Happy 242nd Birthday, Jane Austen! SALE! FREE CHART!

I began designing patterns inspired by Miss Jane Austen in 2009 - the premier one was Northanger Abbey. This being one of my least favorite of her novels, Northanger Abbey is chock full of wonderful passages like the one that is graced on the sampler. It reads: Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love.

This pattern is ONE DOLLAR today only! All other Jane Austen-inspired patterns are specially SALE discounted in commemoration of Jane Austen's 242nd birthday. If you are a Janeite like myself, then you appreciate this special day when such a gifted author was born.

I hope you find a dear way to celebrate it somehow - by reading one of her books, watching one of the many wonderful Austen movies, or putting in some regency stitching in these designs.

A few years back, I did a design entitled CAKE FOR JANE AUSTEN which is no longer available. Today it's up here on the Blog as a FREE CHART for you - enjoy! Colors are your decision - share on Instagram with hashtag thesamplergirl and I'll be sure to see your creation.
