TUSAL - 8/25/14

I have missed the last few months -

Of this FUN game -

Due to "circumstances" -

But now I'm back -

So here we go - ;))


Once again I have joined a bunch of other stitchers -

In Daffycat’s TUSAL - HERE -

It's a Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long - ;))

To play the game -

I have to fill my glass container -

With saved thread clippings -

Or ORTS - Old Ratty Threads -

Fabric trimmings -

Stitching cast-offs -

And then -

On (or about) the New Moon -

Take a picture of the ORTS in my jar -

Post it to my blog -

With a link back to her TUSAL post - HERE -

Label the Totally Useless posts with “TUSAL” -

And then visit her blog and comment on her ORT report for that month's TUSAL - ;))

It's EASY -


And -

It's FUN!! - ;))

This year I decided NOT to empty my jar each time -

Maybe a year-to-date accumulation of ORTs -

Will make it look like actually DID something - ;))


This photo may look like I didn't add much -

Since the last one I posted - HERE -

But I assure you that I HAVE added some ORTS -

From the latest round of blocks -

But because the thread that I'm using to piece is "beige" -

It doesn't show that well in the photo - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Is it cheating if I send you my ORTS to put in your jar? Right now I have a lot of red, white & blue threads, a few silver and golds.. Yep, been doing some machine embroidery and I keep all those clippings...

    1. Haha - probably - ;)) But you could always get your own glass jar - take a photo - and link up to join us in the FUN - it's easy - go check out the link to Daffycat's post - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
