Contemporary Embroidery

 ... now in book form.  Some of it is beautiful, and some is modern art that's not really meant the same way.

I have tried my hand at various styles of embroidery.  I don't have the patience to sit and paint with thread for hours.  However, some of the stitches are enormously useful for other purposes.  I use the blanket stitch for edging blankets and for doing applique on tabards.   Handy skills.  And if I want to get fancy, I have reference materials to do more.  I do admire the art form and generally like looking at its pictures.
