Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #82

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #82

[social_warfare]Happy Halloween!!

Are you ready for all the little trick or treaters that will be arriving this evening?

Yesterday, Dave and I went out and bought more candy… just in case.

I do this every year. We buy candy ahead of time when it’s on sale and then I decide we’d better get more so that we don’t run out.

But this year, since it’s our first Halloween at our new home, I wanted to make doubly sure.

I love seeing all the little ones (and not so little ones) dressed up in their costumes. Which brings me to this week’s vintage Workbasket pattern.

I’ve saved this sweet angel until last. It’s the perfect pattern to transition us from Halloween to getting ready for the holidays!

Only 54 days until Christmas!!

 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.

    Oh, I so love this sweet angel! These patterns remind me of days I looked through my Gram’s Workbasket magazine. This will be another great one to do for my small quilt hanger. Sure wish I had more hours in the day to get all I want done !!
    Thanks for the great inspiration. Happy Stitching , MaryLou
