New Moon - Time for TUSAL

What is TUSAL? Why it's the Totally Useless Stitch-a-Long. For more info head on over to Daffycat's blog post about it.

 From the top and from the side:  that's my rose bowl vase that I found at an antique store in Rochester, NH while shopping with my sister after Christmas. 
The tag said it was Heisey. I haven't done a lick of research to see if it was true. All I know is it was a bargain. 

Those are my orts for the past month. Actually kind of impressive the amount I accumulated. These are only mine - I didn't let anyone else add to my total. And a few of mine escaped to parts unknown. 

I realize that if you work projects with lots of color changes you accumulate orts faster. Lately I've been stitching down to the end of the thread a lot. I see lots of pink from my Stars project. 

Still waiting for my furniture delivery. I guess the weather screwed them up today. Did get a phone call telling me they'd be delayed.

That's a great ort collector! All the colors look beautiful through the curves.

I have been enjoying seeing what everyone has chosen to hold their orts. Your bowl is so pretty.
