Three-Dimentional Embroidery Stitches, written by Pat Trott, is the book I used for the pansies the other day. I had never heard of it when I bought it - it was strictly an inpulse buy - but I am so pleased that I picked it up. It is not a huge book, only 62 pages, but it has great stitch instructions for bullions, cast-on buttonhole, whipped spider webs, etc. Following that is a sampler of flowers with the stitches used to make them. There is more information in the book as well but I haven't explored all of it fully yet. I think it would be a useful book when embroidering landscapes. At under $20 it is a good price for the information it contains and I was lucky enough to pick it up at Michaels with their weekly 40% off coupon so I am pretty sure JoAnns would carry it as well .
Funnily enough I received my email from Amazon yesterday with their recommendations based on my previous book purchases and guess what their #1 recommendation was for me - this book! lol I guess it was meant to be that I find it one way or another!
