Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party #113

Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party #113

Happy first Monday of June!

The last time I shared a vintage Workbasket alphabet embroidery pattern with you was this Curvy Alphabet. It’s time that I shared another one.

I decided on the name Mid Century Modern for this alphabet because it has the same boxy style that you’ll see in a lot of the furniture designs of that period.

The letters of this alphabet embroidery pattern would look super stitched in satin stitch. But they could also be done in a simple back stitch or stem stitch which I think would look particularly effective if you used variegated floss.

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.

    Great alphabet, thank you! I didn’t stitch anything last week, so nothing to post here, but next week, maybe!

    I bet you are sure happy to have your daughter home. I fear it may be difficult and somewhat dangerous for Americans to be in certain countries right now. You have tons of catching up to do. Joy!
