Jane Brocket delights in domesticity. Lively, curious, and creative, she takes inspiration from her surroundings, from art, literature, and nature, and expresses her passion through the gentle arts of needlework, cooking, gardening, and homemaking--and now through her writing. In The Gentle Art of Domesticity Brocket celebrates everything that is, and can be, wonderful about home life. This gorgeous and unusual book, full of whimsy, warmth, and a wealth of stunning photographs, helps us to see domesticity with new eyes. Whether she's knitting a tea cozy or baking jam tarts, crocheting a blanket or sewing an apron, Brocket fills her home with beauty, color, and fun. She transforms day-to-day domesticity into a realm of possibilities, both practical and imaginative--and encourages us to do the same in our own lives. Rather than categorize readers as quilters or embroiderers, bakers or gardeners, Brocket embraces the idea that they may be all of these, and more. The key to practicing any of the domestic arts, she says, is to recognize the value of homemaking, overlooked skills, and ordinary things. This book's glorious synthesis of style, DIY projects, and philosophical musings inspires us not only to emulate Brocket's handmade creations but also to share her enjoyment of the simple pleasures of home.

5 of 5 Stars! '

A beautifully set out book full of fantastic photographs and information. Vibrant colours and smart layout make this book a pleasure to read and own. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves art and design. There is knitting, quilting crafting and baking. There is every area of domesticity one could want. I discovered this book by reading the author's blog Yarnstorm. The book is beautiful in every way. Jane Brocket is very creative.
