The next two books are really useful if you want to add colour, texture and pattern to large areas of your embroidery.
Blomkamp, Hazel. Needle Weaving Techniques for Hand Embroidery. Tunbridge Wells, UK: Search Press, c2017.
Some of us have been having difficulty with the needle weaving in Hazel Blomkamp’s designs. This book should help out. It is full of hints and techniques; charts and directions for 42 patterns. Needle weaving is excellent for filling in blank spaces in your embroidery.
Blomkamp, Hazel. Needle Lace Techniques for Hand Embroidery. Tunbridge Wells, UK: Search Press, c 2017.
As with needle weaving, needle lace can be used to fill in blank spaces. It is also used in whitework and stumpwork. 48 stitches are presented with very clear diagrams and directions. There are no pictures of the lace. However, these can be found in other books.
