribbon embroidery utilizes many of the same stitches as more traditional crewel embroidery, but the unique qualities of the ribbon make for a very different look. This beautiful book (conveniently spiral bound to lie flat when working) offers a comprehensive stitch guide and good coverage of all the basics. Each stitch is given a clear diagram, and many also include color photos of a detail featuring that stitch. In addition, Judith Baker Montano presents charming descriptions of what inspired her lovely, elaborate finished pieces, which she calls "free-form stitchery."

Stumpwork Embroidery :
 A Collection of Fruits, Flowers and Insects
 for Contemporary Raised Embroidery
 (Milner Craft Series)

Originated in the 17th century, stumpwork is a type of raised and padded embroidery that features a charming array of flowers, fruits, insects, animals, and sometimes people, all worked as delicate sculptural forms. The intricacy and detail evident in a fine piece of stumpwork is truly amazing. The sculptural quality makes this technique unique; more than just being raised off the surface in slight relief, many elements are almost fully dimensional. Fruits look ripe enough to pluck; petals and leaves seem almost to rustle in the breeze; bugs look like they've just lit on the branch. Be advised, however, that this is not a method for the timid crafter; although the book provides ample general instructions and careful analysis of individual elements before proceeding with specific projects, a good working knowledge of embroidery stitches is strongly advised. But the results are so absolutely delightful, you may want to practice honing your skills just to give this a try.
