Jane Austen Knits

“The Very first moment I beheld him, my heart was irrevocably gone.” --Jane Austen~ Love and Friendship~

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.” ― Jane Austen

“A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.” Jane Austen~ Pride and Prejudice

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” Jane Austen ~Pride and Prejudice

A Love For Vintage

Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that - one stitch at a time taken patiently and the pattern will come out all right like the embroidery. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

I love this beautiful assortments of crochet,
 embroidery, applique, and quilting.
I clipped this page  from an old magazine
 years ago ~I think Country Home.
I am sharing some of my pretty vintage linen,
lace, thread and ribbon for Pink Saturday.
A page from a beautiful Needlecraft book
Traditional Country Needlecraft.
Embroidery threads come in the loveliest  colors.
I love collecting vintage pearl buttons
and satin ribbon. They look so good
in the silver tray my daughter gave me.
A pretty doily
 I'm  joining Beverly for Pink Saturday.
