Tiny Treasures – Stage 7

Happy Christmas to everyone if you celebrate it and best wishes for 2021. This very strange year has flown by!

Now for the SAL update….

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 6

I’ve added another four boxes and five flowers. The outer border has been extended by a couple of inches past the edge of the photo because I just kept stitching until the pieces of thread were all used up.

Stage 7Please 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 17th January 2021.

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.

  1. Beautiful progress!

  2. You always make such steady progress Avis. x

    • I usually stitch for a few days on the SAL project straight after the SAL update and then get on with something else for the remainder of the 3 weeks. It works for me 🙂

  3. I am always amazed at how much you get done in a three week period! Tiny Treasures is looking so very nice. Happiness and health to you and your family!

  4. Great progress once again on this charming piece. Your work is always so gorgeous 🙂

  6. This is so gorgeous – how far from the end are you?

  7. Gorgeous work Avis, such a beautiful project. Thanks for keeping us all going this year and happy new year when it comes! xx

  8. More beautiful patterns, I could look at this every day and never tire of it,

    I love the stitching in the bottom left box. Then again all of the boxes are beautiful.

  10. I love looking at all the different patterns in this piece! I’m also happy that there are a lot of rows left so I can keep seeing it every three weeks. Thanks so much for running this stitch-a-long; I get so much inspiration from it! Best wishes for a wonderful 2021.

    • Thank you. It’s really easy to organise our lovely group of crafters. The variety of projects always surprises me. There’s something for everyone to admire 🙂

  11. Every time I see this I marvel at how big it seems. It’s a wonderful piece of work (in both colorways!).

  12. Those boxes are gorgeous!

  13. I always love to look at this work. In a very selfish way I am glad it is taking you a while to finish ~ I have more SALs to see it! Thanks for organising us over the year, Avis. It has been so good to have the routine and deadlines over this crazy year. Here’s to 2021!

    • I could probably finish this in a couple of weeks if I tried but I like to do other things at the same time. It’s been a pleasure to organise the SAL. We’ve been going for quite a few years now. All the best for 2021!

  14. Loads more progress – but not so tiny now! Looks lovely.

  16. This is a lovely project! I´m thinking of stitching this as my next project!!! 🙂

  17. More lovely boxes. This is so pretty!
    Thank you for another year of the SAL. It’s kept me motivated and given me so many gorgeous projects to admire 🙂
