Hand-stitched Landscapes and Flowers is a beautiful exploration of the potential of embroidery in depicting the natural world.
Katrina Witten, who is a regular on crafts channel Hochanda, uses no more than six simple stitches for each embroidery, plus delicate embellishments and an array of techniques and fabrics to portray pastoral scenes of fields, flowers and creatures with eye-catching three-dimensional effects.
There are ten detailed projects to try, depicting, among others, a hedgerow, a bluebell-emblazoned woodland, sunflowers, a poppy field and a summer scene of buddleia, butterflies and bees.

Katrina Witten is the embroiderer, designer and inspiration behind Rowandean Embroidery, a small family company designing and making some of the finest hand-stitched kits on the market today. Inspired by the countryside and nature, Rowandean's designs are for all ages and abilities, and the quality of their translation into stitch is outstanding.
From an early age, Katrina has always had an interest in embroidery. She trained as a teacher and then taught textiles in Derbyshire, UK, for twelve years. Inspired by her love of stitching, she started exhibiting nationally at craft and art shows, which led to the setting-up of Rowandean Embroidery in 1989. Katrina and her husband Ted have focused on selling their kits to the craft trade, and over the twenty-eight years in which they have been in business, they have constantly adapted to new trends and grown their global presence. A large part of their success is the personal contact they enjoy with their customers, whether it be through workshops, at trade events or in publications. Rowandean Embroidery exhibits in London, Paris, Dublin, Harrogate, Edinburgh and Birmingham in the UK; Katrina has also held workshops in Japan, Canada and the US.
