Description
This is not your average embroidery book. It is a delightful collection of craft, embroidery and patchwork inspirations interspersed with anecdotes, snippets of history and personal recollections. "Eclectic, eccentric and enchanting, Bonnie Kennedy-Grant's embroidery and sewing transcend ordinary work to become art. Her eye for colour is natural, her taste exquisite, her skill extraordinary" Shonagh Koea â��When you pick up this book, with its intriguing freestyle Amazon rainforest embroidery on the cover, you want to open it up and see what is inside â�� and what a treasure chest it is!â�� Ngaire Douglas â�� Wanganui Chronicle â�� August 21, 2004 â��Magnificently beautiful and charmingly idiosyncraticâ�� Weekend Herald â�� Canvas â�� August 21-22, 2004 â��Bonnie is a storyteller from way back. This book is written to inspire imagination and to ignite the creative desire through pictures and words as Bonnie shares wonderful stories and personal recollections.â�� Louise Davidson â�� The Northern Advocate, Whangarei - 12 August 2004 â��The well-illustrated volume gives heaps of how-to information on a wide range of embroidered and quilted objects â�� including the dough beads hinted at in the title â�� and a good infusion of needlework history. It also chronicles a childhood in Africa and a long and happy marriage.â�� Ann Packer â�� The Dominion Post 4 August 2004 â��Inveterate embroiderer and teacher Bonnie Kennedy-Grant charts her creative journey From Breadballs to Brazil, and Beyond from tiny decorative sculptures from bread made as a child through many forms of needlework and embroidery â�� quilting, patchwork, appliqu�©, stumpwork, flamestitch. She writes in a chatty style, as though talking to a friend, explaining what inspired certain projects and how she created them, and, in between revealing snippets of her life story, growing up in Africa, her family, her travels. This is not a how-to manual. Rather, with its numerous illustrations, it is a book to set the creative juices running.â�� Charmian Smith â�� Otago Daily Times â�� 10 July 2004
