NEW designs are on the way to needlework shops! We shoved them out the door yesterday and are SO relieved to have some space to work again. About a thousand leaves blew in the door as the boxes went out, so autumn has definitely arrived.
Ready, set, go...here are the new designs!
Above is Be Jolly, our 2011 Christmas Kit (K54). You can read about the "evolution" of this kit in earlier blog posts, but here is the finished model. It's colorful and fun, and has a sort of retro feel to it. Kit includes 27/28 ct. tea linen, white crystal beads and exclusive design. Get this in your hands, and you'll feel jolly, too!
This is a new Quick-it called HoHoHo in a Row (Q10). I stitched it on frosty Morris blue linen from Weeks Dye Works, but you could put it on any little piece of neutral fabric from your stash. Quick-it includes 3 tiny red buttons. HOHOHO, baby!
Snow Fun 6 Fat Men Flip-it (F113)
Let It Snow 6 Fat Men Flip-it (F114)
Snow Day! 6 Fat Men Flip-it (F115)
The last 3 parts of the 6 Fat Men Flip-its are finally HERE! Yes, these guys have been anxious to join the other 3 chubby men. This batch includes my personal favorite of the designs...Snow Day! Visit our website www.lizziekate.com to see the 1st three snowmen in this series (F110 Snowed In, F111 Snow House, F112 Snow Friends).
Remember...if you want to stitch them all together (see photo on back of each design and on our website Home Page), there is a FREE template for this on our website. This also includes some free graphs for "Snowmen melt my heart" border and a cool birdhouse motif. Get SNOWY!
This is the 3rd design in our new Inspiration Boxer series, Not All of Us (B35). Your response to all 3 of these Inspiration designs has been...well, inspirational! We couldn't be more pleased. We're working hard on a new set of Inspiration Boxers for 2012. This kit includes 32 ct. Flax linen, hand-dyed raspberry flower buttons and a FREE design for a darling little pin pillow (pictured on cover). We also included an antique-gold heart charm for the pin pillow.
Finally, here is the Winter Alphabet embellished chartpak (#151). This design completes our seasonal alpha series, and it is my favorite. Or maybe I just like whichever one is newest? I do really like the beautiful colors and fun wintry motifs on this one. Chartpak includes tiny red buttons and itsy-bitsy antique gold heart charm.
The goods have left the L*K world headquarters and we're left with a mess! Every single design in this release required assembly - putting snowflake buttons in all 3 Flip-its, gluing red buttons in HoHoHo in a Row, inserting embellishment packs in the Winter Alpha, and assembling the Christmas Kits and Boxer Kits. WHEW! Now we're finding room on the shelves for the new designs and organizing the supplies, so we can keep track of them!
I feel the need for some extra energy, so it's off to our fave Mexi restaurant (El Paisa) for an infusion of salsa. I've have a #4 please, and a giant Diet Coke!
