Middle daughter and I popped in to our favorite local quilt shop on Saturday just before closing and we couldn’t believe how busy it was. While chatting with the owner we discovered that they’d been run off their feet for the last two weeks with quilters from all over stopping in to pick up their pattern in the Row by Row Experience as well the July Shop Hop for this region.
Yesterday, when I was browsing through the Row by Row facebook pages for several different states and provinces, I noticed quite a few rows that featured water lilies (to go with this year’s H2O theme.) I then searched through my pattern files and found this lovely vintage Workbasket pattern.
Whether you’re Row by Rowing or simply looking for something pretty to embroidery, I hope you enjoy this latest vintage pattern which can be downloaded as a pdf here.
Welcome to Stitchery Link Party #14!
For those visiting for the first time, you’ll want to check out not only this week’s party but previous ones as well. Parties #1 through #13 can be accessed by clicking on Stitchery Link Party in the categories section of the left hand side bar.
Without fail each week, I learn something new or find projects to inspire me… quite often both.
For those of you who like to plan ahead, I try to make sure to have this post scheduled to go live each Monday at 7 am EDT (11 am UTC.)
The rules for linking up 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.
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. 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. You will then be sent an activation e-mail. Once you click on the link in that e-mail, you will begin receiving updates each time I post. Buttons to follow me on other social media are in the upper left hand side bar.)
Oh and don’t worry if you’ve never linked up to a link party before, I’ve written a quick tutorial called How to Link Up to a Link Party to help you not only link up to this party but to any link party you might like to participate in.
