Getting Better All The Time

I wasn't feeling "up to snuff" when the New Moon rolled around last Sunday so our Totally Useless Stitch A Long did not get posted on time. I meant to make time during the week to get it done but work ended up a bear so I just rolled with it. I'd probably break the internet if I posted on time anyway!

My wooden leaf bowl got absolutely stuffed to the brim.


That is a pile of ORTs! Remember that pile of pretty fabrics I showed you awhile back?


Lots of corner cutting going on around here.


It was a chain-piecing marathon!


How do they all stay on the table?


I have the base of the quilt in three or four panels. Once I get them sewn together and pressed I can start creating borders. This is a truly fun pattern to sew. It is so repetitive I can just zone out and get soothed by the peacefulness of creating. Ahhhh!

=^..^=

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

Funny how the pile of "scraps" turns into the beautiful quilt.

Here's my ORTs post -
