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!

I'm glad to find your blog & post now, I've been saving up some ORTs for a while, because I found some TUSAL kind of posts on French blogs, but never figured out why stitchers published them.
Even if I only join you for a few months, I'd love to do so.

Can I?

Heather Schlotzky said...

Okay I'm trying this again because I had trouble signing into my Google Account (sorry if it double posts)

Can I join in? I have a tumblr blog, does that count? If it doesn't I understand, I just thought it'd be worth a shot. :)


Katie said...

Hi! So may I join in the fun? I kind of already have, because I started keeping my ORTs at the last new moon after seeing all the TUSAL blog posts, but I would love it to be official. ^_^ I know it's a bit late in the year, but hopefully that's fine. My blog is http://stitchingandotherobsessions.blogspot.com/. :)

Kaliedra said...

Oh as I'm finally getting back to my stitching I would love to join! A reason to smile over the ORT jar :)
