On the Weather with Jane Austen

I had the best fun finishing this pillow keep.On the Weather With Jane Austen by Tanya Marie Anderson, The Sampler Girl. This is the first time I have actually sewed strips for the front so I only had to rip out one seam, once. I really need a basic sewing class.
Anyway after stuffing it I decided to use some special old, old, old, mother of pearl buttons.....why we are talking about elegant ladies here! LOL I found these in a seconds store and vintage. They are so smooth and so mother or pearl glow.
I am off now to bed; however, tomorrow will start the pink pink keeps in the same Companion Booklet as well as work to finish another pillow.
I got a cutting mat and rotary cutter today. Never used one in my life. So, maybe practice makes perfect...........I'm liking it alot.
Can't wait to start the pink pinkeeps. Pink is my favorite color. (did I mention that?) ;)
Off to bed now.


  1. Very Nicely done :o)
    Looks great!

  2. Very nice finish! I have OCR china too!

  3. Looks great!!! Stay cool, Jennifer :)


  4. ooh, what a lovely finish! Aren't Tanya's designs the sweetest?
    I'm more of a blue girl myself, although I just painted my bedroom pink, so I can definitely see the attraction. Can't wait to see your next project!

  5. I love this design! And you finished it off beautifully!

  6. Thanks for all the compliments!
    It was fun stitching this one.
