Channeling ol' Rip

How can we already be more than a week into March? I swear I don't know where the time goes. I know I have to take too many naps these days and when I look at the calendar I feel like Rip Van Winkle, sleeping 20 years of his life away.

Anyway, it's the New Moon again and I have a TON of ORTs to show off!


Okay, maybe that is just a little bit cheating. Those aren't really and truly ORTs are they? I saved them just in case they counted, lol! These are the bits and pieces of T-shirts left over after creating quilt blocks out of them!


Here are my real ORTs. I've been too busy preparing to create to actually create anything. I did play around with a few fabrics, teaching myself the best ways of making hourglass blocks, You can see the teeny triangles; dog ears I trimmed off. The bits of black are from making sashing strips for said T-shirt quilt. This is a request project for my dear sister-in-law.


Here are the T-shirt blocks, ready to begin sashing with the black strips. I just have to get up the energy to start. Maybe after a little nap...


=^..^=

Now it is YOUR turn...we want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your March 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!
