I thought I could resist Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow, but that picture Glenna took at In Stitches kept coming back to me and couldn't resist any longer. I'm not sure when I'll actually get around to stitching it - Maybe in the fall. I did work on Shores of Hawk Run today (I'll post a pic tomorrow). I'm really enjoying it. I thought I would mention that the dyeing of the Summer Khaki with Tan Rit Dye wasn't my idea. It was Tanya's from The Scarlett House. She dyed her fabric for her Harriet Burry Sampler the same way. It makes a great fabric color, so I want to thank Tanya and give her credit for such a great idea!
I also got a few of the new Shepherd's Bush kits (My Land, Lucky and Patriotic Scissor Fob). My favorite is "My Land." I love the fabric and threads. I really fell in love with it after seeing Coni's wip (scroll down). It's so pretty. I think it will make a great companion to my "Finch Song."
Shepherd's Bush Kit "My Land." Included in the kit are Various Silk threads and 30 ct. Parchment Linen by WDW.
Tomorrow, Matthew (my three year old) and I are going to head up to Amy's for lunch. I had originally planned to go on Saturday, but I found out that my son Jake, who is seven, is having his very first soccer game - ever. I couldn't miss it - he's so excited! I felt bad that I wasn't going to be able to make it to Amy's because 1. It's her birthday and 2. I promised her a cake! I told her I would make it up to her somehow and it worked out that we could meet up tomorrow. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for my drive up!
