Totally Useless February

Shine up those ORT jars people, it's the New Moon and our Totally Useless Stitch A Long is in full swing! I have added lots of little threads (so much white!) to my stitching jar and mojo is still running strong on Les Moutons:


My sewing ORTs are interesting from sewing those bowls cozies:


I love the bright colors in this Fresh Market layer cake. There are also some trimmings from ornament finishing. Remember that big box of finishing to do?  I'll try to share that business soon.


Here's a detail of the group of four sheepies. The bottom sheep is so fluffy only his toe-tips peek out. The top sheep reminds me of a setting hen, all fluffed out to nestle chicks!  Gosh, they're too cute! Hey, this means there are only a lucky 13 sheep left to stitch! I've a tiny start on group six as you can see in the TUSAL photo.

=^..^=

Now it is YOUR turn...we want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your February 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 am absolutely loving the sheep! They are too cute, and each new set are more adorable than the last.

Here's my blog post. I posted on the Facebook group too - not sure if that's a faux pas or not, so if I'm oversharing let me know and I'll pull back next month :)

Your ORT jar is so full, it put's mine to shame. Snow and ORT's are happenin' here at the Cabin as well. Stop by for a peek.

Your little sheep are so darn cute! When you show a close picture, those scampering cuties just look so fluffy and squeezable. And you have tons of thread orts!

My February orts are HERE.

Those sheep are so cute! And they do produce a lot of fluffy white ORTS too.
