 Please Note:  Once mistakes are found on charts, the appropriate corrections are made on future printings.    Every effort is made to avoid mistakes, but they do happen.  I apologize for any inconvenience.
Chart TitleCorrection
Shores of Hawk Run Hollow, Block 1 The correct DMC equivalent for Yellow Ochre Dark #316 is 830, not 860.
Shores of Hawk Run Hollow, Block 2 The correct DMC equivalent for Marigold Light #471 is 745, not 3078.
Chincoteague The star symbol is the color White in DMC (not 3821).
Autumn of Hawk Run Hollow Block #6: The nine acorns should have the double diamond symbol and be stitched in 315 NPS/831 DMC, Yellow Ochre, Dark
Island Sisters

The column headers on the Floss List of Island Sisters are reversed:  The column listed as NPS should read DMC  (and DMC should read NPS). Also, NPS 844's equivalent in DMC is #3821 (not 8822)


The Kernel


The model was stitched on 32 count Relic using 2 strands of Needlepoint Silk. Two skeins of  Canary Yellow (973 DMC/553 NPS) are needed.
Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow, Block 9

The centers of the flowers on the Christmas tree are over-one stitches.  And compensating over-one stitches are used surrounding them. The hourglass symbol calls for  636 (NPI) and 3777 (DMC) Clove Dark.

Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow, Block 7In the Floss List, the X symbol for 993/310 Black should be a large solid square symbol.
Lady's GardenThere is a symbol missing from the floss list.  Underneath the weird "C" should be a "-" (dash) symbol.  The dash symbol goes with Drab Green, Light. The "hourglass" symbol goes with Chocolate Brown.  The "dot" goes with Drab Green, Vy. Lt., the "%" symbol goes with Honeysuckle, Dk., the large "dot" goes with Flame Red, Dk., the "upside down U" goes with Flame Red, Med., and the "circle" goes with Flame Red, Lt.



















The floss list is completely wrong.  It should be:

(I'm going to describe the symbol after each color, as I understand the symbols are not translating well to all computers.  It must be a font thing.)

The GIRLS - Elizabeth, Mary Margaret, Molly and Suzannah I have listed on each chart that 1/8 yard of fabric will be needed to stitch two girls.  This is wrong.  A 1/4 yard of fabric will be needed to stitch two girls.  I apologize for this big mistake.
