Last 2017 ORT Report

It's the New Moon and the last one of the year! Our Totally Useless Stitch A Long has been eventful for me this past year, from months with ORTs-A-Plenty to months of just a few - dratted broken arm! It's hard to believe the year is coming to an end. I could swear we just started!

Here is the last look at my little jar before it gets dumped into my BIG jar. Yes, I save ALL stitching ORTs...forever! These ORTs are from the last two years. I forgot to dump it before I'd already added a lot of ORTs! Really not a lot here compared to other years when I had to pack them in! 

My fabric ORTs are overflowing with Mystery Quilt bits! I was worried I'd need a bigger container this month! My fabric ORTs will just be tossed, there comes too many crumbs to save them all...my studio is only 10x10 foot!

I enjoy hosting the Totally Useless Stitch A Long. Do you want to continue (or join in) next year? If enough want to join in, I will have a sign-up posted soon. If you think you want to participate, leave a comment on this post and shoot me an email with a link to your blog:

daffy-cat AT hotmail DOT com  (change the capital letters to the appropriate symbols.)

I used to be able to follow your comments back to your blog but Google has changed how that works! 


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

I have been sporadic at posting TUSAL posts, but I enjoy seeing what others are up to with their ORTS.

I would love to continue doing TUSAL reports, I plan to have many Orts coming up in 2018. You made quite a nice pile of fabric orts despite your broken arm and your thread orts look good too.
My December orts can be found here: https://deborahsbitsandpieces.blogspot.com/2017/12/new-moon-and-tusal-report-for-december.html

See you in the New Year.

I love participating in the TUSAL posts and hope you continue hosting next year!

Looks like either your arm is feeling a lot better or you're so determined to work on that mystery quilt that you've come up with very effective work-arounds! Your quilting ort dish is fuller than I ever remember seeing it.

HERE are my orts from December.

I am so tempted by the QAL but I still haven't finished (heck I haven't even started) last year's. Here's my TUSAL post: https://yellowflowermeadow.blogspot.com/2017/12/wowsa.html

Dear Daffycat, I'm sorry to be late again, but here's my post for TUSAL and I'd like to join in next year too! Will email you tomorrow.

Yes, please continue, I'll try better this year to make it here, I promise. Have a great New Year!

bonnie said...

would love to start this again if you continue it!!!

Sandy In Montana said...

If your going to continue I think I would like to try to join back in the TUSAL that coupled with Stitching Lotus' Smalls SAL 2018 should get me back in the stitching mood with goals to push towards.

Hugs, Sandy

If I can remember I am up for a totally useless SAL. I just used my ORT's to stuff Christmas ornaments.

Finally got my December TUSAL post up http://cross-stitching-mama.blogspot.ca/2018/02/late-december-tusal.html

I save all my orts forever too :)
