Totally Useless Stitch A Long

Okay, I totally forgot to swap my calendar to 2019 so I thought TUSAL was supposed to be today, the 7th, not yesterday the 6th. I'm late! What else is new?

My thread ORTs were sparse. Just not feeling the mojo this past couple of months.

My sewing ORTs look better but only because they are so bulky! The wood leaf bowl has ORTs from Christmas ornaments and a few bits from an appliqué project I've (barely) started.

Here are this year's ORTs stuffed in one place! I didn't mean to collect a yearly jar, I just forgot to dump it that first month before adding a ton of ORT. It was fun though!

Just for fun...here are all the ORTs I've collected since starting this blog 10+ years! I put the jar next to my iron so you could see the size. 

If you would like to continue (or begin) with the Totally Useless Stitch A Long please visit the link below and see if your blog is on the list. If your blog is missing, please email me your link to daffy-cat AT hotmail.com (Replace AT with @ or it won't go through!)


Now it is YOUR turn...we want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your January TUSAL post so we can come to visit! If I hold a Totally Useless giveaway your comment will earn you an extra entry.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Happy new year, good to see you again - and what a lot of ORTs you've collected over the years - they look inspiring. My TUSAL post wa up only a few hours too late ;)
Thank you for hosting once again.

Looks like you have been busy with your stitching .

Maggie said...

Wow that's a big jar of orts, lol
I have an old Kenko coffee jar where i put mine, when i think about it.

I won't join in with the TUSAL because I forget half the time to add mine to to my jar and I'm not very good at remembering dates either lol but have fun :-)

Hoping to join in the TUSAL again this year, although that will require me to do some stitching which has been rather side-lined at the moment. Planned an hour's stitching yesterday afternoon and ended up doing a whole afternoon's admin for my photography club instead.

If I do join it will be with my new blog 'Into the Dark'

Happy New Year! I like the great big jar, that's pretty impressive :)

Sandy said...

I keep some yarn left overs, or pieces I've trimmed when working in ends, but not many. I like to use them to tie together pieced afghans to keep things in place as I crochet pieces together. So they get reused. Somewhere they're in a zip lock bag. From time to time I forget I have them and start a new bag for them......and then of course I find the original bag, lol.

Love seeing your big jar! That is an impressive collection. I too have a big jar that houses all my orts since I started collecting but it is starting to overflow so I think I will start using them to stuff ornaments.

I thought I had already posted my January report but it looks like I forgot so here it is.
