Tiny Treasures – Stage 4

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 3

I haven’t done as much for this update but I’m pleased it’s coming along. Here’s where I’m up to now.

Stage 4

There’s a tiny bit of the border hiding. It’s rolled under the frame on the right hand side.

I’ve been busy doing loads of jobs outside in the garden recently and there’s still lots to do. It’s good to be out in the fresh air but it doesn’t leave much time for stitching. The daylight hours are getting shorter so there’ll be more time for crafting soon. Maybe I should get some quilt tops out to quilt. It’s a while since I’ve done that and it’s a nice cold evening activity.

Please check out what everyone else has been up to by clicking their names below. We live all over the world so you may need to allow for time differences. Posting takes place every third Sunday, local time. Our next updates will be posted on the 15th November 2020.

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.

    You may not have done a lot of stitching lately but it is coming along beautifully. Long dark nights will have us all crafting again.

    This is looks so pretty. The changing seasons sometime encroach on our stitching and sometimes give us more time. I like the idea of working on some hand-quilting.

    • I’ve only ever done machine quilting. I’d love to try hand quilting but I just don’t have the time. There’s a link to my quilting blog on the right of this page if you want to see what I get up to but I haven’t posted for a long time.

  3. It’s looking beautiful !!!

    I’m really loving how our two versions are looking so different. Yours is ever so elegant!

  5. This project is coming along so nicely! I’m still in love with your colors. The weather here has been nice as well so I’ve been getting out hiking with the hubby and gardening.

  8. Your project is so delicate and calming to look at. The detail in this is amazing and you make it look so easy with your perfect stitching ~ Stay well

  9. I love all the detailed stitches (and have visited the site – lots of lovely designs). Dark cold nights = Lots of stitching.

  10. Looking wonderful Avis! I can relate to getting all of the outside stuff done 🙂

  11. So many details, and they are just delicate! These really are incredible pieces to stitch!

  12. It is looking so beautiful! I love the black and purple together! I am finding my window for stitching is getting shorter as it gets darker so much earlier

  13. I really like this embroidery! I´m gonna stitch one myself some day in the future 🙂

  14. It’s perfect and great, Avis!
    Hugs, Carmela

    Your stitchy progress looks good considering you’ve also been busy in the garden! I need to get out there myself and clean the flower beds up and mulch them for the winter.

  16. So delicate and love the purple in the pattern border and the subtle hints of it amongst the black xx
