What's HOT at L*K this week!

Just thought you might like to know what we're shipping this week. Actually, a random mix goes out the door every day, but here are the HOT items. As you might expect, it's a lot of NEW stuff, but a few other items are keeping us busy with more assembly.

1) Those crazy (snow)men are rolling out of here! The first 3 designs in our "6 Fat Men" Flip-it series are available. F110 Snowed In, F111 Snow House, and F112 Snow Friends are all chubby snowmen! The remaining 3 guys will be available near the end of October. FREE instructions and graphs for combining them on our website. Invite these men to your house...your husbands and boyfriends won't mind! Pic below shows the models in my LNS. Notice anything missing on the Snow House? Yes, I forgot to backstitch the windows in black and we digitally added it in the photo later - OOPS!

2) B34 When We Do Boxer Kit & B33 I Know God Boxer kits.  This is a new series of Inspirational Boxer kits which include fabric and embellishments. There's also a BONUS design (pin pillow, pincushion or fob) included in each. We tried a new vintage approach to these designs and blogged about it earlier this summer.  Check out the designs with their muted color palettes and the "new" vintage-look covers with some of our favorite things scattered about for props. Pic below is B34.

3) ABC Halloween kit (K46). This isn't new, but suddenly we can't keep the thread packs in stock. Thankfully the gals at Crescent Colours are fast shippers. It's one of my FAVORITE designs of all time - great spooky colors and funky Halloween motifs. It's a big project, but hey...Halloween comes every year! Kit includes pattern, lots of skeins of Crescent Colours and DMC for the small bits. You choose what fabric (color and count) you prefer!

4) Coming to Town - Santa '11 Snippet (S100). Of course, the yearly Santa is always popular. This year he's shaped differently. I don't know if anyone has noticed, but he is usually a square design and this year he's tall and rectangular. Santa has his own embellishment pack, too (S100E).

TODAY...I'm anxiously checking my mailbox for a fabric sample I ordered so I can start stitching a NEW Christmas kit. I just designed it this week and I can't wait to begin stitching!! I'm running a bit late, but sometimes life gets in the way. My Mom has been really sick this summer, and I'm so pleased to share that she is really improving - what a blessing!

Sneak peeks about the new Christmas kit SOON! HOHOHO!


  1. I'm patiently waiting for the 6 Fat Snow Men charts to arrive through my letterbox! I LOVE them and am going to be SAL-ing with my surrogate stitching sis :)

  2. I already have 3 fat men and downloaded the combination chart ready to go - can't wait for the others to join him and Santa is kitted up ready for stitching. The Inspirational range is lovely too. Keep up the good work :)

    Love and get well wishes to your Mom xx

  3. Going to Atlanta tomorrow to my BEST cross stitch store and with my BEST stitching friend. It's going to be a wonderful day! Susan, the shop owner, is holding the snowmen for me and the santa and the boxer kit... did I miss any? Thanks Linda for such fun and meaningful designs! I'm glad your mother is doing better. My mom is going through alot of health issues also, and it's hard for me to see her not being spunky and full of life like she used to prayers are with you both ♥

  4. I just finished ABC Halloween last week. I loved stitching it! Great design. Thank yoU!

  5. Linda I just got an order on stitching things a week ago and got all your new things. Can't wait to start the snowmen they are adorable. I will keep your Mother in my prayers. I hope you have a good week.
