It's official "holiday stitching time" and we're ready with lots of new goodies! We're got new designs for Christmas and Thanksgiving (you asked!). Here are new additions to the L*K family.
#177 Flora McSample's 2016 Treats
Our sampler girl, Flora, is back with her annual collection of holiday goodies with a vintage look. Flora designed 3 little projects - bowl fillers, pin pillows, whatever you want to call them/however you want to finish them little gems.
Flora uses the same color palette every year, so they are compatible with her previous years' stockings and other little projects. Chartpak includes embellishments for all 3 projects. I love Flora's sweet "treats" for 2016!
S128 Peppermint Sleds Snippet
I got carried away designing little sleds this year, so we've got TWO new collections of sled designs! Each Snippet includes tiny button embellishments for all 3 sleds. We use the same color palette every year, so these sleds "match" the sleds from previous years.
S129 Snowy Sleds Snippet
These little sleds are so quick and easy, it's addictive. Stitched on perforated paper (or fabric, if you choose), these little guys stitch and finish up in a wink. Includes iridescent white beads for all 3 sleds.
S130 Wise Men Still Seek Him Snippet
Perfect for the true spirit of the season. This timeless design stitches up quickly, but you'll enjoy it for years to come. We framed our model, but it would make a great little pillow.
K92 A Little Thankful Kit
You've been requesting a Thanksgiving "Little" kit, so here it is. No turkey here, but we did include those famous "3 ships" that discovered America and the New World with our pal, "Chris" Columbus on board. Kit includes beautiful Amber linen, antique gold acorn charm and golden beads.
B54 Come Let Us Adore Him Inspiration Boxer Kit
Boxers are back, but they're UNBOXED! We've replaced the plastic case with a plastic sack - no more breakage and much lighter/cheaper for shipping. The good news is, same great Boxer kits wait for you inside the "Boxer bag."
We're pleased to introduce our first Christmas Inspiration Boxer with the lyric from a favorite carol. Kit includes 30 ct. Natural linen, 3 cream snowflake buttons and BONUS project.
F163 November December Yearbook Double Flip
Our 2016 Yearbook Flip-it series is finally complete! And here's the good thing... we have the same 12 months every year, so these never go out of style.

Complete instructions on our website for combining the year on one stitchery. November/December comes with antique gold squirrel and Christmas heart charms.
SPOOKED! Mystery Sampler Part 3
Its finally here... Part 3 of our SPOOKED! Mystery Sampler, which includes the long-awaited sampler photo on the cover. So why does our picture not include the photo? We'll post it soon after SPOOKED! has made it to shops everywhere.

Tiny Tidings XXI
21 years and counting! I was thinking about my favorite Christmas things this year, and came up with a list of 5 favorite Christmas characters...Santa, Mrs. Santa, reindeer, elf, and (of course), snowman. They're each a darling little ornament size and each has it's unique embellishment. I was enjoying these little Christmas friends so much, I combined 4 of them on another design (sorry, little elf) with some trees and lots of snow. Lots of holiday stitching fun for Tiny Tidings 2016! Complete finishing instructions will be available at magicbymona.blogspot.com

We're really excited to introduce our new Yearbook Double Flips!
What's a Yearbook Double Flip? We're doing another monthly series. It's been years and years since we've done a monthly series, and decided it was the perfect way to celebrate L*K's 20th anniversary in the needlework biz. And you know... we have the same 12 months every year... so this never goes out of style. We decided on the name "Yearbook" as a nod to our 20 years in the needlework biz. Click through to the inside pages for more details.
Here are some details about the upcoming Yearbook Double Flips:
Each Yearbook Double Flip contains 2 monthly designs.
We're using the same set of 12 antique gold charms that we used for our original "A Year with Charm" Flip-it series. It was a fun design challenge for me to incorporate the same 12 charms, and a remembrance of "Flip-its past."
Each Yearbook Double Flip contains a motif from a previous L*K design. As we celebrate 20 years together, I'm in a nostalgic mood so I decided to do a little "hide and seek" game with all of you. Look for a "repeat" motif borrowed from a previous L*K design in each month. They're not always exact repeats, but you can spot them.
F158 January February Yearbook Double Flip
Let's get this Yearbook party started! Stitch these separately, or combine them all into one long calendar of stitches. Includes snowflake and locket antique gold charms.
F159 March April Yearbook Double Flip
More Yearbook fun...in stitches! Includes shamrock and butterfly antique gold charms.
F160 May June Yearbook Double Flip
We're ready for summer with some of our favorite cheerful motifs. Includes garden shovel and dragonfly antique gold charms.
S125 For We Walk by Faith Snippet
Amen! I hope you love this scripture as much as I do, II Corinthians 5:7. Great words to stitch and live by!
B53 Accept What Is Inspiration Boxer
This saying was one of the "finalists" from an earlier inspiration sayings contest. As we celebrate 20 years together in the needlework biz, I want to fill 2016 with lots of positive, empowering, "can-do" thoughts. Boxer kit includes 32 ct. Lambswool linen, pink buttons and the largest BONUS design ever. Happy 20th!
K87 Selfie Sampler Kit
We're in a positive, self-empowering groove in 2016 here at L*K. When we found this wonderful saying, a kit was born. We offer 2 different stitching options - choose your favorite shape. Fabric included is adequate for whichever choose you make. Kit includes lovely 32 ct. Red Pear linen, embellishments for sampler and bonus project, and bitty BONUS design. We've also included finishing instructions for the Selfie Sampler pillow and bonus "weenie" project.
K88 Love Summer Limited Edition Kit
Following in the footsteps of Very Merry Santa, and Hello Spring, we're continuing our little "purse" series. Love Summer includes our favorite summer-y motifs, including our first L*K mermaid. She's holding a golden shell charm. Kit includes 30 ct. Lambswool linen, classic bandana finishing fabric, twine handle, and complete finishing instructions. Summer is just around the corner!
K89 Red White and Blue Kit
We're in a patriotic mood at L*K in 2016 and we're proud to wave the red, white and blue. Classic sampler motifs combine with classic L*K charm (and a big, wavy flag!) to create a sweet sampler. Kit includes 32 ct. Lambswool linen, iridescent white beads, deep sea houndstooth wool, vintage-look backing fabric, stripe ribbon, mother of pearl round button, twine for cording AND (whew!) complete finishing instructions. Long may she wave!
#174 Be Bold and Brave
Everyone keeps requesting more inspirational sayings, so I've combined 2 favorites in this chartpak, plus a bonus pin cushion design.
I just love both of these empowering phrases. They're great words to begin the New Year. #175 Bras and Panties
The Big Girl Panties are back!! Maybe the most oft-requested phrase ever (who knew?!), I decided 2016 was the time to bring the undies out of the drawer.
We're including some hand-dyed buttons in orange and pink to add to the "unmentionable" fun.
K85 A Little Baby Kit
It's a new member for the "Little" kit club and perfect for the newest little one you love. This one is a cutie and has space for easy personalization. It's a quickie gift that will last a lifetime. The colors are easy to tweak for girls or boys. Just change the colors on the baby booties.
Includes 28 ct. Lambswool linen, alphabet and numbers for personalization and antique gold heart charm.
K86 Hello Spring Kit
I just adored the little purse finish on our recent Very Merry Santa Kit, so I'm doing a "little purse/pocket/whatever you call it" series for 2016.
We're including 30 ct. Lambswool linen, vintage-looking finishing fabric, burlap-y ribbon, pale pink button and 2 mother-of-pearl flower buttons. And, of course, complete finishing instructions and template. It's the perfect time to think spring with this sweet little project.

SNOW STORY Flip-its!!!
Are you ready for snow? We've got a blizzard coming your way! SNOW STORY is a 3-part mini Flip-it series. Each snowy design can be stitched separately, or combined into one long Snow Story.
SNOW STORY isn't a "Christmas" design, but it can definitely be displayed over the holidays. The fun part is...you don't have to put Snow Story away with your holiday gear. SNOW STORY is perfect for chilly winter displays after the holidays.
Each Snow Story Flip-it comes with 2 hand-dyed navy buttons. Snow Story Flip-its stitch up in a snap, because the color palette is simple.
The individual SNOW STORY models are finished flat and attached to snowflake cutouts from Hobby Lobby. We'll have complete finishing instructions available at magicbymona.blogspot.com. As always, you can finish like our models, or do your own snow-inspired finishing.
Stitch Count for the entire Snow Story is 229W x 33H. We stitched the combined Snow Story on 32 ct. Storm linen from Picture This Plus. The individual models were stitched on 28 ct. Storm linen.
#173 Flora McSample's 2015 Christmas Stockings
I really love designing and stitching these mini stockings every year. This year I chose a "Christmas Carol" theme and used titles from 3 of my favorite carols. Chartpak includes 3 designs with embellishments.

It's a great Thanksgiving design, but the sentiment works year round. Enjoy the stitching blessings!

We just couldn't resist adding one more "ode to orange" to our 2015 Halloween lineup. We love designing for Halloween, and this kit is classic L*K (and quite different from our other Halloween offerings this year). Halloweenie has 2 quickie projects: pillow and bitty fob.
This kit will be gone soon...just like Halloween 2015...so let your favorite needlework shop know to order Halloweenie NOW!

#172 Tiny Tidings XX
Yes, those 2 little X's mean it's been 20 years of Tiny Tidings here at L*K. That's over 100 little Tiny Tidings designs all together! We tried something different this year, and used 2 colors of petite dot linen for our fabric. It's your choice to use the dots, or your favorite neutral fabrics. We've included instructions for both.

S122 Celebrate! Santa '15 Snippet
This is my favorite Santa in a long while, because he's just so happy and playful...just like a child at Christmas-time. We finished Santa '15 into a darling little pocket, but you can do your own favorite finish.

Finish Santa in style with these little goodies... white snowflake button, red triangle button and petite red beads.

#171 Seasons chartpak
This idea began as a Snippet series of 4 seasonal designs, then I decided to pack them all in one chartpak for a good value. This chart will sell year round because there's a sweet design for every season.

This little Halloween project is a snap to stitch because it's all in one color...black, of course! I took a little raven motif from the main Snippet, and put it in a little watch fob for a second stitching idea.
