Stephanie of Stephanie's Written Word is hosting the Everything Austen II challenge – I missed the first one but can't resist signing up for this 2nd chance. Sign ups are open until 15th July and there are 6 months in which to complete your chosen challenges. I've really challenged myself – I've included two lots of viewing – I'm not good at viewing – I only view when I've got some hand sewing in my mitts and no kids sports to attend! I was going to include a stitching project – I still would like to include a stitching project but really – I have an incalculable amount of stitching projects on the go as it is! Here are my choices, in no particular order of preference -
1. Mansfield Park – book
2. The Jane Austen Book Club – dvd
3. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – book
4. Lost in Austen – dvd
I recall seeing part of a random episode of this when it was on the television – I was curious to see more. I think Catherine may manage to keep me company for some of this…there is 3 hours worth of viewing though so good for stitching along to!
5. Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters – book
6. Jane Austen's Sewing Box – book
I had a little dip into this when it arrived from Amazon – it looks like a great combination of Austen info, history and little sewing projects. I might combine no.6 with the stitching of a huswife but like I said above, I have lots of stitching on the go so I may not get around to it.
Hoping to find some time to visit the blogs of other participants to see what they're doing.
