Daffy's Stitchy Friends

April Was Totally Useless

Can I get an Amen to that post title? I did NOT get the house dusted. There is dog hair covering my floor. The kitchen floor is spotted with who-knows-what and the bathroom mirrors...well, that must be toothpaste. Useless, except for stitching! Woo...just check out this ORT jar:


Stuffed, I tell you! I'm gonna have to start packing these threads down. April was a great stitching month, all-in-all. I'm really enjoying this design. Have you guessed what it is yet?

This is Sisters & Best Friends' Fruit Salad Sampler "Pear."

I know Erin was the first to guess it correctly! I will have to send her a little treat for being so clever.

=^..^=

We want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your April 29th TUSAL post so we can come visit! If I hold a Totally Useless giveaway your comment will earn you an extra entry.

Wondering what a TUSAL is and why all these people are posting pictures of rubbish? Click here to learn more and join the fun!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I love your pear! I did a bit of stitching in April but actually, more dusting and decluttering -- not that you can actually SEE anything I have done! Hopefully May will be better!

Pam Tanner said...

Amen!!!! Try having burgundy carpeting in your family room with 3 dogs and a cat. As soon as I run the vacuum, at least 2 of the dogs throw themselves down on their backs and rub and rub and rub. U have an orts bag right now because my jar is in the basement.

That is a lovely pear. And, sometimes, stitching is more important than house work.

I am so glad that someone else's house has the same problem mine does - amazing how quickly pet hair accumulates isn't it? Love the colors in this piece and you really did stuff that jar. My post is here: http://yellowflowermeadow.blogspot.com/2014/04/a-day-late-tusal-and-smalls-sal.html

Lija Broka said...

I was gonna say totally useless? with that jar? you must be kidding. Love how the sampler is shaping up. Will need to browse the web to see how it will turn out. There can be dog hair and spots so long as there is progress.

Colourful project you've been putting a few little crosses into.
