If you want to try embroidery, Aimee Ray's book Doodle Stitching would be a fun place to start.  She covers a lot of basics to get you started; such as materials, tools and a simple stitch guide.  Many of her projects are geared toward embellishing garments, accessories and home accents. That said, the basics of embroidery and the motifs used in her projects will clearly translate into crazy quilting. Some people are fearful of tackling hand embroidery or what to do beyond basic seam treatment.  This book offers a few basic stitches and lots of inspiration for using them.  If you are new to stitchery, I think it would be a creative way to test the waters.
