Tiny Treasures – Stage 10

It’s time for another SAL update. Tiny Treasures was designed by  Liz Almond  and the original chart is a free download from Blackwork Journey. This is where I was up to last time.

Stage 9

Another four boxes and 5 flowers have been added.

Stage 10 

My knitting is finished so that’s no longer a distraction from Tiny Treasures. However, we’ve had lots of lovely sunshine during the past couple of weeks and the garden needed attention. It would’ve been a shame to stay indoors and miss out on all that vitamin D wouldn’t it? The garden looks so much tidier!

One of our long term members Sue has sadly decided to leave the SAL. I’m sure she’ll still be crafting so pop over to her blog and see what she’s up to when you get a chance.

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 21st March 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, Avis !! I love the little tulips !!
    Hugs, Carmela

  2. Another beautiful selection, I think the mini tulip flowers are my favourites, I love seeing what each row reveals! xx

  3. Liz Almond created a ‘gemstone of gorgeous’ with this design. I love the use of just two colors for this piece 🙂

    • It would also look lovely in one or many colours. I think Liz is extrememely generous to offer her chart for free. Me and Claire both completed the blackwork called Pentecost 2 from the same site a long time ago. I made mine all in purple. It’s in the right hand side menu of this page if you’re interested.

    those “flowers” really pop ^^

  5. Another nice gift of progress there, Avis! How exciting to be able to get out in the garden. They are talking 60 here towards the end of the week, so we may actually have some spring this year, makes me want to get out and dig, but ai best settle for starting the indoor seeds!

    • I’ve been digging today. Getting ready to lay some turf on a shady area of the garden. I’ve tried to grow many things in that space and the only things that are happy there is ornamental grasses which I don’t like. I’ve pulled out hundreds of seedlings! I wish I could use it for veg because the soil is fantastic but it’s going to have to be easy maintenance for that patch. Seems like a waste to me.

    I spent time looking at the wide variety of connecting flowers. They are all so very pretty. Enjoy the garden work. We are still mired in cold, cloudy weather.

    • I hope you get some nice weather soon. We’ve had several days of sunshine and cold wind here. I can’t remember having so many days of sunshine in a row before.

    I love the tulip box, so sweet! Oh I too need to clean up the garden! I have my work cut out for me for sure!! Glad you were able to enjoy some sunshine.

  10. Lovely Avis

  11. Beautiful! I don’t blame you if the outdoors is calling you. I wish it would get above 35 degrees here!

  12. If you have done some gardening, some knitting and four boxes, you are doing very well! You can’t miss the opportunity in the early spring garden.

  13. I love the tulips, a timely reminder that spring is on it’s way!

  14. Lots of progress and beautiful as ever.

  15. Lovely progress, as always.
    We’ve had lovely sunshine too recently. Hubby has the week off now and of course it’s raining. So much for getting him working in the garden LOL

  16. It just gets prettier with every row you add!

  17. Great progress! I´m impressed of all the different flowers and squares! Are there not two the same?

    • They’re all different. I’ve changed a lot of the boxes and most of the flowers and I must admit I’m finding it difficult not to repeat. The original chart has all different designs as well.

  18. Beautiful, as always. I also love the little tulips, and the “beveled edges”, oh and the spiky little quilt block stars, and… and … and!
