Daughters of Longbourn: Part 2

Getting from this…

… to this took about two hours.   This is the other “ME” project (besides the Civil War Bride quilt) I am currently working on.  It was fun to add a few more stitches to my Jane Austen sampler.

I know it’s corny, but Pride & Prejudice is my all-time favorite fiction.  I read that book regularly.  I opened up my Windows Explorer the other day, and saw that my technical support guy (aka husband) has re-named my hard drive.  I thought it was pretty cute:

“Jane’s Fame” by Claire Harman is a great read if you are interested in an analysis of Jane Austen’s work…


I stumbled upon “Following Jane” – Discovery of Jane Austen from a guy’s point of view:

Going back to my sampler, this is what I am striving for:


Thanks for stopping by.  I wish you lovely day! :)

  1. I’m a big Pride and Prejudice fan also. My alltime favorite book. Another book that ‘s interesting. 101 Things You Didn’t Know About Jane Austen by Patrice Hannon. It was pretty good if you want more biographical history on her.
    Your crossstitch is looking great!

  2. That is cute about renaming your hard drive. :-)

    I read P&P for the first time a couple of years ago and want to reread it some time.

    I don’t know when I will ever get back to my cross stitch. I don’t even know where it is right now — in an unpacked box some where!

  3. Now you have me hankering over cross-stitching. I used to do a lot of it, but set it aside in favor of quilting. I love it, but it takes so long! And earlier this year I re-read all of Austen’s books. Love them all, but Persuasion is my favorite. Go figure.

  4. Don’t hate me, I’m very much not an Austin fan. There is not one character I do not want to pick up and shake.
    But to make matters worse, her house is only 20 minutes away from mine…..
