time for a sneak peek!

What's premiering at market this weekend? You'll know soon enough when all the shops start snapping pics and sending them your way via email, twitter, Facebook and all that!

But, inquiring minds want to know, so here's a bit of info about our 4 NEW KITS...and some sneak peek photos to whet your appetite!

Below is a portion of our new At Our House kit. We found this darling saying and couldn't wait to get it designed and stitched. It's sweet, funny, sentimental, full of family and love...we love it and hope you will, too! Kit includes design (you provide fabric), Crescent Colours overdyed threads and some DMC bits. It's a big design, but not so huge you'll be laboring over it for months! I whipped out my model in a week.

Our other 3 kits are Limited Edition kits...they'll be here today and (perhaps) gone tomorrow!  We accumulate a lot of fabric in our office (bulging cabinets, drawers, under tables, floor piles, you get the idea), and it's hard for me to throw out the leftovers and small cuts. I decided it was time for some mini-kits to use our abundance of small fabric pieces!

I designed 3 small projects (couldn't make up my mind on one!) and I've been busy rounding up fabrics for the past couple months. So, these 3 kits have assorted fabrics...lots of neutrals, but also pastels, hand-dyes, and more intense colors. Use your sleuthing skills and you may recognize some of this fabric from previous or current kits! We also included tiny packs of beads/buttons with each kit.

*Flowers Limited Edition Kit - a sweet, square design with beautiful muted colors and (you guessed it) floral motifs. Kit includes a hand-dyed flower button, some golden beads and assorted fabric.

*Chicks Limited Edition Kit - this Easter-y design has 3 darling chicks, chirping their way around a basket full of pastel eggs. This quickie kit stitches up fast, so you'll have plenty of time to dye your eggs and eat Easter candy. Includes green beads and assorted fabric

*A Bee C Limited Edition Kit - there are 3 bees and one letter "B" in this little vertical design, hence the name! We finished ours into a darling little needlebook/scissor holder, but you can do you own little thing. Includes rusty buttons and assorted fabric.

The Lizzie*Kate office has officially been declared a disaster area, as we assemble and pack all the goodies for market. YIKES!  It is scary and nearly impassable in here. 

Speaking of's a pic of our 2nd snowstorm in a week! It just blew in a couple hours ago, and it's rapidly adding to our leftover snow from the record-setting 16" we got last week. Guess I'll have to shove my flip-flops to the back of the closet again...darn!


  1. I can hardly wait to get your new releases. I've been on reservation list since you gave us a heads up awhile back.

  2. Can't wait for At Our House! If its what I think it is, I've wanted this saying in our home forever. I'm so excited!

  3. I can't wait for At Our House, I absolutely love that saying! I'm also excited for the other new releases! OOH, it's like Christmas for me!
