Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #55

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #55

I was first introduced to the celebration of Cinco De Mayo the first spring that we lived on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Hawaii prides itself not only on it’s Native Hawaiian and Polynesian heritage but it’s cultural diversity. All across the islands on May 5th you’ll see people celebrating Cinco De Mayo with their friends and neighbors of Mexican descent.

I thought it would be fun this week and next week to share a couple of patterns that could be stitched to add to any Cinco De Mayo decorating you may be doing.

Welcome to Stitchery Link Party #55

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.

    Thanks for the Cinco de Mayo – that would look cute on a tea towel for a Mexican friend or two! The click here link comes right back to this page. =)

      Hello Susan,

      That’s strange… when you clicked on the Click Here button, a pop up should have popped up! Perhaps you have all pop ups blocked on the browser you’re using. I had Dave and our daughter test it on their computers and their phones and it’s popping up for them. I’m trying some new things and sometimes it takes a bit of time to get the kinks worked out.

    I thought that perhaps you had a new web site when I kept getting the error. So glad it was a simple fix. Cute little stitchery this week. Thank you.
