TUSAL (Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long)


My ORTs jar started off with threads that I had in
a bin beside by my chair in the family room.
Thanks to my new cyber friend, Connie, I've joined the "Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long" for 2012. Check it out at Daffycat.  The object of TUSAL is to collect all your bits of thread (also known as ORTs - Old Tattered Threads) from your stitching for a whole year.  It's a totally easy idea that won't require me to do anything I'm not already doing, except that now I'll put the threads into a glass jar and photograph it once in a while. I've got an old fashioned candy jar that I'll use to collect my threads.  It will be a real challenge not to dip into the thread stash to make some funky greeting cards, but I'll do my best to stay out of it.  It'll be really interesting to see how much thread collects in a year.   Since I've already got some thread collected I've decided to get a head start (there's no prize for having the most,  so it's not cheating :D don't worry.)
My ORTs jar in it's new place of honour in my studio.

  1. This is a really cool idea. As soon as I read it, I wished I hadn't cleaned up all the bits and pieces of ribbon and trimming from my major Christmas manufacturing projects. Oh, well... I can start at the beginning of the new year. I don't know if I'll officially join the group though.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.
