Each of the 40 projects reflects Jane Brocket's “gentle” approach, which values the creative process as much as the finished object.

Jane Brocket is the author of five books, including the bestselling The Gentle Art of Quilt-Making and The Gentle Art of Knitting. She originally created her blog, yarnstorm.blogs.com, to write about knitting, but the contents soon expanded to include many more of life's small pleasures, such as baking, quilting, sewing, gardening, books, and films.
