I'm guessing by now you've seen my sister's new Hawk Run Hollow Design - A Year at Hawk Run Hollow. Marty did a fantastic job with this piece!! It's the ninth Hawk Run Hollow design. Who would have thought?!! I have so many memories of designing the Hawk Run Hollow pieces I did. I remember how some blocks came so easily and some were such a struggle. I remember trying so hard to get the perspective right in the mill block on the Villages. I never quite got it right, but it ended up looking kind of "folk-y" so it was ok. I remember cringing in doubt and fear when I introduced the first "people" with the carolers in Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. I even remember riding in Anne Brown's (The Goode Huswife) car while we went antiquing and we were brain storming names of towns after I designed the first piece - Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. That was quite a few years ago!
So, Marty had a great idea - she thought we should design the 10th Hawk Run Hollow piece together. I LOVE it!!!
And, we need your help! We need a theme! After Houses, Village, Shores, Christmas, Autumn, Spring, Farms, Map and Year, what could possibly be left?? (And yes, I came up with all of those from memory and didn't have to go look at Marty's website!)
Send us your ideas!! Here's your chance to have your vision designed! Email your ideas to Marty (CHSamplings@gmail.com) and to me (KathyBarrick@gmail.com). If your idea is chosen, you'll get a free copy of the chart and you'll be given credit on the chart. Yep, your name in print!
I have faith in you. I KNOW you can come up with some super creative ideas...ideas that will make us think "of course!!" or ideas that will make us say "oh I can't wait to work on that!!"
Thank you all!
