2014 Blogging SAL

I thought I would do an update with blogging SAL's that have/are going on in 2013 and if they are continuing into 2014

First up is the Ornament SAL

Stitching Lotus posted this on October 30th

As for next year, I’ve had a lot of you contact me to say you are interested in another Ornament SAL. I’m wondering if, perhaps, a smalls SAL would work for everyone. I’d really, really love to stitch some TW smalls next year, very few of which are ornaments. Let me know what you think in the comments below, send me an email, or contact me on Twitter at @silverlotus152.

By the sounds of it this will continue but as a smalls SAL instead of just ornaments.  I think this is a great idea and will be joining in!

Next up is the Totally Useless Stitch-a-long (TUSAL)

In the past few years I have absolutely loved this SAL.  I confirmed with daffy-cat that she will be doing this again next year!   If you don't know, in this SAL you save your ORTS and post on your blog :)

Third up is the International Hermit and Stitching Weekend (IHSW)

Details from the post :

International Hermit and Stitch Weekend takes place every 3rd full weekend of each month, from Friday till Sunday. In our very busy and hectic lives, IHSW is a chance for us to squirrel some time away for ourselves and "Hermit and Stitch." It is a time set aside to take care of us and our love for stitching.

I emailed Joyszeroo and got confirmation that this will continue next year!

Another SAL is WIPocalypse.

This was started in 2012 with the end of the world looming over us.  How could we just leave our WIPs sitting unfinished?
Measi continued this in 2013 adding some monthly themes as well

I got confirmation from Melissa that this one will continue as well into 2014

Last on my list is Theme-a-licious

This one is theme based, with a different theme for each month.  We post on the 15th with progress pics and then again on the last day of the month.

Still waiting to see if this one is a go for next year.

What other blogging SAL's are out there?  which ones do you participate in?

Thanks for the info! Over at BAP Attack (sorry, no link) Claudette has been hosting the Turtle Trot SAL in which we picked 13 WIPs for 2013 to finish. I think I saw one blogger mention that this was to continue in 2014. It's been fun and I've made headway on my WIPs.

In 2014, I'll join TUSAL again and the Turtle Trot and that'll be it for me! At the end of the year, I'm finding myself forgetting which SAL goes with which posting date! I enjoyed it though.

There is a Just Nan SAL starting in 2014. If you would like to add that to your list it's hosted by Zeb and here is the link

Thanks for the mention! I should have sign-up and details for the Smalls SAL up by the end of next week.

I'll also be doing the TUSAL again and probably WIPocalypse. I skipped it this year, but did it last year and really enjoyed it.

I would have sworn I replied to you about Theme-a-licious, but I probably dreamed it!!! It will continue for next year! I hope to have details up by the end of the month.

Heh I think I've signed up to most of these, and am also running a new SAL themed around Just Nan XD
