October ORT Report

Happy New Moon! It's time to share those ORTs you've been saving for the Totally Useless Stitch A Long! I just LOVE all the creative ways people come up with to share, don't you? Mine are same-old-boring but shown here with a new start:

This is Secret Pumpkin Patch by the Trilogy. With all the pumpkins floating around out there, I was in the mood for stitching a few! I'm using the suggested DMC with a couple of changes so the treads show up on my fabric.

Speaking of pumpkins...thank you all so much for the great turn-out to my celebration of Pumpkin Day event. I am working on getting the link list together so there is an easier way to visit the participants. 

This would be a really boring TUSAL post without mentioning Molly-dog, wouldn't it? She's so grown-up-looking. Still an ornery, mischievous and sometimes downright stupid puppy! Like getting too excited playing I'm-a-vicious-wolf while I was brushing her and getting smacked smart for accidentally biting me. Molly will be a year old in only a few weeks.

This is a peanut butter flavored chew bone. It's been carefully hidden between the laundry hamper and the night table. Shhhh, pretend you don't see the bone! If you see the bone, Molly will have to find a new hiding place! These have become a fast favorite toy. Molly even knows this toys name, it's so special. I can ask, "Where is your peanut butter bone?" and Molly will dash off to find one!

Now let's see your ORTs! TUSALers leave a comment on this post with the address to your October update. If I decide to host a giveaway at the end of the year you will receive an extra entry! Are you wondering what the heck a TUSAL is? Click here for info!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Molly is beautiful , she looks fun.
I lost my Poppy last January and I miss finding her doggy chews hidden around the house , they are so funny , she would even dig up the garden hiding them I thought we had a mole!
Your stitching is looking great.

Molly hides that bone so you won't eat it and I know you really want to, but please don't :-)

A lovely WIP. Thanks for organising the Pumpkins for Cathey and for asking me to be part of it. It's never a chore for a worthwhile cause and it was fun too!

Carol said...

Such a cute new pumpkin start, Sharon--at this rate maybe pumpkin day will last all year :) Thanks again for organizing such a wonderful tribute to Cathey!

Marie said...

That was so sweet of you to organize the Post for Cathey. I hope that she is doing okay.

What a cute puppy Molly is! I love that she hides her bone. Where do you get those? My yorkie would probably love them. :-)

Catherine said...

Molly is so sweet!! As for my orts, sadly, I have not been able to squeeze in any stitches....I need to try and squeeze some in!! Hugs!

Angie said...

I'm new to TUSAL. This is only my second month participating. It's such a great idea! I've always had an ort jar, but I'd always empty it when it was full. I love the idea of having a big jar full of orts. :)
