Snow Gentleman and Snow Lady Embroidery Patterns

Snow Gentleman and Snow Lady Embroidery Patterns

As this is the last Monday before Christmas, I’m gifting you not one but two vintage Workbasket patterns.

This sweet snow gentleman and his lady really do belong together.

Dave has resized the originals so that you have three sizes of each to stitch.

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.

Never linked up to a link party before?

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 for these – they’d make great Christmas hand towels. I finally had something to link! Thanks to Dave for his help in making more sizes. That’s so nice of him!

    Thank you for the snowpeople patterns!

    Hope that you’re feeling better and stay migraine free. When I was married, I had a few that were brought on by my out-laws (that’s what my dad called my in-laws). Happily, I no longer have migraines or out-laws!! Hope that your Christmas is merry…..

    Good Monday Morning Sue, Mighty chilly here in Selkirk ,NY but the Holiday warmth is taking over and all is well.
    Again thank you so much for the opportunity to have copies of these vintage embroideries -can see myself sitting on the sofa at Gram’s looking through her Workbasket magazines and wanting to make so many things-big dreams for a 10 yr. old!!
    Want to wish you and yours the most Merry Christmas season and a New Year full of many Blessings.
    Happy Stitching , MaryLou

    Thank you so much. I suffered with migraines for years. Unless you get them no one knows how extremely painful they are. Good news as I got older they got better. I get a mild one that can be handled with Tylenol once in a while. Just relax and enjoy the holidays what gets done gets done. That’s good enough.
