Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #90

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #90

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today here in Canada (and other Commonwealth countries) we’re celebrating Boxing Day. For some, it will be a day of hitting the after Christmas sales.

But for me, it’s my day to slow down and relax after the busyness of the holiday season. I don’t have to cook because the fridge is full of leftovers. I don’t have to clean or do laundry because those were all done before Christmas.

I may read or sew or maybe do some hand stitching. I have so many fun vintage patterns to choose from. Such as today’s free vintage Workbasket Snow Family and Friends!

Stitchery Link Party ButtonWELCOME TO STITCHERY LINK PARTY

#90

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 PartyIt 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. 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.

    I wanted to take this time to thank you for all you do for “us” out here silently receiving your free stitchery pattern – I always look forward to Mondays. I’m sure it takes quite some time to write an article and upload the designs, so thank you!
    Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

    I’ve just discovered your wonderful blog and am over the top excited. I truly enjoy hand embroidery and all the vintage patterns you’ve featured are causing more excitement. I am planning to read and enjoy as many posts as I can.

    Thank you!

    I always enjoy the fun embroidery designs. The Workbasket designs were the ones I first learned to embroidery from my grandmother.
