Jane Austen Stitch Along

Hi! Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post! Y'all made my day!

 I don't think I have ever posted on my blog how much I LOVE Jane Austen! ;o) Well I do and I am a major Janeite! I re~read her books every year, I love the movies (well most of them) they have made from her books, I have read several of the biographies that have been written on her life. Our family has a tea party on her birthday every year. I even have a window sticker on my van that says "My other ride is a barouche"! ;o) So, now y'all know how crazy I truly am!! ;o) Well, I have been enjoying being a part of the CCN's cottage stitch along that I thought it would be fun to have a Jane Austen one. I am planning on pulling my In the Garden with Jane Austen out of the UFO pile and ripping out some colours that I do not care for and stitching on it. I am going to be working on my Jane piece of Fridays while either watching one of the adaptations or listening to an audio version of one of her books. I thought we could post progress on our blogs each week. There are so many great Jane pieces over at Sampler Girl.
Anyone want to join me? I am going to start this Friday. I will show before and after pictures. Let me know if you want to join me! ;o)

I love Jane Austen and have several Sampler Girl patterns! I've only made two so far (one being a bookmark, does that count?) - I'd do a stitch-along with you! So glad to know I'm not the only stitching Janeite out here!

I wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Liebster Award because I love your blog.
Thanks for all the loveliness!
