Austen Family Album - week 8


My next block for Barbara Brackman's weekly series
 
Eliza's Star
 
This week's article discusses Jane Austen's cousin Eliza.  It seems that Eliza led a lively and interesting life back in the early 1800s, including residence in multiple countries and two marriages.  I thought ladies were more sedate back in those days! 

 
I've gotten into the habit of looking forward to peaceful early Sunday mornings spent selecting fabrics for these weekly blocks.
