A mini quilting break

Right about now, I would be taking a mini and short quilting break because I won’t have my precious sewing machine with me.  Instead, I am revisiting some ongoing projects:

1.  Daughters of Longbourn


2.  Mary Wigham


3.  Miss Baby’s Bienvenue Birth Sampler

Hope to have some progress pictures for you soon.  Have a great week ahead!

“Jane’s Fame” by Claire Harman is a great read if you are interested in an analysis of Jane Austen’s work…


I stumbled upon “Following Jane” – Discovery of Jane Austen from a guy’s point of view:

Going back to my sampler, this is what I am striving for:


Thanks for stopping by.  I wish you lovely day! :)
