January TUSAL

So I decided, late in the game to join the TUSAL (Totally Useless Stitch A Long) which is be running off of Daffycat's Blog.  So you pretty much collect your stitching orts (those are the little bits of thread you cut off when you're done) in a jar ... pretty or not.  Then on or as close to the new moon as possible you photograph your jar and share it on your blog.  I was feeling so left out I just had to join in!

January TUSAL progress

Today before I picked up my actual stitching I did the finishing on my last little snowflake.  I did the same finish as the last one.


I have sat down to stitch today, but I don't seem to be able to "settle" into my stitching.  I seem to be flitting from reading blogs and the weight watchers message boards, to stitching, to playing Bejeweled Blitz, to stitching, and back to blogs again.  For some reason this has been going on for awhile now, hopefully tomorrow I'll "buckle down".

The PhotoHunt for January 1st was "Fuzzy"

I came across this fuzzy bulrush while out for a walk this past fall

I always have loved seeing your jar at the end of the year! I started one myself last year-not even close to have much you did but definitely more than I thought I had done.

Just keep telling yourself this too shall pass. You'll be stitching again before you know it.

Welcome to the world of the TUSAL!!!
Beautiful snowflake finish! Come on girl, stitch a bit!

Karen said...

I'm sure your jar of orts will fill up quickly! Your snowflake turned out really cute. I like the beaded edging. I hope you get your stitching groove back soon. The same thing happens to me at times.

I keep thinking if I should join the TUSAL, but am probably too late to the game now lol.
Well done on another cute fob. I know the feeling of not settling, have had all day to stitch today and instead have messed about on the laptop and napped lol. And I wonder why I don't see as much progress on my stitching as other people.

Dani yeah for joining the TUSAL. I'm liking the Photo Hunt pics.

Hey, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I've been looking at your finishes from last year and they are impressive. I especially like the TW piece. Sorry you're off on the stitch count on your other piece (I don't envy you trying to find the error). I'll be back to visit.

The snowflake is cute as a button!
