Booklist 2018
The content goes far beyond the title. Baron’s book, first published in Great Britain in 2004, features flowers in embroidery, but also in painting, resist dyeing, collage, and other techniques. What she reveals is how to create elegant pictures that just happen to include thread. Her directions do occasionally meander, but at her work’s center are three designs—Summer Meadow, Buttercup Field, and Flowers by the Fence—with step-by-step, color-photograph instructions for every part of the process, from dyeing the background to selecting a frame. She mixes techniques in with her designs, looking at machine embroidery, sponging and masking, and a variety of resists (bubble wrap, for one). It’s a small tome, but one filled with big ideas and wall-to-wall examples of Baron’s art, whether the process of hand dyeing or finished fields of blooms. — Barbara Jacobs
