Merry Birthday, Jane Austen // Just Cross Stitch Magazine Christmas Ornament issue 2018


I was delighted when asked by Just Cross Stitch to contribute a design to this year's Christmas Ornament issue. I knew straight away that I wanted it to be Jane Austen themed yet linking her to Christmas is never easy as it wasn't as big a holiday then as it is for us now. So connecting Miss Austen was tricky yet since she had a December birthday, that seemed kismet. 

I hope you enjoy stitching MERRY BIRTHDAY, JANE AUSTEN and perchnce it is a design that lasts the whole year over, not just in December. Accompanying every designer's piece is a favorite recipe and a festive memory - I included the recipe for CHOCOLATE CHIP PIE and wrote about New Year's Eve 1999 before the new century dawned.

You can locate this issue in your local bookstore or needlework shop!


I have added a clip about this on The Sampler Girl youtube channel if you wish to have a view :

Merry stitching!
