I am joining the TUSAL, the Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long! over on Yoyo's blog, Dragon my Needle. When looking over the member list, I see a lot of the blogs I check out.
This is my original Ort jar that I now have a collection of buttons in. Then there is my current jar!
This is a fun thing and no pressure to PRODUCE countless stitching projects. I long to stitch but seriously people it can get overwhelming with all the accomplishments some of you guys produce. Not that others don't have a life but I work 10 hour days not counting the commute, I come home to the treadmill, volunteer committees, dinner, work I have brought home, etc., family, friends, etc., etc.......I stitch as much as I can but I seem to be diversified in my craft interests......so maybe it is knitting one night or card stamping another, or sewing yet another. It is long ago realized....I am the Jack of All and Master of None.....point being, it can be just as intimidating out there as it is rewarding to check out everyone's progress.
To that end, The Totally Uselss Stitch-A-Long! is right up my alley. No pressure....other than to post a photo of my ort jar once a month. To celebrate, I am starting a new jar. Or maybe a mug. I pulled out of the china cabinet a glass mug Mr.Wonderful bought me way back when on a trip to Busch Gardens. The thing sits in the closet and is never used....til now.
Funny, when a friend asked why I had all the trash in the mason jar and I tried to explain it, she didn't understand. It's a stitcher's thing! I hope to look back over the year and see the threads of my life in the jar. Next month I'll be sure get snap a better shot without all the clutter in the background!
