Here is the back cover of the book.......I LOVE the embroidered bag shown here...just delightful! And, there is Brian, himself! A great guy and such fun to visit with. I know he will be making even more new friends as this book is found by YOU and many other like-minded stitchers.
Every page has something to admire...this is the introduction page...notice the detail at the top of the page....all these motifs are so beautiful and ideas are everywhere.
Here is a clutch he has created...LOVE it. I have been wanting to make some coin purses....oh, let's see where will I find inspiration??
Here is that bag on the back of his book. Isn't it lovely? He loves including old photos in his work and I love the writing too. I so love this piece.
This is the cover of Brian's first book. I was so excited when I found this on amazon.com I bought it immediately. After reading it, I managed to talk with Brian and we have become great friends. I so admire his work. And, I have to say, he reminds me of my friend, Jim, who you have seen on this blog so many times. They are much alike, but very different. Well, you'll have to figure that one out for yourself! And, now, they have become great friends too. The blogging world can be so much FUN!

So, there you are....a great new book to warm you over the winter. I have already read every word in it and look forward to being inspired by all the photos and every single one of the 375 embroidery designs in it's pages. It's inspiring, as I said and since I feel I know YOU...well, I was pretty sure you would enjoy knowing about it. ENJOY!
It's been raining here today, with thunder, lightning, some wind and cooler temps. I think I'll get back under my quilt, take a pad and pen, these books of Brian's and sketch a few ideas myself. What a way to wind up a cold/rainy day! Thank you, Brian. Take care out there, pat
