Descripción del producto


Myshelf.com:I hope you have a large coffee table for this big, beautiful book; you will certainly spend many a happy hour leafing through it as you sip your Java! Large, lush and lovely you will spend even more happy hours stitching the items charted and admiring them.Divided into four seasons, this book contains charts for a good number of needlepoint projects requiring those old favorites woolen yarn and canvas. Each project features a large, full color chart, key for threads, luscious photograph of the finished work and quite a bit of information about the subject. You can read all about the various flowers and some of the creatures shown, as well as quotations from poetry, hints for gardeners and more photos of a beautiful home where the items are displayed. The four samplers are shown ringed with flowers of the season which looks just wonderful. You don't need much embroidery know-how either to complete these projects, which are surely just the thing to relax with during long winter evenings. One of those books which is likely to remain a firm favorite - just beautiful, and easy to use too.

Biografía del autor

Elizabeth Bradley is a well known designer of decorative needlework. Her designs are inspired by Berlin needlework which was popular in the 19th century, and by the style, artifacts and decorative trends of that period. She has been a collector of original Victorian patterns and pieces for many years and worked as an antique dealer after leaving university in 1969. She became a specialist dealer in 1979 concentrating exclusively on samplers and embroidery. It was the growing scarcity of good original pieces that led to the establishment of her company, Elizabeth Bradley Designs Ltd., in 1986. The company manufactures a range of high quality needlework kits based on Victorian designs and these are now sold throughout the world.Elizabeth lives in Beaumaris on the island of Anglesey in North Wales with her husband Nick and their two children. Elizabeth and Nick run the company together and have made their headquarters in a converted chapel near their home. A shop devoted to Elizabeth's products opened in Beaumaris in 1990.

My favorite needlepoint book 8 de junio de 2000
Por drdebs - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
I love this book! I have about 19 needlepoint books, but this is the one I go back to again and again. For those of you who have only worked with kits and lusted after the VERY EXPENSIVE Elizabeth Bradley kits, this is the way to go. If you are a cross-stitcher, the added plus is that Bradley advocates a cross-stitch because it makes the cushions more durable, it doesn't distort the canvas, and it's what many Victorian needleworkers did.
Elizabeth Bradley patterns are great to take with you on holidays, because you don't need a frame (as long as you use cross-stitch). The colors are beautiful, soft "Antique" English colors. Many of the patterns have a striking black background, and she gives guidance regarding color substitutions (both the sage green and pale blue work well). I've done a number of the patterns, and whenever I'm making a gift I do something from this book.
As the title suggests, the patterns are floral but there is a great deal of variety from striking lilies to Victorian wreaths.

Beautiful charted flowers, a very worthy successor to "Decorative Victorian Needlework". Book is organized by the seasons. A sampler for each season and several floral designs for each season. Informative, detailed, a conversion chart for the different brand needlepoint wools, and instructions on the preferred needlepoint stitch for working E. Bradley's designs. Plus, the delightful surprises in E. Bradley's books, in this one you must see the Plum Pudding chart. What a delightful Christmas gift a plum pudding ornament would be.

Elizabeth Bradley designs are still very popular. This books includes a few designs that cost $200.00 in kits each, plus a few that are not available as kits. Very good!

A beautiful pattern book that left me wanting more 3 de agosto de 2011

Formato: Tapa dura Compra verificada
A beautiful collection of Victorian needlework--a little of everything! Floral bouquets, individual flowers, plaids, cherubs, samplers and patchworks. Quite a variety. All vintage, all gorgeous. Not a lot of instructions for the beginner, but lots of photos of completed designs used in creative ways. Ms. Bradley thoughtfully photographs her work done two ways--completed with a light colored background and dark background. The same pattern looks completely different and causes me to be conflicted--I want to make everything in the book (which is simply not practical!)It is divided into designs for all four seasons. A nice book for any needleworkers collection.

Book is in perfect condition. It's a really good source of Elizabeth Bradley designs to stitch without the expense of purchasing a kit.
