Have you joined any SALs?

Do you like SALs? Do they motivate you or stress you out?  My problem is that I am involved in too many.  It's somewhat of a challenge and I try my hardest to keep up but often get side tracked by something new.  Some may call this stitchers ADD. I call it enjoying my much loved, often addictive hobby.  Here is the Halloween Mystery SAL from The Primitive Hare.  I have manage to keep up with this one but this isn't to most up to date photo.  It is stitched on Old Salem linen with DMC threads.
I have many more new starts and a few updates and now that the boys are back in school I hope to be back with regular updates.  I would love to hear about any SALs you are working on just in case I missed any!   Happy Stitching!

No SALs for me I'm afraid - with 3 children 6 and under, I can't commit to anything! I will continue to just trundle along at my own pace until they have fled the nest! Lol. This particular SAL is lovely - I adore Halloween stitching. :0)

I always have too many things going at once, so no SAL for me.

It's called Startitis. lol
I have that too. :)
I prefer smaller SAL's because I don't have a lot of time to stitch.
Great progress on the PH SAL.

I'm torn with this one. I like SALs as in stitch along with someone else on the same pattern. However, I don't like mystery SALs (after only one experience. I don't like not knowing the entire design because then I might not have bought it if I had known. It's hard. However, the new Lizzie Kate one seems promising!

I'm in this same SAL but hung up on the first section yet! Then I went and joined an exchange. Haha. I need another SAL, mystery or otherwise, like I need a hole in my head!

I adore the "idea" of SALs,,,but sadly I fail at them on man levels :/

I have never done a SAL maybe I should try one sometime. Love the pattern so far.

I've joined a SAL here and there. It doesn't stress me out. In the last two I've participated in, I was the one who finished my projects and the other person didn't. It was their idea for a SAL, lol.

You picked a great fabric - the white really shows up well! This looks like a great pattern. Can't wait to see it finished.

I'm doing the Frosted Pumpkin "Mysterious Halloween Town" and the "Whacky Witches" from Cloudsfactory. I enjoy SALs for the camaraderie on facebook and instagram but I feel a lot of pressure to keep up.

Such a great SAL you are stitching on. I love SALs because it's motivating to know that there are so many other stitchers working on the same design. But I'm a bit reluctant and try not to join more than two SALs at the same time. But that's not very difficult any longer because most SALs are offered through Facebook these days - and I'm not on FB.

I have become addicted to SAL recently too. This is one of mine, I love it. Your's is looking very good.
