Two colours are better than one

I was a big fan of Japanese embroidery maestro Yumiko Higuchi‘s One Colour Embroidery book and I’m very excited to report that her new book, Two Colour Embroidery, is even better! It’s testament to the amazing things you can do with needle and thread – and a very simple concept.

      It is just gorgeous! I can see it on a handbag… or a cushion!

    Japanese embroideries are always my favorite. I have many books of Japanese embroidery and often buy from Japan Lovely crafts.
