Lynette Anderson offers stitchers a new book filled with country cottage ambiance, with sweet bungalows and blooming gardens, angelic gardeners and adorable four-legged friends. She is inspired by the British country village of her childhood.

Lynette's Best-Loved Stitcheries: 13 Cottage-Style Projects You'll Adore includes projects perfect for gifting and quilts to enhance your home's walls. Lynette loves to make projects that can be used every day.

I so love the use of applique and buttons and embellishments incorporated into the designs.

Lynette shares her techniques for transferring and marking embroidery designs, how to prevent thread shadowing, and includes a stitch guide. She explains how to use variegated floss successfully.

Prairie Points enhance Lynette's needlecase holder and the scissors holder has a tassel cord, seen below. You learn so many techniques in this book!

Lynette shares her technique for giving fabric a vintage look by speckling, seen in the Redwork pillows.

Lynette offers a tutorial on her favorite applique techniques, turned-edge and Apliquick. The patterns are reversed so fusible applique can also be used.

I enjoy needle-turn applique myself but was interested to learn about Apliquick which uses semi-water-soluble paper and special rods to hold and roll turned edges of the applique pieces. Every stage of the process is shown in photographs and instructions.

The sewing caddy, above, has a hexagon back! Lynette includes English Paper Pieced hexagon instructions with photographs.

I love the oval insert on the Potting Shed Journal Cover. The lighter background for the embroidery makes it pop and the darker fabric frames it beautifully. The Hexie Pencil Case could also hold your needlework tools and threads!

I was given access to a free ebook by the publisher in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
Lynette has beautiful designs and her illustrations are simple and easy to follow, her inspiration will guide you through any project and be something to admire for all time, great book, if you love quilting, stitching or sewing this is the book to have in your library!
I really love the books from Lynette Anderson, and the last one with the sticheries is a great book to have. A must have for everybody who loves patchwork combined with embroderie.
Gorgeous book. I just love the seasons one, next on my list of 'Have to do'. Brilliant.
Brilliant book , this is a must have.
My love affair with Lynette Anderson's designs began about 10 years ago when I first saw a Block of the Month quilt at a local quilt store, so I am always happy when she releases new patterns or books!

This book includes step-by-step instructions for her Apliquick method, a stitch guide for the embroidery, and lots of tips throughout. I like the variety: small, quick projects and others which require more time - all adorable, fun, and easy to customize.

That journal cover!!! Must make...

Lynette Anderson

Lynette Anderson's love affair with textiles began at a young age. She grew up in a small village in Dorset, England, where her grandmothers taught her to embroider and knit. Patchwork caught her attention 1981 after the birth of her first son. She moved with her family to Australia in 1990, which prompted the release of her first patterns in 1995. During the ensuing years Lynette has produced hundreds of patterns.

Her distinctive and appealing style, which combines simple stitchery with applique and piecing, attracts stitchers worldwide. Inspired by nature, childhood events, and her beloved pets, she enjoys designing quilts, pillows, bags, and sewing accessories.

Lynette's hand-painted wooden buttons and the fabric collections she has designed for Lecien Fabrics are the perfect complements to her creative style. One of her greatest passions is teaching, and she enjoys traveling the world to share her designs with her students.
