Bayeux Stitch, by Tanya Bentham

This must be book week as I have another book to draw your attention to-Bayeux Stitch by Tanya Bentham.  Bayeux stitch is what is usedin the Bayeux Tapestry and other Medieval embroideries.  Tanya's an expert on this historical stitching.

Not familiar with the Bayeux Tapestry?  In short, it is the story of William the Conquerer's little jaunt to England in 1066 done in embroidery using the couched and laid stitch we now call Bayeux stitch.
