born to emigrant parents, so my mom taught me the gentle art of Domesticity. Wear it out , make it do, or do without. They went trough the depression, and 2 wars. She made patch winter blankets from old discarded wool suits. I still have one from the 40,s. She also made pretty crochet blankets and doilies to beautify her home. Well I am enjoying reading this book, I love the Gentle art of Quilting too. I learned of her books thru Jenny of ELEFANTZ blog. She does beautiful hand work and is having a year of Domesticity 2015.
These Ladies take me back in time, and I am loving it .
It now holds a place on my bookshelf with others I love to peruse on a rainy or snowy day. Reading it is like chatting with a likeminded friend who also enjoys cooking, baking, reading old books, and creating items for home and family.
This is not a "how to" book, if you want lots of recipes and patterns then you will be disappointed. However, if you want to "read to know you are not alone" and be inspired with beautiful pictures and the ponderings about creating a warm and cozy home... you will love it.
