Needlepainting, also known as thread painting or silk shading, is a form of embroidery that creates a realistic lifelike effect using a single strand of thread and one simple stitch--the 'long and short' stitch.  With this method, you can create gorgeous color gradients, magical details and flowing stitch directions that are perfect if you want to embroider flora and fauna.

In this richly illustrated step-by-step guide, self-taught embroidery artist Emillie Ferris shows you how to pick up and needle and thread in the same way as a paintbrush to create strokes of color and bring images to life on fabric.  Each design has around 60 detailed step-by-step photos, showing every stage of the process, so that even complete beginners can follow along and create beautiful designs.

Not only are the embroideries sublime, but the boot itself is a thing of beauty, with incredible attention to detail--from the exquisite photography to the lavish hardback binding, making it a real treasure for the book lover.  Plus, high quality iron-on transfers at the back of the book allow you to transfer the designs directly onto fabric to get started right away.
