Boring ORTs are Totally Useless

While snapping the photos of my ORTs for today's Totally Useless Stitch A Long update I realized they are really quite boring as ORTs go. All tan threads and empty thread spools. Plastic empty thread spools at that. Oh well, at least I have ORTs to share!

I decided to leave them right where they are to take the picture. Look at all that stuff! Have I been busy? Yes! I've made three quilted tote bags in patriotic fabrics.

These will go up for auction at our upcoming Gathering of the Guard meeting. Every year the Oklahoma Patriot Guard has a get together. We gather donations for an auction to raise funds for the next meeting. The entire event is great fun.

Still no cross stitching ORTs. Too many quilting ideas of late!


We want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your July 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!

Those totes are SUPER! Great fabrics and great design! Yes... I kinda left cross stitch on the back burner and brought quilting to the front as well! I think that it's because cross stitch stuff is usually just decorative... while the quilt stuff is pretty and has a use? Either which way... it's FUN!

Gorgeous acorn wooden bowl and so full of threads from your lovely bags. Hope you make lots of funds in the sale/auction.

Marie said...

I love your patriotic quilt bags! I seem to be on a "quilting" frenzy right now and my cross stitch is being ignored.

I love your set up there with your Ort Jar and your scissors and all of that. I have a smiliar set up myself.

Your Hand Made Bags are so very cute - I love the colors of them.

You are so very talented - I too quilt but I am not as good as you are.

Can't wait til I see your stitching projects..

I love your Blog and all of the beautiful photos that you show each time.

Happy Quilting, Happy Stitching
Linda K
