Which got me thinking...I should do a BACON themed design...or maybe 3 or 4. I've done designs about chocolate, coffee and tea...so BACON was a natural...right? Sort of the 4th in the L*K food group series! So I rounded up some fun BACON sayings and got to work designing and stitching models. I have to say, I was smiling my way through this marathon round of speedy BACON model stitching!
We'll be shipping the new BACON BITS chartpak next Monday, along with other new L*K designs. We haven't got it back from the printer yet, but here's a computer printout of the cover. We did the whole retro kitchen look with a red-checked tablecloth, plate and fork...I love doing this stuff!
When I went to the photographer to shoot the group last week. we gathered up a bunch of fun retro kitchen things. I brought my grandmother's iron skillet (and we added real BACON). Steve contributed some other cool props - this antique flour scoop....
and this ultra-cool antique egg weigher - check it out on the left of the photo below. I tacked one of the designs on an apron I already had for a fun finish.
