Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #45

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #45

Wouldn’t it have been fun if the Hexie Turtles and I could have had our tea party yesterday with a cute tea set like this week’s Vintage Workbasket pattern?

I may just have to stitch them on a set of napkins for the next one!

Welcome to Stitchery Link Party #45

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 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 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.

    These are such cute embroidery patterns! Love them. I hoped to finish up the block I am working on to link up with the party today, but failed. On the bright side, it will be ready to share next Monday! 😉 I’ve enjoyed visiting the other bloggers that linked up. Thanks for another great link party!

    I loved the little turtle story yesterday, I’m not sure of the history of them, but it was a lot of fun to read, thank you. Thank you also for the pattern, they are just so sweet. Guida

    Darling. It reminds me of the movie Beauty and the Beast.
