Last week I spent Sunday night at the hotel in Lacrosse as the weather was going to be iffy overnight and I needed to be at the clinic at 8 am. I brought something with to keep me busy….my laptop so I could watch Netflix and my current cross stitch project.
My project is nothing too exciting. It’s a LizzieKate ABC sampler. It’s a companion project to one of the boxed kits I had already finished. I was happily stitching along when I got to thinking…hm…. It’s been a bit since I’ve been over to the LizzieKate blog.
I was watching Netflix on the computer so got my phone and looked it up. I read through the first couple posts that I’ve missed and then WHAM! WHAT? LizzieKate is retiring. NO!!! How can that be? If you’re a LizzieKate fan who missed it like me, read about it here.
Oh, I am so sad…so sad. I love their things. For the most part, it’s the only thing I’ve been cross stitching.
My long term goal has been to stitch up a bunch of the sayings and hang them in a huge grouping on my bathroom wall. I have a few done….See?
I have a couple more stitched…just not framed yet. I love doing them. They will all have eclectic frames…all wood though.
So…now what’s a girl to do? Happily they are still filling orders but it’s made me want to run out and buy a half of dozen more patterns before they are no longer available. I best start saving some money!! There will be a cross stitch shop stop in my near future.
I did hop over to ebay and they have patterns that are LizzieKate available as well but I prefer getting them from a shop.
Isn’t is so sad when favorite designers call it quits? Alas.
Today I have my cross stitch with me as I travel to Lacrosse for my PET scan. I love having something quick to grab and go. This is what I’m stitching now….completely appropriate for the day!!
I so love LizzieKate designs….and these are the exact words I need today.
