Inspired by her love of wildflowers, Kazuko Aoki has created a collection of more than 20 projects and over 70 individual cross-stitch motifs. Designs are included for all your floral favourites, such as viola, pansies, poppies and roses. These motifs are used to create traditional samplers, as well as bags, pincushions, pillows, coasters, aprons and tea towels. Instructions are presented in counted cross-stitch charts, plus step-by-step diagrams for constructing projects.
KAZUKO AOKI is a talented and popular Japanese textile artist whose work features in many embroidery magazines and exhibitions. Her delicate pictures are inspired by her great love of nature, and the flowers in her own garden, which often provide the starting point for her creative designs. Kazuko loves to combine other embroidery techniques with cross stitch to introduce a beautiful and unexpected element in her designs and, in the process, create an original new style.
