Happy Monday Everyone!
Have you been able to get some stitching in over the past week?
Maybe even made a start on the Large Christmas Pine Cone Centerpiece motif that I shared last week?
Today’s Small Christmas Pine Cone Centerpiece motif is the perfect size to go along with last week’s pattern to make matching items.
Or use this smaller one on it’s own to add that little touch of something extra special to a gift you’re working on.
If you’re making a Christmas quilt, you could add one to each of the corners or setting blocks.
It would also be pretty embroidered on a small gift bag.
Or perhaps stitch up several of them to turn into small pouches filled with cedar chips with fabric hanging loops attached to hang in your closets to keep moths away. A set of those would make an awesome gift!
Vintage Workbasket Embroidery Pattern – Small Christmas Pine Cone Centerpiece
If you’re wanting something with even more of a Christmas feel to it, last year I shared a pattern with four different styles and sizes of Holly Branches.
(ad) Several of these Valdani 3 Strand Embroidery Floss Samplers pictured below have the perfect colors for stitching either the Christmas Pine Cone Centerpieces or the Acorns. You could also choose more than one to get just the right color combinations.
Each sampler comes with 12 tiny sample balls. 30 yds combined total in the set. (Please note: Not 30 yds each.)

Bonus… they’re on sale!!
WELCOME TO STITCHERY LINK PARTY #134
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:
- 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.
- Link directly to your blog post, not to your blog home page.
- 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.
- 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:
- Please link back to the Stitchery Link Party with a text link somewhere in your post.
- As well, please share the love and visit one or two (or more) of the other links and take time to leave a comment.
- It would be wonderful if you decided to follow me but it’s not necessary in order to take part in the link party.
