Needlework: My “McMansions” Project – Part 8

Happy Monday, Everyone! I had a bit of a time to squeeze in a few more stitches on The Sampler Gameboard:

I have a bit of a “bird’s nest” on this house — as I made a boo boo. So, I am in the process of un-stitchimg to rectify the situation:

Also, I have an update on “The Chronicles of Pemberley”. Some of you have asked me last week if I liked the book. I didn’t know the answer back then because I hadn’t read the book. I started on the book over the weekend, and found it to be a very delightful read. So far I am into about 80 pages — my summary of the pleasantly executed plot is that the happy ending of “Pride and Prejudice” just got happier. Chronicles mainly picks up from after the marriages of Jane and Elizabeth, and focuses on their lives thereafter. The usual suspects of the original Pride and Prejudice are woven into the story with mastery, with the addition of new characters. I have also enjoyed the snippets of life for the gentry class prior to pre-industrialization in Great Britain.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your week got off a stupendous start!

  1. Hi Wendy,
    Your game board is coming along so nicely! I just don’t know how you do all that you do. Loved your table pics for the baby party. Did you make all the food, too?!

  2. Hi Wendy,
    McMansions is really coming together nicely :0)
    I have written down the Pemberley Chronicles on my “look for” book list. I’m glad you got a chance to read some of it.
    Blessings…

  3. Hi Wendy!

    Guess what? I am one of the biggest JA-fans in the world and when I saw on your blog that there is a follow-up story on P&P I just had to find out if I could buy it over here… yes I can but only in English and not in Dutch… boohooooo…..
    Love your work, give your babe a kiss!

    hugs for you from the Netherlands
