April TUSAL Orts Report

Wow another New Moon which means its time for me to post my Orts for the April TUSAL, what is a TUSAL=Totally Useless Stitch A Long what more information follow the like to Daffycat's site and you can find out what its all about and join too if you would like.

Orts Jar
The Orts for this  month come mainly from the Greenman #2 hand embroidery piece.  Yesterday I was able to put in some quality stitching time.
The top half of the Greenman's leaves are completely stitched and today I plan to start on the bottom half.  The photo doesn't do justice to the piece it is quite stunning up close.

More ort threads to be sorted for longer pieces I will still use the others will be tossed in my Orts jar
which I need to tamp down which I will do when this piece is completed. The lone blue yarn piece
is from the shawl I am crocheting which I work on when my fingers are too sore to hold onto the needle.
The shawl has reached thirty four inches in width and still growing, I am pleased with the results and I like the simple pattern stitch.
Well that's all for this month's TUSAL. I am off to an Arts and Crafts festival.
Happy Stitching

  1. What do you plan to do with your orts? I've seen some neat little bowls made by ladies.
