Lydia Bennet goes to Brighton
PDF Cross Stitch Pattern Download
Oh naive Lydia! She is so headstrong and follows wrong impulses but her whimsy character and free spirit is a touch of grace to Austen's novel. We forget, I think, that Lydia is only 15 years old and filled with a mind of her own at that age. This design is for Lydia and her boldness as she sees Brighton as a haven of possibilities.
“In Lydia's imagination, a visit to Brighton comprised every possibility of earthly happiness. She saw, with the creative eye of fancy, the streets of that gay bathing place covered with officers. She saw herself the object of attention to tens and to scores of them at present unknown. ... She saw herself seated beneath a tent, tenderly flirting with at least six officers at once.”
-Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
