So good that you are giving feedback on the book you got because precisely I've ordered the same book from Amazon as well, I should be getting it by Monday.

In your opinion... which particular stitch did you find easier than others ? (I mean... maneuvering the ribbon thru the stitch)

Thanks for sharing !

I found some of the stitches where you have to leave a loop of ribbon on the right side of the embroidery a little tricky -- you need to hold the loop steady and not pull through all the way on the back.  For example, the peach-colored flower in the middle of the arrangement at the start of this thread.  Also, I did a LOT of French knots for this project, and I occasionally went through phases of leaving them too loose and a little dopey looking.

I really enjoy doing couching, like on the bow of the bouquet at the top of this thread.  Straight stitch, stem stitch, and ribbon stitch are all pretty easy.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

This is really neat. It looks like it would be complicated, but I'd like to try it sometime.

Give it a shot.  It's easier than it looks, and it works up really fast.

I like the book I mentioned in my first post above (the one with the pictures).  It's mostly iron-on transfers (including the one I used to make these items), but it has a few pages at the front and back that tell you all you need to know to start stitching, especially if you have already done other forms of needlework.

If you don't have local access to the needles and ribbons needed, I think you can get them at lacis.com (I buy my stuff in person at their store in Berkeley).
