A Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long (TUSAL)

 I've joined in the TUSAL for 2012.  I had seen it on several blogs last year and wondered how it worked..... here is the link to explain

So here is my jar........
As a reminder, I have added a tag with all the new moon dates for 2012.  Wonder how long it will take to fill it?  I'm planning on using all the scrap threads in some machine made fabric,  cos it sounds like fun.

happy stitching

First post of 2012

Firstly, A Very Happy New Year to all who read this new post of 2012.

I started the Crazy 15 Challenge on January 1st, if you would like to see my progress and what I decided to stitch, please click on the tab above.  That page is to show my progress until January 15th when I should have all projects started.  Progress and finishes thru the year will be posted here.  
January is always a hard month for me, the cold and dull days make me want to hibernate, and I get the 'winter blues'..... roll on spring!  I'm going to try and keep myself busy and hopefully get at least two finishes before the end of the month. 

I'll leave you with a lovely orchid I have on my kitchen window sill, this is its second flower stalk.

and Petra if your reading this .... yes, it is the one you gave me in the summer when you were over here.  Thank you, it gives me much pleasure.

Happy stitching
