Totally Useless SAL

I have joined the Totally Useless SAL and, as it's new moon, here are my April orts! As I have only been stitching on Petites Lettres Rouges during April, these are the only orts I have to show but ...

... here is my Coca Cola glass of orts! I have no idea of how long I have been collecting these but quite a while going by the different colours hiding in there. I am searching for a pretty jar to continue with the SAL as once I am up to speed with my stitching that tiny little glass dish will soon be filled.

Despite the bright sunshine it's too cool to sit outside today so I am going to put the tv on and work a few more stitches in PLR. I may just get this done in time to meet the contest deadline - we shall see!

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Well, I guess I'm making my first visit to your lovely blog on the right day. WELCOME to the Totally Useless SAL, we love new members! At one time my jar was all blue, it will change (LOL). BTW, today is the NEW moon. But don't worry about it, everybody writes full moon in their first post, wonder what's with that? You can pick up a button for your side bar from by sidebar if you like (definitely not mandatory). Great start, looking forward to your Totally Useless Progress and that which builds it.

    It's fun to see people's ORTs. I didn't join this SAL but it's amazing to see how those little pieces of thread add up!

    And there is another SAL, which is about displaying your orts on the FULL moon (not the NEW moon) - next deadline is 9th May 2009... Want to join ?

    That's a good idea, put the orts in a coca-glass ! I was not at home for april, so I wait next full-moon. I like the english version :Totally Useless SAL !! I go now for looking your other posts. My friend showed me a lovely old book from J. Austen : Pride and Prejudice, in English with beautifull drawings (from 1901). I'll post it one time on my blog. Nice stitching ! +++ Marie
