WE have a nice collection of wonderful designs by Kathy Barrick of Carriage House and by Hello from Liz Matthews.(Those are grouped together at the bottom of this page. Clicking the link will take you right to them.)
Everything is full of deep browns, cinnamons, rusts, pretty amber-golds, dusty moss and bold forest greens.
Of special note, however are the Hawk Hollow Run pieces. A Village and Town of houses and businesses... these can be broken down into each of their individual squares, or stitched as the entire piece. Stunning!
A Few New Offerings from Kathy Barrick
Autumn Pin Drum from Kathy Barrick
Stitch this delightful little piece - I love that stuffed pumpkin on the top! Stitched on Weeks Dye Works 36ct Beige linen with Weeks and DMC flosses... the entire thing is only 4 x 9 when flat.
Roll it into the drum shape and top it Lady Dot's hand-dyed velveteen... and make that stuffed pumpkin out of more velveteen. Then, cover your seams with baby rik-rak and you'll be good to go.
Great colors, Kathy has three different 'views' on her cover - it looks totally different from all the angles too!
More Feed Sacks
Here come more fun designs that are meant to finish into little 'sacks' to display or use! Joining the Reindeer, Sheep, Chicken and Halloween Feed sacks we already have, these are offered as separate charts. Stitched on Picture This Plus' 32ct Faun hand-dyed linen, with regular DMC floss, they finish approx 8 x 9. They would be SUPER CUTE finished as directed (even the finisher's contact info is on here for you!) and filled with sand or something and used as a door stop.
What a fun and unexpected way to display your needlework! You could also make them into a little pillowcase to go over a microwaveable sack of rice or corn (or whatever you like inside yours) to use as a warming sack for cold hands and feet! A fun collection of designs so far.
Several New Arrivals from Kathy Barrick
Jack's UrnBy Kathy Barrick
This one is fun because of the cool background, that bold urn and then that whole house scene inside the pumpkin!
Lots of neat design elements in this one, it is stitched on 36ct Legacy Linen by Picture This Plus, and finishes about 8 x 8.
Bringing Christmas and Christmas Joy Ride
A fun set of dashingly busy designs for Christmas! Just the cutest, it feels like the sleds are going to fly off the pictures!
Both presented in their own chart, they finish about 7-1/2 x 8 on 32ct, and are coded for DMC or silks. Timeless!
Kathy Barrick's New Stockings!
DO NOT use these for Christmas decorations... rather... make them and hang them on doors or on skinny little strange walls or tuck them into narrow nook areas. Pick an cool area that is as quirky as these are! They are neat pieces of artwork... don't hide them away till Christmas!
from Kathy Barrick
Esther is named after Esther-the-Sheep who lived out her life on Not Forgotten Farm - she belonged to Lori B - a friend of Kathy's.
This piece measures 146 x 221 and is shown on Picture This Plus's Doubloon hand-dyed linen.
from Kathy Barrick
What a fun piece to stitch for a famhouse kitchen! Measuring 300 x 251, this will finish approx 19 x 16 on 32ct.
Coded for silk or DMC, it has so many fun design elements. The two side panels, all the repetitive charting in the center, not to mention the useful gardening information! (I just don't know what growing zone it references... so if you care... check into that!) Presented as a chart, this is charming!
from Kathy Barrick
Black Heart is from 2013.
PA is a little larger - 115 vs the 100 of Black. Both very striking!
Halloween At Hawk Run Hollow
The 10th design in this fun series celebrating Hawk Run Hollow... Halloween is full of creepy charm! As with most of the others, it is broken down into smaller blocks of individual designs... skeletons and ghosts... lots of morbid stuff, there is even one square that is just a cute scarecrow in a pumpkin patch -- he just looks mad, but he's still cute!
Coded for 42 different shades of DMC, this is stitched on Picture This Plus's 40ct Legacy Linen and the whole thing will finish approx 18-1/2 x 14. Just in case you're collecting: Houses, Village, Shores, Christmas, Autumn, Farms, Spring, Map, Year and now Halloween at Hawk Run Hollow!
from Kathy Barrick
by Kathy Barrick
Wow... a reproduction from an antique needlepoint purse... this DOES look old! Choose a dark gunmetal-colored fabric, this is coded for silks or DMC floss -- 30 different colors!
On 32ct, it finishes approx 8 x 12. I think it would make a stunning pillow, besides being framed.
Halloween on the Farm
by Kathy Barrick
What a fun stack of farm animals... and WOW, what a fun stack of pumpkins too!!!!! Stitch everything as is -- it finishes approx 3 x 9 on 18/36 ct... or do an animal and pumpkin by themselves.
Or even fill a bowl with a dozen of the stitched pumpkins, and make them with some different shades of your threads!!!!!! Cute chart, just a last minute release before Halloween... it's really just Fall and I'd enjoy those pumpkins all year long!
Tonight is Halloween
from Kathy Barrick
Kathy Barrick has a trio of new designs... Tonight is Halloween is just one -- an is quite full of creepy personality... just like a strange friend! An organized grave yard with cute little owls, there are some cute verses on some of the stones. You could add other fun stuff -- like *I M Gone* or something to the others... add some opalescent to the ghosts, or make the Jacks eyes glass beads.
Presented as a chart, it finishes approx 8 x 15 on 32ct. Choose something mangy or distress it when you are finished... make it look like it got buried alive!
A Year at Hawk Run Hollow
Carriage House's ninth in the Hawk Run Hollow Series -- this joins Houses, Village, Shores, Christmas, Autumn, Farms, Spring and Map of HRH! This design is made up of 12 -- 92 x 92 stitch count blocks -- each a tribute to it's month of the year.
Charted for DMC or silks, you CAN split all of these up and make them into individual pillows to fill that big bowl of yours. We see this one as perkier -- like Spring at HRH... a little more colorful than some of the order offerings. Presented as a chart -- it's a gotta-have -- the blocks are charming!
Map of Hawk Run Hollow
Wow... What a show-stopper! Everyone is in love this with new piece by Marty Barrick. 260 x 247 Stitches in size, choose floss or silks to stitch this charming map of the imaginary Hawk Run Hollow Settlement.
The river, bridges, the town square, cemetary... the fields and even the compass star, the design is bold and the elements are charming! It's a 'gotta have' and would even make a really neat couch pillow!!! Offered as the chart.
Spring at Hawk Run Hollow
A new piece to join the other 6 in the Hawk Run Hollow series by Carriage House, this one is full of color and Springtime 'busy-ness' ... and doesn't feature as many houses and buildings as some of the other designs have had. *Behold the winter is past... the fig tree puts forth its figs... Arise my love, my fair one, and come away!* A condensed version of the verse, this is a playful rendition of Springtime and all the neat things that happen when the weather turns warmer and everything wakes up after winter.
A massive stitch count of 185 x 614 delivers a finished size of 10 x 34 on 36ct!!! Each of the 12 individual blocks are presented on an individual page for ease in stitching. Coded for DMC floss or Needlepoint Inc silks, each block measures 95 x 95 stitches and CAN stand alone if you wish! I love the clipper ship and the girls who have lost their Sunday hats!
Very pretty, the chart includes a master layout chart as well, so counting that border and spacing your blocks is an accurate breeze! Model is stitched on 40ct Weeks Dye Works Straw Linen. We carry 40, 35 and 30ct in Straw... so you have OPTIONS!!!!!
The Farms of Hawk Run Hollow
We have another in the Hawk Run Hollow series! Carriage House's Kathy retired, but was dragged back into business by sister, Marty! Ms Marty designed most of this piece -- but tied Kathy to a chair till she finished her squares! The result is equally as charming as the rest of our Hawk Run Hollow pieces!
Notice the days of the week squares... something for everyday... Barn Raising on Monday, Livestock Auction on Tues, Double Yolk Wed, Sheep Shearing on Thurs, Friday Fishing, and Saturday's Dance! Finishing approx 9 x 28 on 40ct, this is coded for silks or DMC floss. Stitch the entire thing, or pick your favorite days... Marty made Kathy finish her task... you can too!
Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow
Carriage House's 5th set of scenes all around the village of Hawk Run Hollow is here! Celebrating Autumn, it covers the harvest season, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. Joining Houses, Village, Shores and Christmas... Kathy says this is her last HRH set. We stood together in her booth at Market... all 5 of them were there on display, just stunning!
Just like all the rest, this piece features 12 squares of designs, that can be stitched individually or together. Every single panel is neat... it's kind of fun to look at the set of patterns and TRY top choose your favorites! Autumn is stitched in a different configuration than the rest, so linen has been ordered.
Charted for silks or DMC floss... 40ct Sand Dune Linen cut is also available. Offered as the chart, all other HRH charts are still available!
Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow
Carriage House has released her next Hawk Run Hollow piece, joining Village, Houses and Shores of HRH! A stunning 12-part piece... just like the other three... each section can stand alone and is a lovely piece all by itself! EVERY square in this design is neat... lots of bold color and subject... the houses, trees, carolers, skating pond, singing cardinals and church scene are all endearing! LOTS of stitching in this, it finishes approx 17 x 23 on 32ct!
Charted for DMC flosses or Needlepoint Silks, the piece uses 119 colors!!! (So to save yourself approx $360... choose the floss!) I'm trying to choose my favorite section, and i *think* it's the skating pond... but I like those singing birds... ! Offered as a chart... linen and threads separately.
The Shores of Hawk Run Hollow
A third companion to the Village and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow, this is another exquisite piece by Kathy Barrick. 12 Blocks of nautical flavor... you can stitch them all together, or choose a block or two that is a favorite. Every block is a little work of art by itself! Mermaids, fish, anchors, tall ships, and that awesome seaside house, there is always something new to discover when you look at this piece!
Breathtaking stitched on any fabric you choose, this finishes approx 15 x 20-1/2 on 40ct or 14 x 18-1/2 on 36ct Vintage Autumn Gold by Lakeside Linens. Stitched in either DMC floss or Needlepoint Inc silks, it uses 32 colors - so many lovely shades of blues and teals, crisp whites, weathered reds and grays... I absolutely LOVE it! Offered as a chart, we have two different Lakeside linen counts available... and many other fabric options, as well, along with the silks or flosses!
The Village of Hawk Run Hollow
The sequel to Carriage House's Houses of Hawk Run Hollow... this is a MUST HAVE! "Over the river on a hill lieth a village sweet and still. All around it the forest and the trees shiver and whisper in the breeze. Over it sailing shadows go of soaring hawk and screaming crow. And mountain grasses low and sweet grow in the middle of every street." A set of 8 houses, there is a school, church, town hall, blacksmith, gristmill, the inn, parks, and even the graveyard!!! Such a neat, colonial/antique flavor, this is just stunning. Stitch count for this incredible piece is a whopping 278 x 371, which means that on 32ct, this will finish approx 17 x 23!
You can stitch the entire village, or just choose a few of your favorites and arrange them however you want... lots of neat choices here. The chart includes one huge master sheet of all for placement, with each individual block on a single, separate sheet of paper, so you can carry just the chart you're working on, and leave the rest safely tucked away till you need them.
Containing 56 luscious colors of Needlepoint Silks, this is converted to DMC floss as well, and will require a total of 62 skeins of thread. Bricks and bronzes, greens of every shade, golden mustards and cinnamon browns, weathered blues, the list just goes on and on! So... check into your DMC stash, or treat yourself to the silks!!! (We have them all ready for you!) Note: The 40ct linen specified in this piece will most likely be unavailable for several months. Study the chart a bit to decide if there is another you'd like to use.
The Houses of Hawk Run Hollow
This is a commanding design that features 12 smaller design panels that can be worked individually or together, in any number of shapes and formats. Each block measures approx 5 inches square on 36ct linen, making this entire piece a whopping 20-1/2 x 15- 1/2 on 36ct linen, that is almost all solid stitching. Luscious colors of russets, greens, buttermilks, teals, bricks, and cinnamons, this is charted for DMC or Silk. (Silk set contains 59 skeins!)
I love houses... so think this is charming. However, in reading the very traditional sampler-themed words... I find that I personally would change them to read something much more lighthearted, like 'the road to a friend's house is never long!!!' The piece deals with 'Remembering Me' but then mentions rotting bones, etc, etc....! Anyway, it is truly a lovely piece... full of cool houses and other sampler motifs, even though it is on the high end price-wise!
