Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #54

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #54

I think almost everyone here in Southwestern Ontario was feeling as light-hearted and happy as these two children.

Vintage Workbasket Embroidery Pattern - Dancing Children

The weather this past weekend was absolutely beautiful. For the first time in months, we’ve been able to venture outside without a jacket. In fact… if you weren’t careful, you might even have gotten a sunburn!

Such an incredible change in weather from the previous weekend when we had snow and ice.

Everywhere I went, people were out working in their yards and in the evenings the smell of grilling/bbq drifted on the air.

Let’s hope that spring is finally here to stay!

Welcome to Stitchery Link Party #54

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.

    What a cute embroidery pattern! I am so glad you were able to enjoy the weather. It reached the mid 80’s here and lawn mowers were heard throughout the weekend. I hope you have a wonderful week!

    Those dancing children are adorable. Today is the first day that no jacket was needed. Our weekend was beautiful but you needed a light jacket. I love those grilling smells. I too hope that Spring is here to stay.

    Gorgeous weekend here, too, right through sunny today. Tomorrow the clouds start, but at least it’s warm!

    I didn’t realize you were in SWO, I grew up near London. 🙂 And we had a beautiful day out in Vermont yesterday too, in fact DD and I did get sunburned, but not too badly.
