The beautiful Inspirations Magazine issue #115 | Primroses & Violets
My favourite needlework magazine—the world’s most beautiful needlework—issue #115 is now on the shelves and on the way to all subscribers! It features my Primroses and Violets project that I think you will enjoy making, I hope you will have as much fun as I had!
What you will find in this issue…
In this issue, you will find exquisite projects using delicate textures and vibrant colours. Layers of colour and texture elevate the stitching experience and enhance the beauty of the projects in issue 115, with the use of raised embroidery techniques, cutwork, silk ribbon, wool threads, and translucent and hand-dyed fabrics with compelling surface embroidery.
