This challenge we have a Visiting Librarian Glenda (My Paper Cat). Glenda frequently enters her beautiful stitched cards into the challenge, so in her honour, I've chosen an embroidery book: How to Embroider Almost Everything by Wendi Gratz.  Your entry could  be stitched but it doesn't have to be... look at all those motifs on the cover, which you could use to inspire you....
