10th Anniversary Edition of Home Sweet Home: An Embroidered Workbox by Carolyn Pearce.

This book published by Inspirations Studios takes the reader step-by-step through embroidering and constructing a charming cottage workbox and a gorgeous selection of needlework accessories for storing favorite tools.

Besides learning myriad stitching techniques, the embroiderer will also discover how to construct and assemble embroidered pieces into a wide variety of usable needlework accessories. These finishing skills can be applied to all kinds of projects and designs in your future embroidery journey.

Home Sweet Home is a real gem, as its sell-out rate from previous editions attests. You'll love it not just for the endearing projects within, but perhaps more importantly for the instructional value when it comes to finishing embroidery into useful items in accessible, clever ways.

The project in the new edition has been refreshed and expanded, with a scissor sheath, pinwheel, and bodkin holder now added, along with updated lining fabric. The book showcases new photography and a refreshed layout.

You'll find instructions for stitching and constructing 12 accessories, a lift out tray, and storage for all your sewing notions.

If you'd like to read more detailed information on the project, you can read my review of the original edition of Home Sweet Home here.
