about

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.

Jane Brocket is the creator of the gorgeously colorful blog www.yarnstorm.blogs.com, which has a huge international following. A Master of Wine and lapsed Ph.D. student, she lives with her husband and three children in Berkshire, England.
