Favourite embroidery books?

I’m doing some small scale knitted pieces in the future that I’d like to decorate with embroidery to make them look a bit like tooled leather. The only stitches I’ve practiced so far are chain stitch, lazy daisies and bullion bar roses, but I’d really like some more ideas or book recommendations!

That should be beautiful. I’m not an embroiderer but I did come across this stitchionary from DMC:

Also this book which is nicely reviewed:
https://www.amazon.com/Mary-Thomass-Dictionary-Embroidery-Stitches/dp/1570761183

Perhaps someone with more experience can make some recommendations?

That’s a good start, salmonmac, thanks! Saw some things on the DMC site I’d like to buy for my project, anyway! I’ll see if the second book is available on Amazon uk later, looks like it has some nice patterns.
