More in the kitchen

A coffee grinder.

Daisy was always busy making cream, butter, jams and bottling fruit, preserving what she could for the off-season. Daisy would make or mend cloths on the sewing machine and then cook what was needed for a family hungry after a full day's work. There was no timer on the wood-burning stove and certainly no microwave to speed up the cooking. Baking bread was a daily necessity. It would take anything up to three hours to prepare a roast dinner for the table. When Daisy wasn't busy in the kitchen, she was boiling clothes in the copper so her family had clean sheets and underwear.
