The Summer Magical Mystery SAL 2020 - The Back and Final Post

Welcome to the back of the Summer Mystery SAL! It always feels weird to say that but that's what you are getting this time - the optional back that I make for those of you that want to make a two sided biscornu, ornament, pincushion, or perhaps something else I haven't thought of. I'm also making this my final post for this mystery - other than the Temperature SAL later today I'm taking the weekend off - first time since I started the Mini Magical Mysteries back in March! Monday I'll be back a bit more rested than usual (hopefully) with the tenth Mini Magical Mystery SAL! As I said yesterday I hope you have had fun with this mystery and I can't wait to see what you do with yours! If anything, as sometimes fully stitched is fully finished!
This is what mine looks like after stitching part fourteen - hopefully the last bit of pattern was a nice surprise for all of you!
This is mine finished into a simple pillow - made slightly less simple by the beads I used...
Which you can see better here! I didn't stitch the back as I wasn't up to it and wanted to have it finished for this post.
I used four colours of seed bead with the same finish so they give the same amount of sparkle. They are (from left to right) TR-11-175 "Trans-Rainbow Lemon", TR-11-164 "Trans-Rainbow Lime Green", TR-11-174B "Trans-Rainbow Hyacinth", TR-11-165B "Trans-Rainbow Siam Ruby".

If you wish to see which fabric and threads I used look here

For the Back you will need all of the colours - stitch count as per the pattern.

You can find the pattern here

I do not expect anyone to be able to be up to date at all times during the SAL - you need to eat and sleep at the very least so expect to be "behind" part - if not all - of the time! It's part of the nature of this type of SAL for this to happen, so being "behind" is the normal state of affairs. If you are a slow stitcher expect to finish "after" the SAL has "finished" - though tbh the SAL is always available and new people find the patterns on a regular basis so it's never really over.

On all social media sites the tag to use is:  #MagicalMysterySAL - let's make the world see what we are up to!

PS: Don't forget you can ask all your questions in the comments below and there is a Facebook group to share your stitching results etc. which you can find here

Have a great weekend and see you Monday for the start of the next Mini Magical Mystery SAL!


  1. This one is so pretty! I regret not stitching along with this one, but I really couldn't fit in in...someday!
