Affectionately known as the TUSAL ~ a stitch-a-long where progress is shown by display of your ort jar. I had made a note to join this SAL at the beginning of the year, and then promptly got distracted. And of course I remembered after I emptied my ort jar. So here I am starting with a fresh and empty ort jar….
Ort: those little scraps of thread and whatnot that are left when you snip and trim and finish up stitching a length of thread.
My ort jar is actually from a jar of jam. It was just such a cute little glass jar that I couldn’t toss it in the recycle bin. I actually have a few of these. I meant to make candles or something in them, but they ended up getting used for orts and other little randomness.
You can join TUSAL on your blog too, there’s a great list of stitchers participating!
TUSAL updates are posted on the New Moon, so I’ll check in with some orts again on February 21st. Until then, happy stitching!
