Quick ORT Snap

Today is the New Moon and time for the Totally Useless Stitch A Long! My ORTs are cluttered atop EVERYTHING in my studio because pest control is coming to do their yearly business in our house. Miss Molly is at the vet's getting vaccinated and toenails trimmed (I don't like getting growled at. Or bitten.) and there she will stay until the house is dry. While waiting, I will post lovely blue ORTs:

And a total crapload of CLUTTER. The pink Post It note is to remind me the throat plate is for straight stitch only...don't switch to a zigzag! Our house looks crazy with stuff pulled away from the walls and stacked on top of tables. The OCD in me is screaming to get everything back in ORDER. 


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

The UK are out of sync again! I have the New Moon as tomorrow. I'll make sure to post and link up then.

That pink post-it is a good idea!

Here is my ORT report: June TUSAL picture heavy showing my misc. SAL progress and (partially) stitched freebies from pattern's I've made and shared on my blog and an exciting announcement.

Pink post it is a great idea - don't know how many needles I broke before deciding to use the zigzag plate exclusively.

My June orts are HERE.

I did not know this about the Throat Plate - is this for all of Sewing Machines or just certain ones?

I did not know that there was a Zig Zag Throat Plate for Sewing Machines!

You are like me - you have to get everything in order and put in their perspective places.

Happy Sewing

Have A Lovely Day
