TUSAL May 2017

Check Sharon’s It’s Daffycat blog for a thorough explanation of the Totally Useless Stitch A Long. CLICK HERE for all the details.

Rather a modest pile of orts this month:

The Silly Stitching Calendar says I stitched a mere dozen days since the last TUSAL check in. Phooey.

All orts this month are from Jane Turner. Band 9 is complete (and those blue flowers were just as much of a pain in the neck in band 9 as they were in band 7), and all the outlining is complete for band 10. Need to fill in leaves and petals and grape-like flowers with satin stitch, and then fill the large flower centers using couching. Have only done couching in a straight line prior to this, so spiraling to fill the circle may be a bit challenging.

Here’s a peek at bands 9 and 10.

I'm getting excited about the next big band coming up as it's the lady band!



  1. Nice work on the outlining, there's still a lot of filling in work there!d

  2. Oh sigh. I so love seeing this piece. It's so gorgeous!!

  3. Well, a dozen days is better than none at all, Deb! Jane is looking wonderful!

  4. I love those blue flowers--your stitching is exquisite!

  5. Your piece is looking fabulous! You must be very "thrifty" using your fibers if that's all the orts you have in a month! :)

  6. Your Jane Turner piece is stunning. I don't know how you handle all those different stitches.
