NEW for 2018!

Hey L*K Blog Readers...I'm BACK!!! It's been a long (mostly unplanned) break from blogger-ville and the day to day happenings at L*K. After a nice holiday respite, I'm back in the groove and ready for 2018.

I want to tell you about 2 new Lizzie*Kate designs that are coming your  way SOON! We'll be shipping to shops worldwide on Wednesday, January 17. 

#189 Winter Smalls

Our seasonal Smalls series continue with 4 little winter projects. We've spelled out WINTER with fun motifs, just like Summer and Autumn. The other 3 projects are Snow, Sweetheart (Valentine's Day!) and Snuggle

Has anyone noticed that every season all of the projects begin with the same letter? It's a fun little design challenge for me and I'm wondering if anyone notices?! Check out #182 Summer Smalls (Birds, Bees, Berries) and #185 Autumn Smalls (Hoot, Halloween, Haunted). Now you know about my alphabet obsession!

B59 The Things We Love Inspiration Boxer

I've loved this quote for a long time and was surprised to find the source - St. Thomas Aquinas. It's a timeless saying...don't you agree? Boxer includes 32 ct. Lambswool linen, bonus pattern and beads.

Hope all of you are off to a wonderful 2018!

Please tell me I'm not the only person who hasn't finished putting away their Christmas decor?! I've rounded everything up - well almost everything - and hauled it downstairs. Now I'm trying to put it away in a "meaningful way". What the heck is that?

I'm trying to clean out/edit years of Christmas decor, instead of throwing all the stuff I used on top of the decor that didn't make it out of the totes this year. It's hard to part with some of that stuff, but it also feels good to pare down. And that's my excuse for why it's taking so long to put Christmas 2017 on the shelf!!! For some reason I find this kind of organization really exhausting/boring. What does that say about me? 

****BONUS POINTS if you noticed what is funky about the photo on the Winter Smalls. Look again! Is there something maybe 3 noses? Yes, I forgot to stitch the noses on the 3 snowmen. I know exactly how it happened. I'm sure I didn't have orange thread on my little cart, and figured I would do it later. And I didn't...and I forgot. I didn't notice the ominous missing noses until the finishing was done. 

Digital correction to the issue. The 3 noses are rightfully restored on the final cover photo on Winter Smalls. WHEW!!!


  1. When will these be available for purchase

  2. Hi Linda! Welcome glad you enjoyed your break. We all need those once in awhile. Lovely designs! Can't wait to order them. I have Summer and Autumn...looking forward to Winter :)

    Happy Stitching!

  3. I've taken it down but Christmas decorations all over the living room floor! Been that way for a week. Sigh. You are not alone!

  4. So glad you are back! I'm glad I'm not the only one who forgets things; I finished off your Coffee sled only to realize I'd omitted the little chocolate chips in the cookie! Oh well, I just kept that one and did a second, complete one for my daughter-in-law!

  5. Oh, the quote is just gorgeous - thank you so much for charting it, I'm really looking forward to purchasing it later on in January! :^)

  6. I know exactly what you mean by storing your Christmas decor in a meaningful way. It seems like I try a new method each year only to find out around July (yes, my thoughts seriously turn to Christmas that early) that my storage option was not meaningful at all {{sigh}}. This year I've completely thrown out my old ways and came up with (I hope) a meaningful system. We'll see...
    Great new designs as always... Happy New Year!

  7. Welcome back, and Happy New Year to you and your family. The new Winter Smalls are delightful! Can't wait to add them to my stash.

  8. Where can I buy
