Wow! You all are absolutely amazing!! The ideas you sent us were all wonderful and we considered each and every one. We're grateful for the time and effort you put into your ideas for the next Hawk Run Hollow.
We heard from lots of stitchers, including our model stitchers, from shop owners and even from our very creative sister Janet. Our three brothers had not a word to say!
Maybe it's the cooling temperatures and the caramel apples now at the local produce stand, but we're really inspired to design Halloween at Hawk Run Hollow as the 10th in the series!
The first person to suggest Halloween was Lydia Redeker. So she will win a free copy of the chart once it's completed, and she'll get her moment of fame and glory when her name is included in the chart packaging! We're very grateful Lydia!
And we have a second winner: Tawny Korty, of the shop Where Victoria's Angel Stitch in Clifton, NJ. Not only did she suggest Halloween, but she gave enough imaginative details for all twelve blocks!
Thank you for participating. As contest participant, Sharon Odom, wrote, "If I could, I would become a citizen of Hawk Run Hollow Hollow in a heartbeat." I felt that way when I worked on the barn dance and rolling hills of Farms and the flowers and fig tree in Spring. I'm not sure I'm going to want to be anywhere near Hawk Run Hollow at Halloween!
