This is a very special book to me, designed as a little pathway into the world of ‘Jennyland’. It captures photographs of some of my key pieces of embroidery, together with a text to explain my work and the philosophy behind it.
This also serves as a sketch book with 26 pages with pale lines and 30 plain pages of high quality drawing paper. These are interspersed with sheets of embroidery-themed patterns and magical quotes which have always inspired me, and which I hope will inspire you too.
The heavy card cover includes the quote ‘Isn’t it true, what small can do, with a thread and a thought and a stitch or two?’ from the folk song ‘A Stitch in Time’ by Mike Waterson ….a cautionary tale of why we should all learn to stitch and how powerful a skill it can be!
Because every embroiderer loves a lovely sticker….the book ends with a set of 12 gorgeous stickers, their designs based on those of antique thread reel labels (with which I am endlessly fascinated), with lovely stitch-related quotes.
I hope you will enjoy purchasing this book just to enjoy, but also to fill with your own notes and doodles to inspire your stitch projects.
