Everything Austen Challenge update

I am loving this challenge!! The challenge is that I must complete 6 items related to Jane Austen. They can be anything you like. I found this challenge on Stephanies Written Word blog. My list looks like this:

1) Read Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict - on my night stand
2) Stitch "The Daughters of Longbourn" by the Stitching Parlor - finished page 1 of 4
3) Re-Read Pride and Prejudice On chapter 43
4) Watch the movie Lost in Austen - COMPLETED!!!!!
5) Read: Mr. Darcy's Diary by Amanda Grange - just picked up at Borders Books
6) Read: Northanger Abbey - on my bookshelf

I have until December 31st to complete this challenge. As you can see from my project uptop that the colors are just popping off this fabric.

Today, Mark was gone so I decided to pop in the DVD player Persuasion and then Pride and Prejudice, the Colin Firth version. I spent the afternoon stitching on Cherokee Child while watching Jane Austen. It was a very nice afternoon.
