3 Little Words FREEBIE is ready!

Sweet Summer Limited Edition kits are out the L*K door and ready to greet the "official" beginning of summer with the Memorial Day holiday. If you pre-ordered from your fave needlework supplier, or just want/need a Sweet Summer kit, now's the time to nab one.

Sweet Summer kits will be available until Labor Day 2015. After that, they're retired and outta here! Kit includes 25 ct. cream linen (easy to see when you're on the go!), sparkly fiber for drink glass and sunglasses, aqua beads and sweet little seashell trim.

We've also included complete finishing instructions. You can make your Sweet Summer look just like ours, or dream up something fun using the trim and share it on the I Love Stitching Lizzie Kate Designs Facebook page! (this is a great place to share all of your L*K projects and fun finishes).

Now that the initial Sweet Summer shipment is done, I had time to design the FREE chart from our recent 3 Little Words inspiration sayings contest. The 2 winning sayings were "believe in yourself" and "follow your heart". These 2 winners fit so nicely together, it was fun designing!

Here's the link for the FREE chart posted on the L*K website

Three Little Words Freebie

You can stitch this FREE design alone, or mix and match it with other 3 Little Words Flip-its to create your own inspiration statement.

Stay tuned for details coming next week on our Summer 2015 Mystery Sampler!

Happy Memorial Holiday, everyone!

SWEET SUMMER Limited Edition Kit!

Summer is just around the corner, and we're celebrating with a super summer-y kit. It's also super quick, super bright and super fun...just like SUMMER!

SWEET SUMMER Kit will be available from Memorial Day until Labor Day 2015. Then it will retire, just like your white shoes. Unlike your favorite white flip flops (and capris), this sunny kit will NOT return next year.

Sweet Summer Kit includes 25 ct. Cream Dublin linen (easy to see for on-the-go stitching), watery turquoise beads, iridescent fiber (to stitch drink glass and sunglass lenses), and the coolest trim with darling little seashells. 

We're also including complete finishing instructions, courtesy of Mona, our finishing guru. You supply fibers from your stash, the summer drink of your choice, and summer FUN!

Above is the darling trim we're including. My kitchen table is awash in tiny seashells - not a normal occurrence in Kansas! These little shells are the perfect finishing touch to this summer project - even if you're not near a beach (like me!).

We're busy cutting and folding fabric as we await delivery of the colorful kit cover from the printer. Today I delivered the inside pattern and instructions to Debbie, my loyal proofer at my LNS. We hope to begin assembling kits this weekend.

Meanwhile, now's the time for you to pre-ORDER from your favorite needlework supplier. We'll be shipping to shops everywhere on Friday, May 15. Expect this kit to wash ashore at your favorite shop the following week.

We have a historic summer ahead of us at the Ebright household and Lizzie*Kate. We'll be moving to our new home sometime in early June. Once we're settled and able to catch our breath, I'm having knee replacement surgery at the end of June. I hope to spend July recuperating with, you guessed it, a summer drink, some needlework in my hand, and my knee elevated!

Just like summer 2015, our Sweet Summer Kit will be gone before we know it! Wishing all of you a summer full of stitches, fun and summer-y memories! 

What's on your summer 2015 schedule?
