Diana Lampe's Embroidered Pansies

"Diane Lampe" is renowned for her skill in matching the colours of nature with the embroiderer's palette of cotton, silk or woollen threads. In this book Diane has excelled and gives all the details to allow the reader to reproduce more than 100 pansies and heartsease, all true to nature in both form and colour. The required stitches are kept to a minimum and even the inexperienced embroiderer can follow the instructions and, with a little practice, reproduce the pansies. Diana has also provided a range of embroidered projects that can be created to display the pansies, from brooches, to cushions, to 'carpets' of flowers. An illustrated stitch glossary and an extensive thread conversion chart complete the book.

About the Author

Diana Lampe is well known throughout the world for her wonderful garden flower embroideries, and is the author of four popular books on this subject.


Most people love pansies, the only flower that looks as if it has a face! Here is a whole book of embroidery patterns for them and ideas as to their use as decorations by somebody who loves and knows them very well indeed. There are an awesome number of pansies in here, illustrated in thumbnails on four pages and then in detail as the stitching of each one is explained. I particularly like the way the author gives some in depth instructions as to how to embroider them as well as can possibly be done. These include knowing which end of the cut thread to pass through your needle, how to draw and transfer a pansy, needle threading tips and of course stitching. This all comes with some useful diagrams both drawn and photographed, along with stitch diagrams at the back of the book. The bulk of the book is taken up with the pansies, and they really do come in every color imaginable. When you have tried out a few and got into your stride, there are ideas as to what to put them on and some projects. These do not come with instructions but there are some patterns for them so you too could be the proud owner of an evening bag, cushion, brooch and spectacle case. There is even a short section on crochet complete with some rather good diagrams on how to do the stitches and instructions for tea and coffee pot cosies, a corsage and basic patterns for pansy heads and leaves. Very useful for us international stitchers (this is an Australian book) is the thread conversion chart at the back so if you cannot buy Finca, Soie d'Alger or Appleton's Wools you can at least get hold of good old DMC floss. A lovely, inspiring
