Beautiful Beaded Embroidery is a stunning book of 17 projects that include full-size patterns and step-by-step instructions that include color photographs.

The book is not for the faint of heart. It requires (if you're a novice) determination and desire. If you're up for it, it's possible to make some scintillating projects. If you're an experienced beader and know how to embroider, you're in for smooth sailing and hours and hours of creative joy.

Each pattern includes the necessary supplies, a pattern (with instructions), and the order in which the work is to be done. Each project includes step-by-step instructional photographs to help you visually seen how the project should look.

While all the projects (which are works of art) are lovely, my personal favorites are: The Beaded Flower, Dare to Dream (which includes wonderful instructions on how to bead a covered button), how to make a strawberry, Rejoice (a gorgeous Christmas bell), and Purple Passion (a smocked and beaded evening bag).

You will be spending your time making luscious keepsakes. Beautiful Beaded Embroidery is that good!

Armchair Interviews says: If you love to embroider and are into beading, watch out! This book will create an excitement level that will make it difficult to get anything else done.
