Helping you create a home by hand.

Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party #3

When Dave traces out the patterns, if they are too big to fit on a single 8.5″X11″ sheet of paper he divides them up onto two (or more) sheets.  I usually then post the sections in successive weeks but with Mother’s Day coming up in a little less than two weeks, I thought I’d post both sections for this lovely Pansy Dresser Scarf so that it could be completed in time.

The right section can be downloaded here.

We had another thirteen wonder projects (14 if we count mine) linked up last week.  I hope you had a chance to go check some of them out!

Thank you to those who were new who linked up.  And a special thank you to the lovely ladies who returned for a second week.

I’ve had a few comments and e-mails from readers saying they don’t know how to add their link to the party so I’ve written a quick tutorial called How to Link Up to a Link Party to help you not only link up to my Stitchery Link Party but to any link party you might like to participate in.

I’m looking forward to being inspired again this week.

The rules are simple:

1. The project can be anything you’ve made as long as it includes 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.

Stitcher Link Party ButtonSimply 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. I would, of course, love it if you decide to follow me but it’s not necessary in order to take part in the link party. (If you do decide to follow me, you can subscribe to e-mail updates in the box on the upper right hand side bar. Buttons to follow me on other social media are in the upper left hand side bar.)

    Thanks for inviting me to your link party. I was looking for a link party for embroidery though there are so many for crochet and other things. Happy to showcase my work here. Also thanks for the comment on my blog.

    I was able to work only a little bit on my redwork this weekend but I made a little more progress on my winter wonderland. The pansies look wonderful!
