"I named my book, "Merry Needlepoint", because I feel merry when I needlepoint. Merry, as defined in the Random House Dictionary means "full of cheerfulness or gaiety, joyous in disposition or spirit". I want this book to reflect my passion and joy for needlepoint. Stitching is so rewarding and creative. A stitcher by no means has to create a perfect piece of art. To enjoy stitching without worrying about rules and techniques can free one's spirit and increase self confidence. Feel merry when you needlepoint. I hope this book helps!"
This book includes the following types of stitches - small stitches, backgrounds, laid fillings, darning patterns for backgrounds, merry checks, border stitches, silk ribbon embroidery, details, lettering, merry embellishments, stitching records and more inspirational books.
