Sample book

I started making this sample book many years ago. I have cut up old bits of domestic hand embroidery and sewn them into a book. I find it a useful reference tool when I am stuck for a stitch. In some cases I have deliberately sewn the fragment in back to front as I find the random marks on the back just as interesting.

  1. I love the idea for this book! What a lovely way to organise your stitch references and what a wonderfully tactile object the book must be.
