Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #76

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #76

Happy Almost Fall Monday!

I’ve got a really cute series of vintage Workbasket embroidery patterns to share with you over the next several weeks. The pattern page doesn’t say what these are intended to be used on, but I’ve decided that the children are all dressed up for Halloween!

First up… because we’re still having more summer-like weather (it’s supposed be up to 80ºF (27ºC)), here’s a boy on his way to go fishing. I think he might just be dressed up as Huckleberry Fin or Tom Sawyer.

Of course, depending on where you live, he’d be mighty cold walking barefoot to Trick or Treat!

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.

    This an adorable little boy. I agree with Susan that he could be Huck Finn.

    Big OOPS Susan. But… it happens. I too work a lot in the wee hours.

    Thanks for the pattern. It’s a cutie. Mistakes happen. =) I did that with the Funk & Wagnall’s Encyclopedia in a teacher discussion once. Red face.

    It could be Huckleberry Finn or more likely Tom Sawyer.
