Bullen's projects are designed with the beginner in mind. By way of introduction, she explains basic preliminary and finishing techniques, including tracing or transferring designs and making stencils. Also covered are essential methods for completing pieces, from stretching a larger embroidered piece to mounting or framing a panel. Each project is accompanied by easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions, and Bullen has made certain that the pillows, slippers, greeting cards, book covers, and decorative panels can all be accomplished using the easiest stitches or quilting techniques. They are embellished with floral patterns, butterflies, stars, or the most challenging motif in the repertoire, Celtic designs. Alice Joyce
