Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #50

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #50

I had to laugh last week when CathieJ commented:

I was going to agree that that bunny is adorable but I happened to glance at him quickly and there is quite a gleam in his eyes. I’m not sure if it is evil or mischievous. Never-the-less, this is a great pattern.

I have to admit that I’d noticed that gleam in the bunny’s eyes as well. In fact, I was tempted to call this series FrankenToys and save them until Halloween to post. Whether you stitch them for Easter/Spring or save them for Halloween, I hope you enjoy making them.

Welcome to Stitchery Link Party #50

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:

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.

    This baby chick is much cuter than the bunny.

    Cathie’s comment cracked me up – as did your FrankenToys comment. Thank you for the pattern and another great link party. Week 50 already! Has it nearly been a year already?! Time does fly…

    Hi Sue, thought you were missing in action for a while and finally figured out the problem yesterday. I
    I think I was deleted from your list and I have lost your email.
    Wanted to send you a picture of my Archie Owl. Please contact me off this blog.
