Home-Making by J.R. Miller
Don’t let the title fool you. This is not just a book for women who keep home. Home-Making is an uncompromising vision statement for the domestic bliss and cultural dominion of the Christian family. The message of Home-Making is powerful: “Sisters, Brothers, Husbands, Wives — Home life is meant to be beautiful, ennobling, and victorious!” God intends for each person, from parent to child, to play a role in family life, the ultimate goal of which is the transformation of the individual, the home, and the society for the glory of God.

Such is the image of the “desperate housewife” that the modern media, portrays.

Grandmother's Hope Chest: Lucie's Snowflakes by Rebekah Wilson
In the second book of the Grandmother's Hope Chest series, Lucie is sick in bed with a miserable cold. What would normally be a long and boring day turns to delight when Grandmother brings a special treat to share with Lucie... which inadvertently turns into a sewing lesson too.
Lucie discovers the joy of Gingham Embroidery as she recreates a bread cloth Grandmother had stored in the hope chest. By making small "Snowflake Stitches" around all four edges of the cloth, a beautiful design is made. The Hemming Stitch is also a new stitch for Lucie to learn and this stitch allows Lucie to complete the bread cloth by hand. Recommended for ages 3 to 10.

Fine needlework and linens were stored away in every young girl's hope chest until she was wed and set up housekeeping in her own home. Grandmother's Hope Chest kits provide all you need to create keepsakes, using your own sewing skills. Lucie's Snowflakes kit contains red and white checked fabric, embroidery hoop, needle, and thread to decorate a handmade bread cover or tea cloth with Hem Stitch and Snowflake Stitch.

Each button in the jar holds a unique memory, some as far back as the Revolutionary War. Lucie learns to copy the jar lid design in her own counted cross stitch project, and your little girl can do the same. Hardcover gift book is a delight for creating a meaningful family tradition.
