Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #108

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #108

Happy Monday!

Last week, I shared an adorable, vintage Workbasket embroidery pattern for a family of a hen and her chicks. Well every family needs a father, so this week I’m sharing the pattern for the rooster.

Stitch up one or both patterns to add a bit of whimsy to your farmhouse decor. Or if farmhouse decor isn’t your thing, perhaps you have a friend who loves chickens who would appreciate them as a gift.

If you follow me @supermomnocape on Instagram, you’ll have seen that these two rooster ornaments arrived recently from our daughter who is teaching in China.

Chinese Year of the Rooster - 2017

2017 is the Chinese Year of the Rooster. They didn’t arrive in time for me to put them up for Chinese New Year, but she assures me that they can be displayed for the entire year.

So perhaps stitch up this delightful rooster pattern, add the year underneath and it could be the start of a collection of Chinese Zodiac embroideries.

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 rooster, thanks! I didn’t get any stitching done in the last week. Being sick really threw me off schedule with everything!

    Those ornaments are beautiful. I really do like the rooster you posted today also. He is so cheerful, I can almost here him crowing!
