Willow casts her crafting style all around the house and beyond, making things you will want to keep for yourself, or reluctantly give away as presents. The first chapter, “To Decorate†, includes floral napkin rings, seasonal wreaths, Christmas decorations, and vintage fabric bunting. “To Hang†shows how to fill printers’ trays with your own treasures, make pictures from buttons, and create your own message board with fabulous ribbons. “To Nest†includes ideas for grainsack pillows, block print napkins, and heart-shaped lavender bags. In “To Wear†, there are fabric-twisted bracelets, silk-trimmed straw hats, and simple linen aprons. “To Use†is a visual feast of candles made in vintage teacups, fabric-covered books, bath salts infused with lavender, and coat hangers decoupaged with fabric scraps. Having lived in France, Willow is greatly inspired by their vintage textiles, as well as their way of making life's necessities, such as a straw hat or bicycle basket, so effortlessly decorative. None of her ideas are difficult to make or demand serious sewing or crafting skills. The only requirements needed are patience, and the desire to find those raw materials that work their magic.
William Coperthwaite is a teacher, builder, designer, and writer who for many years hasexplored the possibilities of true simplicity on a homestead on the north coast of Maine. In the spirit of Henry David Thoreau, Emily Dickinson, and Helen and Scott Nearing, Coperthwaite has fashioned a livelihood of integrity and completeness-buying almost nothing, providing for his own needs, and serving as a guide and companion to hundreds of apprentices drawn to his unique way of being. A Handmade Life carries Coperthwaite's ongoing experiments with hand tools, hand-grown and gathered food, and handmade shelter, clothing, and furnishings out into the world to challenge and inspire. His writing is both philosophical and practical, exploring themes of beauty, work, education, and design while giving instruction on the hand-crafting of the necessities of life. Richly illustrated with luminous color photographs by Peter Forbes, the book is a moving and inspirational testament to a new practice of old ways of life.
In Inspire: The Art of Living with Nature, Willow combines these passions and shows how to use both flower-shop purchases, beachcombing bounty, home-grown harvests and hedgerow finds foraged on countryside walks to decorate your home. Divided into five chapters on Woodland, Flora, Fauna, Edibles, and Beach, here are more than 50 ideas ranging from hellebores displayed in test tubes to a wreath made from hydrangeas, spring narcissi planted in wooden wine boxes, a tabletop display incorporating gilded apples and pears, displays of pebbles, coral, and shells, sea urchins fashioned into napkin rings, hollowed-out red cabbages used as vases, a colorful posy of chilies, and a stylish wall display of antlers and feathers.
Sewing machines are speedier--but, increasingly, quilters are discovering that working by hand provides even more pleasure and superior results. And world-renowned quilt maker, teacher, author, and show judge Nancy Brenan Daniel has created an inspiring guide just for them, with ideas for 18 varied and beautiful hand-sewn quilts. Her detailed instructions cover it all, from making the blocks and stitching them together to adding borders and binding. Many of the designs come straight from Nancy’s own antique collection, and they’re pieced, appliquéd, and even stenciled. Several traditional and much loved patterns--including the Courthouse Log Cabin, Shoo-fly, Prickly Pear, and Windblown Daisy--are accompanied by a contemporary appliqué quilt and a small hand-embroidered wall hanging.
