Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #94

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #94

Dave and I, our middle daughter and son went to see Moana on the weekend. Have you been?

If not, I highly recommend it. I loved every minute and want to go see it again while it’s still in theatres!

From a very young age, Moana is drawn to the ocean. It calls to her.

And while I have no grand mission to complete as Moana does, I too feel that call. I am never happier than when I’m near or in the ocean.

So yesterday when I was looking through my files for a pattern to share with you this week, I knew I wanted to find something with an ocean theme.

These three sea horses look like they’re ready for an undersea adventure.

If you need more ocean creatures to accompany them on their adventure, check out this adorable fish or this pattern with a starfish, sea snail and seahorse.


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.

    Seeing the seahorses makes me recall what one of the grandchildren thought when he saw a photo of one. He asked if they were dragons. Never thought about it, but they do sort of look prehistoric.
