Designer and busy mom Katheryn Beiber has learned to work in 15 minute increments. And these 30 projects, made from luscious hand-dyed silk ribbons and vintage jewelry, were devised in much the same way--on the move. With plenty of diagrams to illustrate each stitch, fold, and gather, Beiber presents all the basics, from the tools to use to the embroidery techniques. But it's the exquisite items that will enchant, including a vintage rose or butterfly bookmark; a "sweetheart outfit" for a little girl; and an heirloom hat decorated with crystals, beads, and flower pins.
