Smalls SAL – April 2016 Check-In

Hello, Smalls Stitchers! Welcome to the April 2016 check-in. I apologize for not getting this up until mid-morning my time (which seems very late to all you international stitchers I’m sure.) Unfortunately, there was a problem with the post scheduling, and it didn’t get posted when it should have. :/


Thank you again, very much, for being part of my little stitch along. I absolutely love looking at everyone’s smalls every month. You all provide me with so much inspiration and motivation.

Byzantium Ornament 5, designed by Teresa Wentzler

Byzantium Ornament 5, designed by Teresa Wentzler

This month I stitched yet another ornament from Teresa Wentzlerโ€™s Byzantium Ornaments (also known as Christmas Ornaments or Stain Glass Ornaments). This one is chart number 5. Unfortunately, I picked the wrong blend for the second round of satin stitches out from the middle (they should be much lighter in colour), but I decided to leave it since I think it looks nice the way it is. I’m not happy, though, with the gold cord around the eyelets. I’m debating ripping it out of all the ornaments and replacing it with Petite Treasure Braid.

What did you stitch this month? I honestly can’t wait to see. Please head down near the bottom of this post and add your link to the list. Please be sure to use the permalink for your Smalls SAL check-in post, not the link for the front page of your blog. Also, please use a picture of your small as your graphic. Thank you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The list will stay open for new entries until about midnight Eastern time on May 5th. You have got lots of time to still get your entry in! Remember: for each month that you share a finished small you get one entry into the end of the year draw.

Next Month – Next month everything will go smoothly and the check-in post will go up very early in the morning my time on May 26th.

Thank you, again, very much for taking part in the Smalls SAL. And, if you aren’t already a Smalls SAL stitcher but would like to learn more about it and perhaps join in, head over here for all the details.

    Beautiful stitched design Heather, it will be interesting to see the difference in the stitches around the eyelets if you decide to use the different braid.

    Beautiful stitching Heather – I think it looks perfect! It will be wonderful to see all of these together at the end of the year.

  11. I just love your Byzantine ornament. They are all so pretty. I’m thinking of adding them to my stitching list (for myself).

    Lovely work being shown and I finally can link all of my line of smalls with the Red thread just finished and framed.
    Am hoping to start on Wee Spring this month.
