Jayne Netley Mayhew has created an exquisite new collection of floral designs in cross stitch, taken from her own original paintings. Jayne's new series of cross stitch pictures is a superb blend of detailed individual flower studies and stunning groupings that hold appeal for everyone. Projects range in size and complexity, from a delicate border of violets added to a pillowcase and a traditional Victorian-style bouquet made into a footstool cover, to a simple vase of cottage flowers framed as a picture and a waistcoat embroidered with twining clematis. All the project making-up instructions are included in easy-to-follow steps, and a user-friendly stitch library and techniques section ensure a finished result as perfectly beautiful as the flowers themselves.
