Once in a while it's good to step away from the sewing machine. One of the things that I like to do is to check out blogs that are followed by bloggers whom I follow. Of course many of these are sewing and quilting related. But I found a great one at the blog Joy for Grace. It's called Forgotten Bookmarks. It's maintained by a couple who own a used book store. They frequently find items in old books such as recipes, letters or pictures and they post about them. I think it's interesting to see the trail we leave behind. They give a truer glimpse into the past than history books can. So, when you need to change your focus for a few minutes or so, check it out! And, thanks, Nancy for a great lead.
