A follow up from our last segment on Books!
Remember I mentioned the book The Humble Bag's Wonderful Stitches by Diane Schultz? It was my out of print find.
Little did I know, I already had that book in my Library. Silly me. In 2001, Diane reprinted The Humble Bag's Wonderful Stitches, and this newer edition has more photos of the stitches including many color plates. According to the distributor, the "new one" is also out of print, but might still be on the shelves of your Favorite Needlepoint Shop.
Here's a photo of the first edition (1990) and the second edition (2001) showing the same stitch. It's almost like seeing the before and after thought process; hand drawn versus computer charting.
Side note: My duplication reminded me of the time when my mom selected a new book to read (she loves mystery paperbacks) and halfway through the book realized she had already read the book; unknowingly the artwork on the cover had been updated.
I cherish both books. The stitches are truly wonderful.
Until the next time... Hugs, Robin
