What Katy Did at School


What's in this issue?

A Row of Hooks the Decorating article

Katy and Clover looked eagerly about. It was a small room, but the sun shone in cheerfully at the window. There was a maple bedstead and table, a couple of chairs, and a row of hooks; that was all. From this simple cue in What Katy Did at School, this installment of Storybook Decorating explores conveniences and aesthetic pleasures associated with hooks.



The Same Pattern the Hearth article

The Hearth features a crochet pattern for Johnnie's Ribbed Crochet Liners as well as a recipe for Election Cake.



J'aime beaucoup les oiseaux the Kitchen article

Because autumn is the indisputable season of the roasted bird, we thought it a good time to celebrate the tradition of the "beef bird," a swirl of meat stuffed with a wonderful filling. Featured recipes include: Roast Beef Birds, Fruit-stuffed Pork Birds, and Faux Partridges with Spinach Stuffing.



My Turn to Play the Music article

The Music Box presents an arrangement of "Green Rushes" by George Butterworth and Elspeth Young.



A Bowl Full Of Chrysanthemums the Garden article

Just as chrysanthemums held a special place in Victorian devotion to the language of flowers, so this installment of the Garden focuses on the history and virtues of this ancient flower from the east. Also featured are a recipe for Chrysanthemum Jumbles and Simply Perfect Pumpkin Butter.



Clean Clothes From The Wash the Workshop article

Simple instructions are provided for making a folding board.



The Gardens of Castle Threave the Writer's Garret article

Seymore Wainscott, Leornian Feldham, and their guide, Duhglas Cairn, spend a magical day touring the legendary Lytfolc Gardens of Castle Threave. "I have seen so many wonders [today]," wrote Seymore, "that it no longer seems there is anything here of the commonplace; nevertheless, notwithstanding the magnificence of all these things, my mind is ablaze with questions of how — not in terms of science or engineering, but in terms of the societies from which these things arise and continue, generation upon generation. As the day progressed, one question beat in my brain with mounting tympani: How has this society cooperated for so long, enlisting one generation after another in so great an enterprise?"
