Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #53

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #53

Happy Monday Everyone!

I’ve schedule this post ahead but by the time it goes live, I’m hoping to have the main floor of our new home mostly unpacked and organized.

All the kitchen things are unpacked and put away. The master bedroom and guest bedroom are completely set up. But there’s one more box to unpack in the dining room and one more in the living room.

That doesn’t include the boxes and boxes of books that are stacked along one wall. I haven’t quite decided where I’m going to put our two tall bookshelves. Once I’ve made that decision, it won’t take long to unpack the books.

This coming week, I plan to tackle the sewing room/office. I’m really excited to get up there and start unpacking and organizing.

Perhaps by the end of the week, I’ll even have something new to share!

Today’s vintage pattern is the last in the series of stuffed toys. I would say that this one definitely falls under the same category of Franken Toys as the first one of the series.

Welcome to Stitchery Link Party #53

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.

    Not so bad without the tongue sticking out. LOL Best of luck with your unpacking plans! Always fun to start a new adventure, and you’re on the downhill side of the work now. Yay!
