When you Need a Little Sewing Break

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.

  1. You are so welcome, Nina. Isn't that a fun website. He's published two books, one of bookmarks and one of recipes, both a collection that he's found in old books. And if you love old books, he usually offers a Friday giveaway. I've never one but I hope to!
