Tell your own stories and express your own spirit with thread.
This stitchery spree through nature with master embroidery designer Juno gives you a new way to experience your embroidery: be open, be intentional, follow your own way, and then—like adding magic—watch your stories and ideas express themselves on your fabric.
Juno encourages you to open your senses to embroider beyond the visual, and 24 examples of her lovely botanical designs offer you inspiration plus projects to decorate your everyday life with stitchery: clothing, purses, bookmarks, blankets, and more. The projects include
full-size patterns, instructions, and reminders NOT to use instructions too much!
As Juno reminds us, freedom of spirit makes for your best meditative stitching: "It’s hard to immerse yourself in a project when you’re trying to stitch exactly as you envision or when you’re concerned with efficiency."
Whether your outside walks include foxes, rocks and minerals, stars, wild donkeys, squirrels, or polar bears—or five different breeds of cats?—the quirky, whimsical renditions Juno offers here are captivating. She also shares designs from fragments of nature created by the sea, sky, and mountains. Try
an aerial view of a beach
full of vacationers, or
a white slope of silent skiers
. How about sharp-textured mineral crystals like
amethyst and amazonite
With Juno's guidance, stitch your stories to be as one of a kind as you are.
