Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #93

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #93

Are you like me and feeling like you just want winter to be over already?

The weather has been so weird!

Last week, we got dumped on with snow. I spent 40 minutes shoveling so Dave would be able to get in the driveway when he got home from work. (The snow plow had deposited a huge drift when it came through.)

Dave took over shoveling when he got home but he was barely finished when it started to rain and by the same time the following day there was hardly any snow left.

It has been cloudy and gloomy, with only the occasional break in the clouds to keep us from complete despair!

To fight the winter blues, today thought I’d inject a bit of summer sunshine with this lovely vintage Workbasket pattern for two hummingbirds and a rose.

***************Stitchery Link Party ButtonWELCOME TO STITCHERY LINK PARTY


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.

    The arrival back of the migrating hummers is always so welcomed. The stitchery is so sweet.

    I love all the seasons. We haven’t had all that much snow here, but Winter is barely a month old and I am looking forward to enjoying the rest of it. I know, I am the odd one out on this. I love those doves.
