Lavishly illustrated in colour, this book, with detailed step-by-step instructions accompanied by numerous explanatory diagrams, explains how to create beautiful beetle-themed designs and projects in stumpwork, goldwork, beading, appliqué and surface embroidery, using a variety of threads and materials (including beetle wings).

This is another beautiful book by Jane Nicholas with excellent diagrams and instructions. So far I have done four of the five goldwork beetles following the instructions provided and all have been very successful. I'm about to attempt using beetle wings so this book has encouraged me to branch out. I would definitely recommend beetling to anyone interested in hand embroidery!
