Summer Flowers Embroidered Book

Out of stock

Another stitched treasure from the clever hands of Kate Bowles the extraordinary bookmaker – nothing to do with greyhounds or horses! Kate has made a special group of books using a sampler I designed called ‘A Year of Flowers’ and this is one of them covered with the rose and fuchsia border and sunflowers and poppies. The design covers all the outside of the book and was stitched on ivory 28-count Cashel linen in counted cross stitch and using stranded cottons (floss).

This book is filled with upcycled papers, envelopes, squared paper even manuscript papers. It has linen ribbon closure. It will be supplied in tissue and gift boxed.

This book measures 4 x 6in (10 x 15.5cm).

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.
