My goal was to make my sampler resemble venues used for the A&E 1995 Pride & Prejudice mini-series with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth - it's my favorite of the many versions made of this wonderful novel. I searched out the filming sites online and other photos so you can see my inspiration for each part of the sampler. It was hard to get the colors right in my photos. I adjusted some of them - the sampler was stitched on cream 36-ct Edinborough linen even though it appears grayish in some photos. Without further ado....here it is!
First off a photo of the completed sampler:
Longbourn, home of the Bennets:
Netherfield Hall - the country home Mr. Bingley rents and where he starts his romance with Jane Bennet, and where Lizzy meets Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy:
What a military camp back in the Georgian era looked like -
And our P&P British Regiment camped at Meryton...with the infamous Mr. Wickham:
Here we are at Rosings Park where Darcy's aunt and cousin live:
And where the Bennets' cousin Mr. Collins has his parish church with his new wife Charlotte.
Charlotte and her Mr. Collins. Mr Collins' hobby was bee-keeping.
We have the incredible Pemberley, ancestral home of the Darcy family.
And finally Mr. Darcy and Lizzy, living happily ever after!
I'm so thrilled to get this project off my UFO list! Thanks for visiting friends and readers!
