Smalls SAL 2016 Wrap-Up

Hello, Stitchy Friends! Long time no talk. The year started out great, but I’ve spent the last week terribly under the weather. Unfortunately that meant that I haven’t had time to take care of the last few things required to wrap up the Smalls SAL 2016 until today.

First, I want to say thank you again, so very much, for taking part in the Smalls SAL. We had 376 different check-ins, that means at least 376 different finishes. Actually, there were many, many more than 376 finishes since a lot of you shared more than one small each month. Congratulations! That is a whole lot of stitching!

Like last year, there was an ebb and flow to participation. We started off the year strong with 56 check-ins, and then there was a slow decrease all the way through to August with a low of 20 check-ins, and we bounced back through to the end of the year.

Okay, now I know you are all waiting to hear who won the end of the year draw. The winner is:

Brenda of Time 2 Xstitch

The random number generator selected her check-in for her two beautiful finishes from April. Congratulations, Brenda!

And now on to 2017. The Smalls SAL is returning, and will take place on the final Friday of every month. The first check-in will take place on January 27th. I can’t wait to see what everyone has been working on!

    I know I missed some of the official check in posts. I didn’t miss the finishes but I put off posting until it was too late. Totally my fault. I’m really hoping to do better this year though. Thanks so much for hosting again. Congrats to Brenda!!
