Item details

This is a wonderful book of techniques on how to paint flowers and ribbons with proper shading. There is a 16" by 21" pullout centerfold section with large sketches you can copy. There are also many additional patterns inside including a variety of flowers. One of the photos shows the table of contents.

The book includes VERY detailed instructions on preparation and painting each of the flowers. You are shown how to shade, add highlights and tint and it tells you what colors and materials are needed.

These patterns can also be painted with different colors or used with other techniques such as embroidery. You are the artist, so use your imagination.

If you have trouble reading the table of contents (photo 2) press your control key and the + key together a few times to enlarge the screen shot. (Control and - will return the screen to previous size.)

All orders (except for pattern books) will ship by tracked First Class Mail but in most cases you have the option to upgrade to Priority Mail. All purchases will be mailed by the next business day after payment unless it is a made to order item. If an order will not fit into one of the mailers I use, I will either split the order or use a clean, recycled box, whichever method is the most economical. I ALWAYS immediately refund any excess postage over $1. Pattern books will be sent by less expensive Media Mail.
Orders will be shipped by first class mail with tracking. An upgrade to international expedited shipping (Priority Mail) is available. Please contact me for rates.

Orders that are shipped out of the United States will have a declared, actual value and buyer is responsible for any extra taxes or custom tariffs that your country may impose. You should learn about these before you place an order. I will not ship items as "gifts" to attempt to evade these fees. Be aware that customs clearance may cause delays in receiving your shipment. Once a package is given to the post office, I have no control over its time of arrival ESPECIALLY in December.

Buyer is responsible for making sure that the mailing address is correct prior to making the purchase. Please let me know if this is a gift and if you want any message sent with it.

If ordering 2 or more items, they will be shipped together and the postage will depend upon the weight and dimensions of the package. Sometimes it is less expensive AND FASTER to ship them separately by First Class mail. In general, it is impossible to estimate postage for more than one item until I know what items are being mailed. Refunds are made promptly for any over-payment of postage over $1.00. If you have any questions about this before ordering, just ask - or read my reviews.


I accept payment by all means through Etsy. Items will be mailed upon confirmation of payment and are mailed the same or next business day unless it is a custom order. I NEVER have access to your payment information as it is all handled by Etsy.

If an order is cancelled after the item has shipped, refund will be made upon the undamaged return of the item minus any postage provided it is in the original condition and unworn.

If a custom order is cancelled for any reason, the amount refunded will depend upon the cost of any materials purchased specifically for the project and any work performed.

Returns & exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Additional return information
The above comment is Etsy boilerplate I am unable to delete. However, if you have a problem with a purchase, please let me know immediately and I will see what can be done. Refunds and exchanges will be made on a case by case basis. No refunds will be made for postage. Please be aware that colors may look different on different monitors and I try my best to describe yarn colors.

On custom orders we will confer many times on what you desire for before I begin knitting because I know how special these are to you. These items are usually not easily sold and often require special orders for yarn, so I am unable to accept returns on custom items.

Additional policies

I take extreme care in my knitting and will rip out hours of work if a very visible mistake can't be corrected another way, especially in color work. However, these items are knit by hand, stitch by stitch, not by machine, and therefore it is possible for a small "oops" such as a stray stitch to be purled instead of knit or to be the wrong color in a multicolored knit. This in no way detracts from the beauty and just proves the item is handmade.

Also, please don't forget your feedback. If you have a problem, kindly let me know before posting any feedback so we can work out a solution.

Thank you and come back soon! I try to add new items every week.
