Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope that all you mothers had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday. I spent the day getting ready for the coming week and then our son brought supper so I didn’t have to cook. 🙂
Here in Canada and the US, we have long weekends coming towards the end of May. Next Monday. May 22nd, Canada celebrates Victoria Day and then the following Monday, May 29 is Memorial Day in the US.
Because Workbasket was a US based company, I don’t have any patterns to share for you to stitch for Victoria Day but I do have ones that are perfect for Memorial Day and July 4th that I’ll be sharing this week and next.
This vintage Workbasket embroidery pattern of the Eagle with Banner would look great stitched and framed in red, white and blue patchwork that could then be turned into a pillow, small wall hanging or banner. The block would also be a wonderful addition to a Quilt of Valor.

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.
