A finish!! Jane Austen on the Weather, this is from The Sampler Girl’s Companion Booklet #4. I stitched this on light sand Belfast Linen using Carrie’s Creation Silks. I think these threads are beautiful, and by the way, it is dreadful hot here today!
This is the perfect kickoff for the Everything Austen Challenge! For the challenge you choose 6 Austen ‘projects’ you would like to complete by January 1, 2010. The challenge is mainly about reading and viewing….but I plan to include crafty things in my list as well. Actually I didn’t include any viewing since I will probably rewatch everything available at least once by 1/1/2010 anyway.
For the challenge I plan 1. to get at least four things framed and hung on my….
…very pitiful Jane Austen Sampler ‘wall’…
2. 3. & 4. Read three Jane Austen-ish books….
and for 5. & 6. finish stitching two Jane Austen projects (at least).
I’m already planning to include the challenge ‘prize’ to my next Amazon order so I’m only joining for the Austen Fellowship of the challenge but what fun!
