Readers may initially scoff "No way" at the suggestion that anything handmade (except baked goods) can be crafted in one hour.
Lyons, author of Mothers and Daughters at Home (2000), seems to delight in proving the wrongness of our thoughts as she unveils this delightful and practical paean to friendship.
A handful of projects --including paperweights, seed packets, and a painted teapot--fits the 60-minute schedule, as will a variety of home-fashioned items that fall into one of four other timely categories: half a day, all day, over the weekend, and as long as it takes.
Most of the 40 to-dos emulate a naive or outside artist's design; simple and to the point, each is embellished with variations and scattered sidebars on forming different clubs (book, knitting, garden) and on different personal friendships.
No need, really, to be master of any one or several techniques. Barbara Jacobs
