TUSAL - 9/16/12

I have joined hundreds of stitchers in Daffycat’s TUSAL -

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 the New Moon -

Take a picture of the ORTS in my jar -

Post it to my blog -

And label the Totally Useless posts with “TUSAL” -

Done - done - done - done - and done - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. Here I was struggling with what those initials stood for yesterday! Now I am reminded "oh THAT is what she meant."

    1. SORRY about that!! BOB and I HATE trying to figure out all of those dumb initials. I'm working on a post to vent my frustration - and just have to decipher a few more before I post my rant - stay tuned - ;))

  2. I have a jar of thread and I'm not even playing along. If I drop that thread in the trash, the dog picks it out and spreads it around the room, thus, a jar on my table. Last spring I put it out for the birds to use and in another few months it will be that time again.

    1. That's a TERRIFIC use for those threads!! I was going to use mine to make "thread bowls" - although some probably would say that that defeats the whole purpose of the sew-a-long and makes the "useless" part "useful". I can't see perfectly good thread go to waste - and love the idea of yours being "strictly for the birds" - ;))


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 The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.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 - ;))
