Totally Useless Saturday

Here is the New Moon again and time to show off our orts! Saturdays are not really totally useless but that's the name of our stitch-a-long and it is Saturday. When in Rome.

Okay, all you Totally Useless Stitch A Long bloggers...let's see those orts!

My orts are three colors and done. I love the effect in the stitching even if it makes rather plain orts. I'm almost finished with Books of the Bible. One last border to go!

No sewing orts to share as I've only been doing a bit of quilting which leaves no orts, really.

I spent quite a bit of time working on the quilt. Here it is under my needle, finishing up the last few quilting lines going up-and-down.

It is now rolled up the other direction, waiting to be quilted back-and-forth. It's half-way quilted! This part of the quilting is nice. The quilt seems to weigh less with the pins removed and without pins, it doesn't catch on my hair or clothes! It's still like wrestling an octopus but it is a slightly less naughty octopus. My plan for today is to get as much of this second half of the quilting finished! I'm counting down to doing the's my favorite part!


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