The 1st one, on the picture above, is
Colour Confidence in Embroidery by Trish Burr.
I have 3 other books and a DVD from her and I really admire
her work and really like her method of teaching.
To me this particular one (above) is a seminar/workshop on color
in a book.
Mary from Needle N Thread wrote a
very nice review on it on her website in case you like to
The 2nd book is the one below,
Ma Vraie Nature by Sylvie Blondeau.
Very cute and simple embroidery, it is in French however
you don't really need to know French in order to trace and stitch
the patterns in it ;-).
I happen to have in my stash one of her other books,
very cute as well but is mostly on applique for children.
