The A-Z of Silk Ribbon Flowers

If you are interested in silk ribbon embroidery, especially using a touch of paint here and there for accents on a variety of floral shapes, then this book review of the A-Z of Silk Ribbon Flowers is something you'll want to read.

Note that this is one of the A-Z embroidery series, but it is different from Sue Gardner's A-Z of Silk Ribbon Embroidery.  This is flowers only, and authored by Ann Cox.  Ann has written several books on silk ribbon embroidery which are very nice.  I've borrowed her Silk Ribbon Embroidery:  Designs and Techniques (gorgeous flowers!) and her Beginner's Guide to Silk Ribbon Embroidery (terrific introduction to SRE) and thought they were great so I am sure that this new book will be fabulous and it also takes the art of making flowers from silk ribbons to a whole new level.

If you aren't familiar with silk ribbon embroidery, I think Ann's Beginner's Guide is a better buy, but if you want to really experiment with SRE flowers, this is a good book to add to your library.
