That's exactly what I asked myself when I kept seeing TUSAL
and ORT showing up on stitching blogs.
So I followed the Internet rabbit trail to Daffycat's fun blog :)
Apparently she has a "Totally Useless Stitch A Long" going on
and you can join in at any time!
I love the idea and totally LOVE the name of it!
And every new moon
(don't worry......she has a list of dates)
you post a picture on your blog
of your "Old Ratty Threads" or ORT's in a jar.
This kind of stitch along is right up my alley!
Hop on over to Daffycat's blog
and join us for what she calls the Totally Useless Endeavor!
Today I wanted to show you 2 little finishes I did
I added a tiny flower button to the little birdie
stitchery because the stitched flower wasn't really showing up.
I like the way it turned out :)
I added some large rick rack to my flag stitchery.
It's the first of my Patriotic pieces.
I have some more patterns picked out and ready to join
this guy pretty soon.
I just finished stitching Lizzy Kate's "Time for God".
I changed the thread colors to better match my home.
I stitched it on hand dyed pale blue 32ct linen over 2 threads.
And last but not least,
(and since I joined in after the last new moon)
I'm going to show you my ORT jar anyways :)
