Tiny Treasures – Stage 3

Tiny Treasures was designed by  Liz Almond  and the chart is a free download from Blackwork Journey. This is where I was up to last time.

Stage 2

Claire really pushed the boat out and suggested adding 8 more boxes for this stage. My boat almost sank but I managed….just LOL.

Stage 3

Here’s a close-up view.

I’m much happier with the green now but I’m still adding a lot more stitching than the chart shows. I’m committed to stitching the whole lot more densely (now that I’ve started) or the finished piece won’t look balanced. Thankfully, the designer encourages stitchers to do their own thing. My version is definitely “inspired by” and I’m really pleased Claire found the free chart for me to play around with.

About the SAL

Please note this SAL is not accepting any more new members until further notice but this is what it’s all about anyway. This SAL (Stitch Along) is slightly different to other SALs in that we don’t all stitch the same design at the same rate. We choose ONE unfinished project, or ONE new one, and show progress of its completion over a series of three weekly updates. There are no deadlines and no set amount to stitch. The result is that the space in our drawers full of WIPs (works in progress) is gradually being freed up to store lots of new crafty goodness. It’s surprising how much motivation I’ve gained from being in this SAL.

    Looks like a good idea to enlarge the whole project. It makes it more interesting and shows off your own designs. I think the green is showing up much better than when you first started.
