    I am grateful for the opportunity to preview this book in exchange for an honest review. I was drawn to this title because of the subject matter. Art and craft books are my addiction. While the embroidery was lovely, I didn't find it to be particularly special. While I enjoying seei...

    An absolutely gorgeous guide for embroidering flowers! I wish I could embroider this well - I'd embroider every stitch of clothing I own with flowers. Embroidering can be soothing, but whenever I try it, my stitches never turn out so even and consistent as Kazuko Aoki's have. Highly re...

    This beautifully produced instruction manual has so many unexpected extras! I am impressed, although I feel more of a novice than before. The detailed photographs of the embroidered botanical delights included various stages of growth or life-cycle; the instructions advise how to deter...

    Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital copy of this book in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own. I'm self taught when it comes to embroidery and I love it. When I saw this title come up on NetGalley I knew I had to check it out. This is a great book...

    A beautiful book with beautiful photos. There is detailed info about the flowers pictured, with diagrams and material needed. I love this book just for the photos alone. It looks to me that this book would be for more advanced embroiderers but don't let it stop you from just enjoying t...

    Beautiful book. Great photos and detailed information about the basics of embroidery. So many flowers with excellent detail. I like the way that the patterns are given, with a picture of the flower and the type of stitch near each area. The thing I would change is to have the picture o...

    This popped up on my Net Galley recommendations list and the cover art looked so pretty that I immediately requested it, knowing that I don't nearly have enough time in my life to embroider these days. I received it in exchange for my honest review. This book contains a wide variety...

    This was really cute and a decent intro into embroidery. Some of the skills required are basic, while others are harder. This is one of those rare circumstances when I feel the ebook is more useful than the paper copy, as you have to copy the patterns to transfer them, and the paperbac...

    Another beautiful book by Kazuko Aoki. Flower embroidery can often come across as dated, looking a lot like what you suspect your grandmother or great-grandmother put on pillows and in frames. Ms. Aoki's work takes on a fresh, modern tone that leaves you sighing with visual delight. Th...
