Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party #52

Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party #52

Happy Monday Everyone!

I can’t believe that it’s been a year since I started hosting the Stitchery Link Party!

I had this really neat giveaway planned but with the move to our new home, I haven’t had the chance to get it completely organized. I promise that just as soon as I’m unpacked enough so that life feels a bit more back to normal, I’ll post that giveaway.

I do however have the next pattern in the series of stuffed toys to embroider. This little kitten may just be the cutest one of them all.

Welcome to Stitchery Link Party #52

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. 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 have missed the stitchery link up a couple of times recently, so I am glad to have something to share again this week. Hope you are settled in your new home! Christine x

    Good luck on your move. Don’t wear yourself out. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to move. We’re lived in our house for 25 years. Now most of the kids are grow we’ve been thinking about moving to a smaller and easier to care for home. Find yourself time to rest today.
