Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #22

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #22

We’ve come to the last in the series of vintage Workbasket patterns featuring dancing, singing and instrument playing veggies.   While the band was playing and others were dancing… this charming banana pepper got down on his knee and proposed to the lovely lady cauliflower.

I made one small addition to the original pattern.  The cauliflower is holding a single bullion rose in her hands given to her by the pepper before he proposed.

This pattern can be downloaded as a pdf here.

While this series is now complete, the project that I embroidered the set on isn’t quite finished.   I’ll be revealing that next Monday.

Welcome to Stitchery Link Party #22

If you happen to be visiting for the first time, every Monday I host a link party in which I invite others to share their hand embroidery projects.  The breadth of skills and talent in the projects that are linked up each week is truly impressive.  I never fail to be inspired.

If you’ve never linked up to a link party before and would like to join in, 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.

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.  (Please note:  For those of you who have already been kind enough to add the button, the coding has been updated and I would so appreciate it if you would grab the new code.)

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.)

    Thank you for another great link party! (It is probably operator error, but I got a message “Something is not right here” when I clicked on the new button in this post. I will try again later, my computer has been a bit goofy this morning.)

    Thank you for offering an opportunity for us to share our stitching and to see so many wonderful projects others are working on!

    Adorable! Love the addition. You were right about the cuteness factor on this one. I’ll link a little later today.
