Our Lizzie Kate Boxer Collection|
These are a fun collection of seasonal houses, silly sayings, and more recently, lovely, inspirational verses and quotes. Originally called BOXERS because Lizzie Kate had a *Boxer Shorts* promotion at market one year. She debuted some new kits in a CD BOX... and named them BOXERS. I think she might even have had actual cotton boxer shorts that year as booth decoration. Anyway, the packaging stayed the same... so the collection has GROWN!!!
Offered as charts with a cut of linen and small embellishment... we hope you enjoy looking through all your choices!
I Am Only One B55 Boxer Kit
Lizzie Kate's newest Inspirational Boxer kit -- she is donating the chart proceeds to charity! The kit comes with 30ct lambswool linen fabric for the main piece *I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something!* There are embellishments in the package, and a darling bonus design as well.
Stove Builders of Guatemala is the charity (read about it -- she has an awesome little write-up in here, complete with a photograph-- via the insert in the kit), that provides cooking stoves to families in Guatemala. Linda says: she "was fortunate to visit Guatemala several years ago and hopes to go back to build more stoves -- and practice her poor Spanish! She is excited to partner with stitchers around the world to bring joy (and safe cooking!) to the indigenous families of Guatemala."
I Am Only One finishes approx 9 x 3, and uses weeks or DMC flosses. The little bonus design, Love One Another measures just 2 x 3 -- a perfect pin cushion size!
B54 - Come Let Us Adore Him
A new Inspirational design... Come Let Us adore Him, Christ the Lord.
Presented as the chart with 30ct natural linen and three snowflake buttons... you get a bonus chart to stitch as well!
B53 - Accept What Is Inspiration Boxer
*Accept what is...let go of what was... and have faith in what will be.*
The next Inspirational Boxer, Linda always has a small bonus design in these -- many times kind of forgotten because they aren't the main verse design -- but alot of them are REALLY GOOD designs.
This time, you are getting a HUGE alphabet that is the same size as the main design!!! The Boxer package contains the 32ct Lambswool linen and a few mini-button embellishments. You add your bits of floss.
B52 Life is better Boxer Kit
Amen, sister! This sentiment makes a great gift for a special stitching pal, or keep it for yourself.
Kit includes 30 ct. Lambswool linen, dark blue buttons and Linda's favorite BONUS design ever!
Gratitude Turns What We Have Into Enough Inspirational Boxer
... the first of three new releases, there will be three Boxers releasing -- now, December and January.
This one includes the 30ct Lambswool Linen, an embellishment and BONUS design. This time the little bonus reads, *Begin each day with a grateful heart.*
***A word here... Linda has several Inspirational Boxers, and they all have bonus designs. LOOK AT THEM... they are DARLING... and easy to ignore because they aren't the main message of the kit. I am always amazed when I see one stitched... because I never recognize where it came from!
No Act of Kindness Boxer
Lizzie Kate is sending two new things next week when she sends Part Two of Things Unseen!
No Act Of Kindness is another Inspirational Boxer with a verse from Aesop's Fables.

I cannot count my day complete until needle and thread meet.
The next Inspirational Boxer, both the main verse and smaller bonus design feature small sewing and stitching motifs to make then extra-charming for stitchers.
Offered with the 32ct fabric, a few embellishments tossed in... the bonus design is finished on top of a painted paper box -- what a cute gift for a stitcher friend!
'Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened!' The latest Inspirational Boxer, this comes with a cut of 30ct Natural Linen, a bit of embellishment, and as always a bonus design!

By Lizzie Kate, this is offered as a partial kit of chart, embellishments and cut of 32ct Lambswool linen. You'll need a needle, and bits of flosses from your stash.
The bonus chart -- Live Simply -- will need an additional cut of your favorite fabric --

Summer and Autumn Banner Years!

These are so cute because the season 'floats' across the centers of the designs... and if you put all four close together... that is more pronounced... and you can see the wave going across all four! They're cute by themselves, too!
One more in this set... Winter... will follow in a few months. (literally!!!) Clear plastic box contains the chart, linen and button.
Banner Year -- Winter Boxer
The final installment in the Banner Year Boxers... you now have all four seasons that are great stitched by themselves, but have EXTRA-impact when stitched all together on one piece of fabric.

Finishing approx 5 x 5, it's the same size and composition as the Autumn Cottage Boxer, previously released.
Your walls can be as well dressed as you are... if you both are wearing Lizzie Kate Boxers!!!
Stitched on 28ct Flax linen, this is a fun and quick seasonal decoration... that begs to be finished into a box shape!!! Our Mona will be busy with that! Using Weeks Dye Works threads in brick, cocoa, carrot, mocha, and schneckley, to name a few, (there are 19 delicious colors called for in this!)... it measures 5 x 5," and comes with a handmade clay leaf button, for the center pumpkin. Both the linen and button are included on this Boxer Kit; all you supply is your overdyeds in your stash!
Here's the second in LK's boxer series of designs... this one is so colorful, I love it! Stitched in Weeks overdyed flosses on 28ct Flax linen, there is a tiny yellow bird embellishment that perches on the snowman's arm.
Just like the Autumn design, The Christmassy motifs surrounding him are brilliant blue mittens and packages, candy canes, a gingerbread boy, snowflakes and a tree. A lot here, it's just real cute! Your boxer contains the chart, linen and needle, and the yellow bird. You add the overdyeds from your stash!
The third in this delightful series of small, square seasonal designs. Not too cutesy, not just eggs and chicks... LK has used soft spring overdyed shades, and included favorite springtime motifs in the design.
Joining the Autumn and Winter Boxers already stitched in the shop... you could do all four of these on a four-sided stand-up cube shape... you could stitch them all together in a four-patch format for a fantastic pillow presentation... you could stitch a long and skinny four-some for a special space... or you could save them for a rainy day!
Spring Boxer's embellishment is an enchantingly pretty periwinkly purple clay flower button, too! Each boxer includes the chart, linen, and seasonal embellishment!
The final in this set of seasonal squares... Summer has sailboats and floats, berries and melons, swiming fish, and even a small clay ladybug button embellishment.
Finishing approx 5 x 5 on the 28ct Natural linen that's included, you add your own overdyeds from Weeks Dye Works. Very colorful, all four of these have been really cute!
