November Lizzie Kate's

The credit card got a bit of a run a few weeks ago in a craft shop in America (gotta love internet shopping!) I have fallen in love with these Lizzie Kate designs. They are quick to stitch, and a nice break from the large projects I am working on at the moment. These are the 2003 and 2004 monthly designs. Once December 2005 is out, I will buy the complete set (to save on postage). Each month I will work on the following months bell pull. I will buy 1 hanger, and some velcro. Stitch the velcro on the back, attach it to the hanger, and change them each month..instead of buying 12 hangers! Nice to be sttiching these in the Northern hemisphere....where it actually is Autumn, and there are heaps of leaves, acorns and chestnuts falling to the ground!
The fabric is long enough for 5 or 6 designs...depending on how big next years designs are!

How true you are - weird seeing autumn charts being stitched by everyone else, while here the sun is just starting to shine ready for summer (although with the thunderstorm again last night, you might be fooled into thinking otherwise!). Your new quilt top looks fantastic - and I love the idea of putting velcro on your stitching to change the designs over every month - very cool. Also loved to see the Qantas tail ... but I guess I'm biased, as that's who I work for ... :)

Thanks for leaving a comment at my blog, Nicole :) Took me long enough to get it up and running!

The flip-its look great as does the quilt top, and I love the boys' painted faces :)
