COMING SOON IN 2015!
K75 A Little Luck Kit
Remember my blog request for some "Little" ideas? You sent so many fabulous ideas and I'm working on several. St. Patrick's Day was a favorite idea, and it's that time or year, so I got to work. There's a tiny leprechaun, and lots of other green goodies. Kit includes 32 ct. lambswool linen, golden horseshoe charm and some antique golden beads. Luck to ye!
K76 ABCs of Faith Kit
It's been a long time since we've released an ABC kit, so we're happy to bring you another addition to the ABC family. We worked hard on these ABC phrases - prayer was involved! The beautiful muted colors make this kit a real heirloom. ABCs of Faith kit includes 8 skeins of Weeks Dye Works overdyed threads and pattern. You supply your favorite neutral colored linen.
3 Little Words Flip-its!
After I chose my favorites (the hard part!) I graphed them in groups of 2 sayings. There are 7 different Flip-its in the series, so that's 14 little phrases. Stitch them all together, stitch them separately, or choose your favorites and create your own personalized inspirational stitchery!
More pics and details of individual designs soon (I just finished stitching the models). I'm also planning an online contest for stitchers (that's YOU!) to submit their own favorite 3 word inspiration sayings! Once the winning saying is selected (we'll vote), I'll graph it and post on our website for a FREE (optional) addition to our 3 Little Words series.
Flora McSample's Snippets
Who's Flora? She's our little (fictional) sampler girl, created for a market promotion several years ago. We were encouraged to submit a design in a sampler style, and "name" our sampler stitcher. Since then, Flora has made several appearances with sampler-ish designs. Most recently, she designed Flora McSample's Christmas Ornaments (#168)
Anyway, (long story short), this year Flora will be doing a series of small sampler inspired designs, similar to the BONUS projects that come with every Inspiration Boxer. You can frame these little gems, make them into pin pillows, little cushions (the word our UK friends use for "pillows"), whatever you like. They will be charming, quick little vintage projects.
What did you do on New Year's Day? My husband had a terrible cold and I was trying to avoid spending time with him. Yes, I cooked him soup and all that, but I tried to stay as far as possible from his germs. So I stitched this little model (hiding in my home office). It's a lovely saying from Ralph Waldo Emerson. Flora and I spent some quality time together! Look for more small Flora McSample Snippets in 2015.
I wish all of you a very Happy New Year! I hope you have time for lots of stitching, and spending time with those you love. Which reminds me a saying that I'm currently graphing..."Collect moments, not things".
***We're beginning to move the L*K office later this week to it's new little office space. Stay tuned for pictures of the historic move (weather pending!).
