Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #71

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #71

As promised, today’s vintage Workbasket Embroidery Pattern is the mate to last week’s Happy Flowering Plant. Simply substitute this face for that one and you’ll have a boy plant. 🙂

Just as soon as Dave and I finish painting the sewing room/office and the new bookshelves that he custom built for me, I have a plan for these two patterns!

But for right now, my fabric dresser, cutting table and Singer 15-91 in her beautiful Art Deco cabinet along with my desk and other furniture are being kept safe from paint splatters under a huge sheet of plastic.

Stitchery Link Party Button



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 PartyIt 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.

    Thank you so much for this boy’s face for the flower. You are always generous with your posts. Is there any way to keep your blue header from sliding down and covering 1/3 of my screen when I’m reading? I have a lap top that is 13″ and it drives me crazy. LOL Short trip, I know.

      Hello Susan… I sent you an email. We’re looking into it.
