TUSAL My Orts so far

Another New Moon tells me it is once again time for the TUSAL Orts report, my Orts for May/June are not too bad so far with many more to be added as the weeks move forward.

The orts are mainly from the Greenman #2 and this little hand embroidery I made earlier in the month

and from the Goddess piece I started this weekend, I have two Goddesses left to stitch but I will put

them aside so I can work on this Peace Square for the Artists for Peace project, I chose to make a
Peace square on light box
square using hand embroidery, but you can make a square using just about any medium: knitted, crocheted, quilted or sewn, you could even weave a square.  For more details on the project, a look at some of the squares gathered and other pertinent information, like the address where to send you finished square click the link:

I continue to gather hand embroidery patterns for future projects, I just love Crab-apple Hill Studios patterns. This sweet little bouquet should stitch up very nicely and help to fill my orts jar for the next
TUSAL report, what is a TUSAL, it stands for Totally Useless Stitch-a-Long, but to me it is so much more, it motivates me to stitch more, sew more, crochet more etc, it help me keeping up with my goal for 2015 to be more creative, I have to say I have been right on track.
