Ribbon Roses on the Jane Austen Centre Magazine

I'm so excited. Last summer I did an article for Craft Critique on wire-edge ribbon and how to make a rose. The Jane Austen Centre in England asked to post the directions to the ribbon rose with my photos on their online magazine. It is in the Hands on Regency section where you can find a variety of crafts from soap to clothing. The rose instructions are part of an article to help adorn a simple pair of shoes into a 19th century inspired fashion. You can find the magazine article here. You can check out the critique on wire-edge ribbon in the original one at Craft Critique.

Now, I feel inspired to go read Emma. I have it on my bookshelf. I received it as a gift from my mother-in-law soon after my daughter, Emma, was born. It has been so long since I've sat down and read Jane Austen's books and I've never read this one.

You will like reaing "Emma." But, it has also been made into movies a couple of times: one with Kate Beckinsale and one with Gwyneth Paltrow. Both are good. Also, the film "Clueless" with Alicia Silverstone and Brittany Murphy, was based on "Emma." It's lots of fun! All might be fun to watch with your daughter. See you at the next CCC Meetup!
