Before I get into my SAL postings, Pull the Other Thread is hosting a Mega Mini Month Madness SAL during October. The link should take you to the sign-up page if you're interested. All you have to do is stitch on a mini (ornament size or smaller) piece and post once each week in October you don't have to do five different pieces just post your progress each week. There will be a drawing for a gift card at the end for everyone that participates and follows the rules, While I am recuperating (6 to 8 weeks of no commuting - I will be teleworking as I can) I will actually have time to stitch so I may sign up for this one.
The first SAL is TUSAL. TUSAL (Totally Useless Stitch Along) is hosted by It's Daffycat. If the links don't work, the buttons along the sides should take you to the information pages for all the SALs mentioned. TUSAL asks that you collect all those little snippits of thread in a pretty jar and take a picture on the new moon each month. I had more additions to my collection than I expected given my relative lack of stitching recently. My jar is shown in front of Chatelaine's Secret Victorian Garden.
The next SAL post due is the Smalls SAL. Heather at Stitching Lotus is hosting this SAL. Another easy one - stitch on a small and post the last Wednesday of each month. I did finish a small this month but it was leftover from last month's non-finish month and I didn't start another one.

For September I had:
Carry over: $200
September Budget: $ 25
September Purchases: $ 0
Balance Forward: $225
I had no new starts from stash, but I did work on Red House in Winter, Holly and Hearts Sampler, Santa's Magic, Spring in the Air, and Secret Victorian Garden. I do expect to have a new start for October's report, but I am not sure what.
Last, but not least is the Just Nan SAL. This one seems to have fallen apart but I will continue to post as I am enjoying pulling out some of the Just Nan's that I have had kitted and stashed for years. I am currently working on Spring in the Air. While I didn't get a lot done this month, I did get two of the over-1 pansies completed, so I am happy with my progress.
