"Hog Heaven"

I went to the library with our two youngest yesterday and checked out the most fabulous, yummy, creative needlework book. It's called "Needlework Masterpieces from Winterthur" by Hollis Greer Minor. It's been around for a while but I've been reading my way through some other sections of the building :)

I love the basic introduction to Winterthur, the du Pont family and basic embroidery. Makes you want to research in more depth. I want to try making the brick cover :)

Guess I'll have to put a trip to Delaware on my "to visit" list and the book on my "to buy" list.

The other book I checked out (to help me teach my youngest daughter) is "Cross-stitch For The First Time" by Donna Kooler. The featured designers are Barbara Baatz, Emie Bishop, Janelle Giese, Linda Gillum, Sandy Orton, Tina & Teri Richards, and Nancy Rossi. Love the projects and how the to do sections are broken down into easy follow along "how to ..." chapters
