It’s not polite to mention a lady’s age but well, Jane is getting ‘up there’, I wonder what she would think of her popularity today.
My favorite JA novel is Persuasion and I’ve stitched a few tributes using Little House Needleworks and Sampler Girl designs. I did go a bit beyond the book on LHN’s Captain’s Inn and changed it to The White Heart rather than The White Hart because I couldn’t figure out how to chart a stag alongside the ship which I love on that chart. The other charts I used were LHN’s Abigail Winslow and Liberty & Justice. The Sampler Girl chart is called Return to the Sea with Jane Austen.
I read about a special treat for Jane fans over at AustenProse (a great Jane blog by the way) check it out!
Enjoy something yummy with a free ebook in honor of Miss Austen today (cookie picture from wikipedia).
