Houses of Hawk Run Hollow finis

Houses of Hawk Run Hollow - design by Carriage House Samplings
32 count Pearled Barley from Lakeside Linens
Recommended NPI - one over two

At 9:00pm last night I had just put in the last letter and only had the house to go and I said, what the heck, I might as well finish the bugger. :-) It only took a little while and she was done! I did make a few changes from the chart, I changed the name and date, House #9 is a different color and there are a few minor changes where the NPI color as charted wasn't enough contrast to suit me so I made a few things lighter or darker. Now if I can just find the $$$ to get this framed along with it's companion Village of Hawk Run Hollow all would be well in my world. I have the linen ready to go for Shores but I will hold off starting that for a while. I need a little break.



I have updated my for sale blog. If you have any questions, please email me. I will ship anywhere, you just have to pay for the shipping. :-)



Have a great weekend!

A huge congratulations on finishing it, Margie! It looks fantastic. That is no small piece!! If you're going to wait a little before starting Shores, what is your next start! It will probably feel anti-climatic, won't it?
