TUSAL, January 2017

For anyone who needs an explanation, TUSAL would mean Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long. Sharon’s It’s Daffycat blog has further details HERE.

Jo at Serendipitous Stitching empties her big ort jar for the new year, but I thought I’d just share a picture of mine (which is about 4 1/2 inches tall to the top of the lid).

Feeling pretty good about the pile of orts this month, probably because I did a fair amount of stitching (for me). And since TUSAL is kind of a silly thing already, I’m going to share my stitching days calendar, which is a *highly* silly thing.

Jane Turner supplied all the orts this time around.

Oh, and Jane’s orts don’t go into the big jar after each month’s new moon – she gets her very own small one till she’s finished.

Jane’s band 8 – nearly done with the double running stitch!

And Jane in her entirety - sorry the top is sort of drifting away.



  1. Wow, this is so intricate and amazing.

  2. I can see why there are so many orts from Jane. Yhat is one very amazing design!

  3. I love that you keep a stitchy calendar, Deb :) I know my day always feels like it's missing something if I haven't spent at least some time with my needle and thread!

    Jane is looking so very special--wow! I am in awe!

    Enjoy these last few days of January :)

  4. Oh my! Jane just stops me in my tracks!

  5. Wow! Your piece is absolutely amazing!
