A Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long

To Join the TUSAL for 2013 click here.

Notice...The 2012 TUSAL has NOW ENDED. I will not be adding any more blogs to the list. 

The 2012 Totally Useless Stitch-a-long is launched for sign-ups!

If you would like to join the SAL for 2012 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. You may continue filling this jar throughout the year OR you may empty the jar and start over each month ~ no firm rules here!

2. On (or about) each New Moon take a picture of the ORTs in your jar and post it to your blog. This is a blog game so YES, you MUST have a blog to be included.

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

4. You should 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.

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 the 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!

Some changes to the SAL from last year:

1. New participants are welcome to join at any time, yes, even in December of 2012!

2. I am not accepting stash donations for a prize this year but there will be prizes ~ probably something stitched by me.

3. Edit to clarify things a little: You DO NOT have to post an ORT Report every New Moon to be included in this SAL. This is only meant to be FUN not WORK. However, you MUST be ON THE GUEST LIST to be included in the giveaway.

4. A request: I notice there are a lot of bloggers completely in the dark about your Totally Useless posts. They see lots of people posting pictures of ORT jars but they have NO IDEA why. They might want to join in the fun too! Please put a LINK to this sign-up page when you make your TUSAL posts. A link in your sidebar is great but ONLY if your readers SEE it and realise what it is. If you need to learn how to create links email me. I can teach you how!

There are 12 2012 New Moon Dates:

January 23
February 21
March 22
April 21
May 20
June 19

I saw this a couple of months ago. I'd love to join. I bought a jar. I got all excited. I came home ready to stitch and put my ORTs into the jar. I went looking for the jar and discovered that my husband had stolen it and filled it with Cashew nuts. *sigh*. But I will attempt to eat all these before January and then I'd like to join in please on my blog, It's All About Me: http://ricketyjo.blogspot.com
Thank you!!

My Jim doesn't look nearly as good as George did last year. My camera batteries are dead so I will have to find some to take a picture of him. I'm debating on making another rectangular rainbow tribble next year or I have a square glass ornament left over and I could use that. Funny thing was my friend gave me an ornament filled with some of her orts for a gift!
