Book Review - Bead Embroidery, an RSN Essential Stitch Guide by Shelley Cox

I have picked up a few books lately and wanted to share some information about this one.  Basically, I love it!
There is a large section on bead embroidery stitches, including 15 counted thread stitches as well as 11 bead embroidery stitches.  As you would expect from the Royal School of Needlework, the stitches are beautifully diagrammed and illustrated with clear photographs.
There are 12 surface embroidery stitches which will be great for crazy quilt seam treatments and motifs.
Also you will find a large section on edging and fringing stitches!
There is some lovely eye candy within the book of examples of the various techniques - lots to inspire you!
So, I am very happy I bought this one and give it five thumbs up!

Seriously? Like I need more books? But I'll have to put it on my wish list (sigh). Thanks for sharing....I think
