Shepherdess Embroidered Book

Out of stock

This beautiful book has been hand-crafted for me by Kate Bowles and is unique. It is covered in a traditional sampler, stitched for me by the late Jane Napier and was inspired by one of the samplers in my collection. Jane was a superb stitcher as you can see by the detail on this notebook cover – some of the little sheep were worked over just one fabric thread.

Kate has managed to use the complete sampler for this extraordinary work of art. Inside, the pages are beautiful quality plain paper making it perfect for notes or sketches.

The book is supplied tissue wrapped and boxed and is a very special one-off. It measures 8 x 10.5in (20 x 27cm).

The story of this little treasure

Kate Bowles makes these exquisite books from pieces of my counted embroideries, some of which are over 30 years old. I have designed quite literally thousands of cross stitch pieces since I started my business in 1983 and there are only so many that I can house. It is wonderful to see them being given a new life. Every time Kate makes me a book it is unique and cannot be repeated.
