2014 Smalls SAL

Smalls: pin cushions, needlebooks, book marks, biscornus, ornaments, etc. I think there isn’t a stitch around that doesn’t, at least occasionally, enjoy stitching smalls. In 2014, I’ll be hosting  the Smalls SAL, and I hope you will join me!



Just like the Ornament SAL, the rules are simple.

  1. Stitch a small every month. You get to decide what a small is for you. 50×50 stitches? 100×100 stitches? It’s up to you. You just need to be able to get it done by the check-in day. (WIPs that you complete in time for the check-in are great too!)
  2. Post a picture of your completed small (stitching done, but the actual finishing is optional) on the last Wednesday of every month.
  3. Hop over here to my blog and add a comment to the current month’s check in post to get an entry into the end of the year draw.

Also, please consider using the above graphic to link back to this page so other people can find out about the SAL and join in the fun.


The dates for check in are as follows:

  • January 29
  • February 26
  • March 26
  • April 30
  • May 28
  • June 25
  • July 30
  • August 27
  • September 24
  • October 29
  • November 28
  • December 31


There will be a draw held on January 7th, 2015 for all the participants in the SAL. To enter, just leave a comment on the check in posts with a link to your ornament of the month. For every month you post your pictures and leave a comment you will get an entry into the draw. And I would love it if you would link back to the Smalls SAL page. (It’s permanent home is at this location.)

What will the prize be? A surprise, of course! But it will be stitching relate! If you’d like to donate something towards the prize please send me an email. (And thank you very much!)

Need a Reminder?

Want to make sure you never forget a check in post? Sign up for my mailing list, and I will send out an email every month after I post up the check in post. Don’t worry, I will never sell, share, trade or otherwise abuse your email address. Heck, I’ll be doing the mailing list manually!

If you signed up for reminders for the Ornament SAL for this year, you will need to sign up for reminders again. As I promised, I will be deleting all emails from the 2013 list as soon as I draw for the prize.


Interested in joining up? Just add you link to the list below. If you can’t get the form to work, please send me an email and I will add you manually.

    Sorry to be a pain but how do I get the Smalls SAL 2014 icon as above. I have tried copying the link info but I don’t get the graphic. I really am not very technology savvy. Sorry

    I umm, created a new badge so it fit the dimensions of the other badges I am using. I hope you don’t mind?

    OK, I’ve signed up but just wanted to check that we will need to leave an actual comment next year rather than just add our link to the post like this year?
