That idle hands make for idle minds is an old-fashioned notion, but such a sentiment is at the root of Tasha Tudor's philosophy and lifestyle. A sequel to Tasha Tudor's Garden
and not to be construed as a traditional how-to, her latest book follows the children's book illustrator in and outside her farmhouse, Corgi Cottage, as we follow and watch her daily activities through the text of Tovah Martin and the camera lens of Richard Brown. Her crafts routines are enough to make a lesser human lie down and rest for a year; they include hand-dying wool from a friend's sheep, working on a patchwork quilt that will be many years in the finishing, harvesting eggs from the Rhode Island reds, and whipping up cookies, cakes, and pies. An introduction to the joys of self-sufficiency. Barbara Jacobs
