Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #106

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #106

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

For many of us crafters, we’ve barely finished with one holiday and we’re either planning ahead to the next occasion we need to make gifts for or we’re thinking of ways to decorate our homes to suit the season.

Today’s vintage Workbasket embroidery pattern for Two Baskets Filled with Daisies would be a lovely one to stitch up to give for Mother’s Day or any upcoming spring or summer weddings. And they would definitely add pretty, feminine touches around the house.

As indicated on the pattern, you could trace out only one of the baskets and then use it to fit the space you were wanting to embroider… say on the corner of a napkin.

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.

    This is a really nice pattern too – one that would translate nicely into crazy quilting.

    Thanks! It’s nice just because, too. It would be pretty on pillowcases, or in a table runner with a pieced basket at each end, or just as a spring wall hanging.
