Previous NFSAL SALs

First I will explain more about the NFSAL. I'm going to shamelessly copy parts of the post that Carla made over on Deviant Art in 2019 (with permission of course!), and with a few additions, to help explain things as she is a big part of what the NFSAL is and has become over the years.

What is Neglected Floss Stitch Along?  It is a wonderful way for everyone to utilise that floss that has been hanging around your stash.  For some, it probably bothers you just a tiny bit that you have these flosses that never get used or there is just a tiny bit left of some speciality floss that you may never use again from a kit. Here is the best way to ensure you use every one of your stashed flosses at least once, or finish them off entirely!  Gifted floss, those bobbins that sit quietly in your floss boxes, bags, or drawer never getting used or are forgotten; this stitch along is a lovely way to get that floss used.
  • The first year it was an anything goes thing when it came to colour.
  • The second year had an optional key so that you had an idea of where to go with the colours if you liked them.
  • The third year was something very different for the NFSAL; not only were there twelve biscornu/pincushion patterns BUT there was also an optional whole year frame in case you'd like to do a larger thing.
  • The fourth year boasted a new pattern every month and each month's pattern was a different size and design. The patterns could be square, diamond, round, just about any shape you might imagine.
This year we will be going back to the way things were done in the third year... with a difference! Not only will there be the option to do either a full year frame or the individual patterns but you will also be given not one, but two single pattern sized borders so you could make each month's pattern individually but then bigger!

Before 2019 the NFSAL was hosted on Deviant Art not on my blog so those links will take you there.
