A Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long

Notice: The 2012 Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long is now open for sign-ups, click here to go!

I received so many comments & emails about the Totally Useless Stitch-a-long that I decided to "revive" it for next year. I will change the link in my sidebar to link to this post since it now links to a blog which no longer exists.

If you would like to join the SAL for 2011, leave a comment on this post. The rules are simple...

1. Get a glass container and save your thread clippings or ORTs (Old Ratty Threads!) Some stitchers include fabric trimmings, thread bands or any other stitching cast-offs they gather.

2. On (or about) each New Moon take a picture of the ORTs in your jar and post it to your blog. Yes, you MUST have a blog to be included. Reasonably "late" posts will be accepted...posting several updates at once is cheating!

3. Yes, you can use your current ORT jar. This is no contest...the stitcher with the most ORTs doesn't automatically win!

4. You must post a picture each New Moon, even if there has been no "progress" to show.

5. Label your Totally Useless posts with "TUSAL" to make it easier for me to find your posts at the end. If you don't know how to "label" your posts email me.

Why numbers 4 & 5? Because...those that have commented here AND made their 13 New Moon 2011 updates will be included in a giveaway! That's right...every stitcher commenting here will be added to the drawing. If your name is drawn, I will check your blog for your New Moon updates, if they have been made ~ then you win...if not, another name will be drawn!

Wait! This is a giveaway, you ask? What is the prize? To be totally honest, I have no clue!!! I will start collecting stash...adding it to a box. Would it be fun to have participants & fellow bloggers add stash? I think so! If you'd like to add an item to the giveaway you can email me at daffy-cat AT hotmail DOT com & I will give you my mailing address. Please, don't send me an 8 pound bag of crushed walnut shells...or I'll not afford to mail the package to the winner! I'm thinking handmade items, charts (respect copyrights, no photocopies!) fat quarters, fabric and finishing materials. Sound good?

Please DON'T comment on this post if you are not joining the stitch-a-long! Since some of you have multiple blogs, please tell me the name of the blog you will be posting your updates to. I will add your name & blog link to a list in this post. If you have commented and you have not been added to the list within a few days...I may have overlooked you...email me! Questions? Feel free to email me! International bloggers are welcome!

Rita E in AZ said...

What a great idea - I really believe this is a SAL that I can keep up with.
The blog I will post to is http://stitchdays.blogspot.com/.
Can we change our ort jar during the year? I may find something more attractive than the empty plastic peanut butter jar I am using.

Hi Daffy - I'd love to join the 2011 TUSAL - I didn't do so much stitching last year but will empty my jar and get ready to start again.

Thanks for organising this :)

Sounds like something new and fun to join! I'll empty my jar right now before I sit down to stitch and get started for 2011! Thanks for organizing this!


Fidget said...

Oh, this makes my heart happy!! I'm so glad you picked up the TUSAL banner and are running with it. When Yoyo's blog went away I quit posting TUSALs for 2010, though I ended up with a full quart jar! Looking forward to posting TUSALs again.

My blog is http://flossylady.blogspot.com/ and I'm Fidget - or Carol - I answer to both.

Happy New Year!

Hello dear, count on me please, happy to find you over my dear Loretta from Canada, my blog is www.villa-loredana.blogspot.com, I'm from Croatia, old lady Europe; last year I was also in Tusal organized by Pat from Il pollaio; and she is still going also this year, in my jar will be all kinds of floss as I'm knitter, sewer, cross sticher and so. I'm sure that all we will have a nice time during the year. Have a nice time, and I'm going to read the other your rules to fullfill all. With regards. Loredana.

Karen said...

What a wonderful idea. I'd like to join. I might actually manage to keep this and my blog going. Happy New Year. I never make resolutions but mine for 2011 is to keep this TUSAL up-to-date!!

No to find a suitable jar...

My blog is http//StitchingisCheaperthanTherapy.blogspot.com/

Susan said...

I might actually be able to keep up with this SAL - I've failed miserably at the others I've tried.

My blog is at sue61408.u.yuku.com -Yellow Flower Meadow (sounds so much nicer than the address)

Thank you for hosting this.

Cindy in MA said...

I would like to join! I promise to get flossy lady to beat me over the head on the new moon to post my updates! I just have to figure out what I'm doing with last years ORTS!

Thanks for the definition I had been calling them orts but I didn't know it was an acronym and what it stood for!

looking forward to the fun

Jenny said...

This is such a fun idea! Add me to the TUSAL too, please; http://onestitchcloser.blogspot.com
I also think that the DMC band jar as a "shopping list" is such a clever idea.
Thanks & Happy Stitching,

angie stitchings n things said...

I will post my TUSAL 2010 on my blog and count me in for the TUSAL 2011. Thanks

Anonymous said...

Why not?! Sign me up. I love my pretty glass jars!


Joy said...

Please count me in for the 2011 TUSAL. I will get my first pic up today.

Stitcher S said...

I am totally 'out of the loop', and had no idea what TUSAL was (I apologize) and found it exciting to figure it out here this morning. I love the idea of anything useless, and participating in useless endeavors has been a flagstone of my life. Count me in!

My blog is yet another Stitch in Time, but with a rather * after the title. :)

Vicky L said...

I would love to join this year. I saw posts on other blogs last year. It is so easy and fun.

My blog: http://nswvml.blogspot.com

Thank you

Midge said...

I'm going to join you since you are keeping it open for a few more days. My blog is "Midge's Crafty Corner" I will take a pick and post my update.
Thank you for what looks like a bit of fun.

Angharad said...

What a fun SAL! Count me in! My blog is Life's a Stitch and I will try to 'label' my posts once I work out how lol :)

Laura said...

So glad you are taking this over, Sharon. I did it last year and would like to participate again. I'll post my January pic later today.


FIONA said...

I would love to join too if I'm not too late! Sounds like fun!!
My blog is Peaceful Threads and I have lots of fun reading others! http://peacefulthreads.blogspot.com

Kay said...

I would love to join too. I have my picture taken on the fourth, and I started my blog this a.m. I am still trying to figure out how to post photos. (I'm slow with technology sometimes.) The blog site will be kaysrandomworld.blogspot.com

Thanks for letting me play along too.

Unknown said...

This sounds like fun, but this is the 5th, and I won't be by my camera until Friday, the 7th. Would this unqualify me from the very beginning? (I spend half my week staying at my daughter's house, and half my week at my home. While I would be able to take a photo each new moon, I would not be able to post it until the following weekend.)Whatever, I think I will try to do this, no matter if I am in the drawing or not. Sounds like too much fun to miss!

Karin said...

I'd love to join too, if there's still room.

polyrhythmic said...

I'd like to kick start my commitment to more stitching (and knitting) this year.

Kate+IceCream said...
