For the past several weeks, I’ve been sharing an adorable set of children dressed up for Halloween. I still have one more sweet child to share with you but I’m going to save that for next Monday on the 31st for two reasons.
The first being that with Halloween only a week away, I thought you might like a couple of patterns that will be quick and fun to stitch.
On the original vintage Workbasket pattern this jack o’lantern and bat were the small versions. With a bit of computer magic Dave enlarged them to give you two more sizes to choose from.
The pumpkin and bat motifs in this simple Jack O’Lanterns and Bats Embroidery Pattern are perfect for adding fun stitcheries to Halloween items.

And the second reason I’m saving the last child until next week is that she’s the perfect transition from Halloween to the upcoming holiday season! So I hope you’ll come back for that!
Now on to this week’s Stitchery Link Party!
STITCHERY LINK PARTY #81
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.
