Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #43

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #43

Today I’m sharing another pretty Valentine’s Day pattern but before I do, I just wanted to remind everyone that the In Our Garden Blog Hop starts today over at Sew Incredibly Crazy with Amy sharing the two blocks she designed for February. Be sure to hop over there to see what she’s created for you to make.

And don’t forget… there are prizes for those who hop along with us as well as prizes for those who make the blocks and link them up at the end of the month!

This week’s Vintage Workbasket embroidery pattern is a lovely heart border:

Wouldn’t this look pretty stitched on a pillowcase or a set of towels!

You could even spread them apart when you’re tracing them and then insert a monogram using one of the alphabets I’ve shared here in the past; this pretty 1″ floral alphabet for instance. Or this 2″ one.

Stitcher Link Party ButtonWelcome to Stitchery Link Party #43

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 called How to Link Up to a Link Party to help you not only link up to this party but to any 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. Or if you’d prefer you can use the cool button that our son designed for me.

Simply copy and paste the code you’ll find under the button in my left side bar. You can add it to your post or to the sidebar of your blog.

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.

    Thanks so much for this heart border. It’s fabulous! I do have a couple of cup towels that could use embroidery, and I think one of them even has a red woven border!

    Thank you for the pattern. Would like to do all the heart patterns and use in a quilt, will have to see but first the embroidery. Is there any way to link up when you don’t have a website?
