SuZy Murphy's newest book, SuZy's Surprise Stitches, has been called her "best yet" by Needlepoint Guide. It's filled with 156 useful stitches, helpful hints and stitchery humor. Not only a good read, SuZy's Surprise Stitches is a truly, valuable reference tool.
Techniques are organized into Small Stitches, Cross Stitches, Diagonal Stitches and Straight Stitches.
Each stitch is clearly graphed and accompanied by a black and white
picture and suggestions for its use. The stitches are also shown in
color on plates at the back of the book. Many stitches are done in two
colors, to make it easy to follow their patterns.
