Tiny Treasures – Stage 11

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 10

Me and Claire agreed to finish the rest of the flowers and outer border this time. If you take a look at her opened out version you’ll see how big it is.

Stage 11

Just 8 boxes left to fill. I can feel a Happy Dance coming on!

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 11th April 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. I am wondering how you will finish this Avis. It is going to cost an arm and a leg to have it framed. xx

    • I sometimes do my own framing but this time it might be finished as a wall-hanging, backed with fabric and a binding added. I still haven’t decided.

  2. It is lovely and as I just mentioned to Claire – the borders are gorgeous on their own. Happy Dance next time.

    shine your dancing shoes, Avis, so we can do our happy dancing next time!

  5. Just beautiful!!!!! I’m ready for that dance party 🙂

  6. This looks like a very enjoyable/easy project to make 🙂 Lovely update

  7. So close to that happy dance, and finding out what you’ll be doing next 🙂

    • The jury is out on what I’ll be doing next. I’ve had a look through my stash several times and pulled out something different each time. All I know is that I don’t want to start more than one stitching project so I’d better be sure of my choice 🙂

    How different it looks in the purple. Best of luck with the next three weeks’ stitching.

    I always enjoy seeing your progress on this!

  10. Yes indeed! Such a beautiful project. I so enjoy comparing your color choices!

    • I looked on Google Images for colour inspiration before I started stitching this and there’s very few photos. I would’ve thought more people would want to stitch it as it can easily be adapted to any size.

  11. This is lovely and getting so close to a finish. Lovely work!

  12. Beautiful! This will be my next project as soon as I have figured out what color to use 🙂

  13. This will be lovely when it is finished – just love all the intricate little shapes. The little tulips are gorgeous.

  14. You are almost there, Avis! What a treat it will be for us to see it finished next time.

  15. Both of you make me want to do this project:)

    Beautiful work on your Blackwork. This is a wonderful way to make progress on a larger piece. Do you think you will be accepting new people at any point this year?

    It is looking fantastic Avis. Can’t wait to see what you will decide to do with it when you have finished happy dancing!

    • I’m not sure what to do with it. It’ll go on the wall at some point but I don’t know whether I’ll frame it or make a wall hanging. No hurry 🙂

  18. Stunning do close to a finish

  19. I’ve got that downloaded. I’ve done several of Ms Almond’s designs and have enjoyed them all. I love the simplicity of the blackwork. Designing some of my own at the moment, at least until I run out of graphing paper.

  20. Hope you’re polishing your dancing shoes ready for the big finish! Looks great 🙂

  21. Very pretty, I must share my own black work piece soon
