Smalls SAL – March 2016 Check-In

Hello, Smalls Stitchers! It is the final Thursday (and final day) of March, which means it is time for the monthly Smalls SAL check-in.


If you are wondering what this little stitch-along is all about, you can find all the details here. But, in a nut shell, you stitch and finish one small design every month (you decide how small is small), and head over here on the last Thursday of the month to share a link to your blog post about your finish.

Byzantium Ornament 2, designed by Teresa Wentzler

Byzantium Ornament 2, designed by Teresa Wentzler

This month I finished up yet another one of Teresa Wentzler’s Byzantium Ornaments (also known as Christmas Ornaments or Stain Glass Ornaments). For those keeping track, this is ornament #2 on the charts. Like the others, it is just covered in beads. Normally, beading is not my favourite thing, but I love how they add so much glamour to these ornaments.

Now it is your turn. What did you stitch this month? As always, I can’t wait to see. I get so much joy and inspiration from looking at all your finishes. Head on down near the bottom of this post and add your link using the little form. Be sure to link to your check-in post, not to the front page of you blog. (You should use the post’s permalink.) The link list will remain open to new entries until midnight Eastern time on April 7th, 2016.

While you are here, please take some time to visit some of the other participants and leave comments. I promise that you will see some amazing finishes, and you may even discover a great new blog or two.

Next Month’s Check-In: April’s check-in will take place on Thursday, April 28th. Just think, by then you will have at least four finishes done! That’s pretty amazing.

Happy stitching!

    I love your TW ornie and the beads absolutely do enhance the beauty. April is a Five Friday month so maybe I will actually start one. That was my plan at the beginning of the year anyway!
