Can you believe that it’s July already?!!
That means that those of us who like to give handmade gifts for Christmas have less than six months to work on them. This month, all across blogland, you’re going to be seeing Christmas in July posts to inspire you to get to started on your Christmas crafting.
Today and for the next six Monday’s, I’ll be sharing an adorable Days of the Week (DOW) set of vintage Workbasket embroidery patterns for Brownies that with a bit of red and green colored floss and a maybe a little tweaking of the pattern can be transformed into Christmas Elves.
If you don’t celebrate Christmas, they could simply be embroidered as is. Or add some wings to change them from Brownies to Fairies.
And wouldn’t they be fun to print out for little ones to color!
Whichever way you decide to use them, they are sure bring a smile. 🙂

WELCOME TO STITCHERY LINK PARTY
For those who are newly subscribed or are visiting for the first time, every Monday I host a link party in which I invite others to share their hand embroidery projects.
If you’ve never linked up to a link party before and would like to join in, I’ve written a quick tutorial on How to Link Up to a Link Party. It provides step-by-step instructions for linking to this party (or any other link party you might like to participate in.)
The rules for the Stitchery Link Party are simple:
1. The project can be anything as long as it includes hand embroidery stitches in some form. Such projects might be but are not limited to redwork, blackwork, goldwork, bluework, (etc), counted cross-stitch, crazy quilting, crewel, silk ribbon, pulled thread, hardanger and sashiko.
These projects do not have to be vintage or vintage inspired. All styles are welcome as long as it’s hand embroidered.
2. Link directly to your blog post, not to your blog home page.
3. If you happen to sell your embroidery or embroidery patterns, feel free to link up to a blog post you’ve written about a project you’re selling, but No direct links to shops or websites selling things.
4. This will be a curated link party. In other words, if a link does not conform to the three simple rules above, it will be removed.
The next three are more requests than rules. They are by no means a requirement to take part in the party:
5. Please link back to the Stitchery Link Party with a text link somewhere in your post.
6. As well, please share the love and visit one or two (or more) of the other links and take time to leave a comment.
7. It would be wonderful if you decided to follow me but it’s not necessary in order to take part in the link party.
