Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party #112

Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party #112

Happy Monday Everyone! Welcome to another Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party.

To those living in the US, I hope that you’re spend the weekend enjoying time with family and friends as you take time today to remember those who have given their lives in the line of duty while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

When my husband Dave was in the Canadian army, my greatest fear was that one day he wouldn’t come home to me. Luckily he always did. Others have not been so fortunate. We stand with them today to remember the sacrifices made.

Many will be placing wreaths and flowers on the graves of loved ones who were lost and so today I thought I’d share this pattern for three different flowers.

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.

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.

    The flower patterns are lovely! Today is always such a somber one. Definitely a day to remember the sacrifices that have been made.

    I love these flowers to embroider. My blog is overflowing with flowers today as I spent a good deal of this weekend planting my pots. I love the bleeding heart.

    The flowers are perfect for Memorial Day here in the states. Thank you for the sweet patterns.
