By Carolyn Hedge Baird. More than a flight of fancy, Needlepoint Stitches: A Field Guide for Birds is divided into five chapters - one chapter for each tiny, small, medium and large stitches, and a fifth chapter includes detail stitches for fine elements such as eyes, beaks, wattles, and combs. Stitches are designated with icons for front-facing birds and side-facing birds. Throughout this exquisitely detailed book, illustrations of birds provide inspiration. Each example contains stitch names, making it easy to create your own needlepoint flock. If you're ready to watch our feathered friends come to life on canvas, Needlepoint Stitches: A Field Guide for Birds is the book for you.
