I Need Your Help! - Edited


(Photo totally unrelated!)

I need your help please.  In Nashville at the Market in late February/early March, I'll be releasing a new design - the first in a series of LARGE samplers.  Beth is stitching it now and the theme is Autumn.

Spring, Summer and Winter will follow later this year and next year.

It's not a Hawk Run Hollow design, though it is similar in size, and has a similar flavor (sort of).

This series needs a name.  That's where YOU come in!

Beth and I have been texting each other back and forth with tons of ideas, but neither of us have come up with the perfect name yet.

Ideas Beth and I have dreamed up include:  Autumn in the Valley of Whispering Willows (too long!), Winding River Valley (but there's no river - yet!), Autumn in Whispering Winds (maybe?),  Willow Lark Valley, Snake and Willow Valley, Kindred Valley, and more!

Can you do better?

If you come up with the name selected, I will be sure you get a free copy of the chart.

Edited to add:  Please think less of what Beth and I thought of and more of "Hawk Run Hollow".  An old and interesting town name, it doesn't have to be a Valley, it doesn't have to have the word Willows....be original!!

Beth and I both thank you!!

Maybe a sneak peek could help with some names or letting us know,of some motifs.

Autumn in Serenity Valley since stitching is so serene???

Judy said...

This is fun. My throw in is "Seasons of Willow Valley" as it seems willow and valley are in each of the suggestions.

Good luck choosing the name.

Jessica said...

How about Willow Vale? I live in Willow Vale (Mittagong) AUSTRALIA!!!

Short, snappy & Vale means 'a Valley' such as 'in the valley of love & delight' ...
Would be great if you used my idea.

Rhythm of the Seasons or The Heart's Seasons. Good luck Kathy. Naming is harder then designing...Don't you agree?:)

Rita said...

Autumn (Winter, Spring, Summer) in Willow Valley.

Seasons should be mentioned in a series of this kind but also the names should not be too long, in my opinion.

I can't wait for the unveiling!

Simple Pleasure said...

Here goes...SEASONS IN THE WILLOWS! I can't wait to see the design.
Busy Hands...Happy Heart

Ok, I am in an old English mood. Waltham on the Wolds, The Willows of Woodborough or The Willows of Warwickshire. I also like Barton on the Heath or Beech Hill Basin.

Why not just make it simple- autumn in hawk run valley, spring...etc . We have a tendency to overthink!

Olde Plymouth Towne. Sounds old and charming.

Good Luck picking a name for this series that talks to you.

I lived in a crossroad town here in North Carolina for about a year. Silk Hope, NC. So the name I suggest is Silk Hope Slip.
