Tiny Treasures – Stage 6

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 5

Here’s where I’m up to now after filling the 4 empty boxes and adding 10 more flowers and borders.

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.

    I didn’t realize how long this piece is. It is pretty.

    • Yes, we’re just over half way now so it’s long. There’s a square version of the chart available as well but we both chose the rectangular one this time.

    • Hi Carmela, I’ve just seen your beautiful sampler is now almost finished. Just the finishing touches and some back stitching to do. Maybe you’ll be Happy Dancing next time 🙂 Tiny Treasures has 13 rows of 4 boxes. I’ve completed 7 rows so far. There’s also a square design available but we both decided to do the rectangular one.

  9. This will be the most amazing dresser scarf if you choose to use it that way. There’s something so elegant about the simplicity of this, yet it is so intricate, quite the juxtaposition!

    • I agree it would look lovely on a dresser. At the moment I’m thinking it’ll be hanging vertically on the wall. I’ve got the ideal place in the hallway. I’ll probably change my mind many times between now and the Happy Dance 🙂

  10. When I saw that you’re just over the halfway mark I wondered whether you would turn this into a table runner. It’s gorgeous whatever you end up doing with it!

    This is a big sampler! Your stitching is lovely.

  12. Half way, wow! It is going to be a beautiful creation that deserves to be hung and admired.

    • Yes, I think it’ll be going on the wall. Daylight hours are short at the moment so I’m doing more knitting than stitching but Spring is just around the corner. Wishful thinking 😉

  14. Such a delicate pattern to stitch. You must have this on a stitching frame? I don’t see a wrinkle at all. 🙂

  15. Well done! Not much left now, is it? 🙂

  16. It’s beautiful, very elegant too

  17. It’s gorgeous! Are you doing the boxes in a different order to Claire? I’m sure that bottom row is different, or is it just that the colours make it seem that way?

    Reply
    • I’ve mixed the boxes up and added to or changed most of them. The flowers in the borders are mostly just me taking the thread for a walk rather than working from the chart. I kept the outline but changed most of the insides. It happened because the thread I chose for the boxes wasn’t showing very well so I made the stitching more dense. Before I knew it I was changing everything. No wonder you see different designs 🙂

  18. This is a beautiful design and will look amazing as a vertical wall hanging too.

  19. Thanks for unrolling it to show off all you’ve done — it’s glorious and I’m sure you’ll find the perfect spot for it.
