I got on a "one color groove" this year and had a blast designing a couple quick Halloween projects.
Our S120 Nevermore Snippet is already available! It's quick, it's spooky, and it's full of great finishing possibilities! (Does anyone else think the buttons we used on our finish look like spooky eyes? Didn't plan this, but now every time I look those eyes are staring back at me!).
I had a difficult time deciding what fabric to use for stitching - everything looks good with BLACK, you know! I finally chose a fun gray Pewter overdye linen from Picture This Plus.
I'd like to challenge all of you to do some crazy, creative things with this little Snippet!
Whether it's a funky fabric, or a great finishing idea, or BOTH, please be sure and post your finished picture on the I Love Stitching Lizzie Kate Designs Facebook page. This is a fabulous place to share all of your great finishes and works in progress with the stitching world. I'll look forward to seeing what you all dream up.

This page is under the kind care and leadership of Wilma Cherney, and we all appreciate her work on this page so much! It's a super venue for sharing our projects and getting inspiration from each other.
The project above (S123 I Can Drive a Stick Snippet) is coming to shops in mid-August.
Just like S120 Nevermore, it only uses one color, so it stitches up so quickly! Also like Nevermore, there are a zillion possibilities for choosing fun fabrics and creative finishes. I stitched on 28 ct. Ale overdyed Lugana from Picture This Plus. You could use purple, chartreuse, anything pale or crazy that says Halloween to you. We finished it with some black pom pom trim and a tiny little broom, of course!
I saw this saying a couple months ago, and laughed out loud! Then I ran to the computer and started graphing. I don't know if everyone else finds this as funny as me, but it struck my funny bone, for sure. And sadly, NO...I cannot drive a stick (really, I can't!).
Don't be confused - we used black covers on both of our Halloween Snippets. S120 Nevermore is available NOW and S123 I Can Drive a Stick will be in shops in mid-August.
Only 101 more days until Halloween, the most BOO-tiful day of the year! Happy spooky stitching!
