Six Days Late

Another late Totally Useless Stitch A Long post. You're used to that by now I'm sure. I don't feel as though I've done enough crafting lately. I want to be immersed in creativity ~ not dipping toes in every once in awhile! The New Moon has come and gone...did you post your ORTs?

I worked a bit on Finery of Nature. I had found a miscount from years ago and had to frog quite a bit but I think I'm back on track now. I've been using my OTT light laid on its side so I can see on the dark fabric. The lightbox is too huge and bulky and must be moved every time I need to use the desktop. I need an app on my Ipad so it shines like a light box...

I worked on the backing and binding to the T-shirt quilt. That's the camo and blaze orange ORTs in my leaf bowl. I've finished the quilt now...I'll save that for another post.

My new wastebasket, just for trimming scraps. 

These are the supplies for a new project I'm starting today. Some is bit of sewing...some a bit of crafting, it's going to be such fun! 


Now it is YOUR turn...we want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your August 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!

Beautiful piece... what is the name of this chart? I applaud you for stitching on black... don't know if I could see it. happy stitching!

You know.. you don't need a light box app on your phone/tablet - all you need is to open something that is white, like the messenger app, and it will give you enough light from underneath (just make sure it doesn't have power saving on unless you want to only work for say 10 mins at ago)

Black may be difficult to stitch on but it sure does have a dramatic effect! I just bought my first piece of black linen.

Sorry your mojo is taking a break. I have been immersed in stitching, it's so much better than the real world!

Here's my TUSAL post:

Maybe we'll see more Finery next month?

Your new project supplies look like cake bottoms or woowly bottoms ... I wonder what it is.

I love your WIP..OMG, the floss colors against the black! I can't stop looking at it...gorgeous! Your ORTs are beautiful too...I love how you laid your jar against the fabric :-)

Obviously you haven't seen some of my posts! I can be a bit wordy. Lol! I will have to jump on the ORTs bandwagon! Something to put on my list for tomorrow!

Akila said...

My mojo is totally down at the moment too :( So just dipping in my toes as you rightly put it.. wishing it comes back soon
