French Sheepie, TUSAL and Halloweenie mumbles

Another sheepie finish yesterday afternoon, instead of having a flurry of finishing, which was my intent, I sorted out piles of charts and found a few Halloween charts I'd like to stitch and one or two sheepie charts that just may get started soonish.
This sheepie is the French Sheep chart and the border gave me the irits, which is why I put it down over a month ago.  However, when I picked it up this weekend, the border just fell into place.  Don't you just love finishes like that?

I have picked up a new Halloween chart to stitch - Halloween Magic, by Carriage House Samplings - shouldn't take too long. 
I do hope that next Sunday I can get a move onto a flurry of well overdue finshes.

Here is my T.U.S.A.L. offering for this month...

Yes the jar is there.. AND there is some white in there...however, a bit more black is creeping in.  Also in the picture is my very early Christmas Present from my girlfriend.... a bale stencil - most probably not so old and I could have had one that said SHEEP, but the LAMBS is so much more interesting.  This will end up on the pantry door in the kitchen, I'll be on the lookout for one that says BACON to go on the other door.
Also in the pic, leaning up against the wall is my 'Martha's Sampler' - it did get slightly damaged in the February Floods, as it was on the floor at the time, but I have resolved myself to accepting that has now become part of it's history.  I really must pull my finger out and chart it properly to share with you all.

How is your T.U.S.A.L. going?

Lovely sheepie. I don't have a TUSAL - I have a TUTUSAL - Totally Useless TUSAL as I didn't have a blog in January I couldn't play the game.
I still have a jar of ORTS though all ready for next year! I'm going to stuff an ornament with them this year.
