TUSAL December 2017

CLICK HERE to go to Sharon’s It’s Daffycat blog to read a thorough explanation of the Totally  Useless SAL.   

Phooey.  I *really* wanted to have Jane Turner’s Lady Band finished to show you for this last TUSAL post of the year, but I needed another half hour or so of stitching time.  Guess the good thing is that I got any stitching done at all - last year’s December TUSAL post had nothing to show but crumbs.  

The Silly Stitching Calendar says I’ve had 14 stitching days since the last TUSAL post – not bad considering this is December!  All the orts are from Jane Turner. 

I'm going to wait to show you this band when it’s complete – probably not till after Christmas since my daughter is already here, my son and daughter's husband are both coming in a couple of days and there’s still a lot to do for the holiday.  Oh, who am I kidding – we have such a good time when she’s here that I don’t take time to stitch!

I’m working on Lady Jane’s face and it’s mostly filled in – just need to do her chin and neck and then give her some features and the band will be done.  Ah, I know what to do – I’ll show you what *is* done!

The birds are done.


The big pink flowers are done.

The fruit is done (and so are the leaves).

The creepy crawlies are done.

Even the pesky blue flowers are done.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Looking good Deb!!! Enjoy your time with your family...stitching can wait!!

  2. Love the birds and bugs!
    Have fun spending time with the kids.

  3. I imagine the Lady Band is going to be stunning when its done based on the beautiful stitched parts shown.

  4. So gorgeous! Can't wait can't wait for the big reveal!

  5. What gorgeous details. I hate showing a piece when it is almost complete, it spoils the surprise!

  6. This is such an amazing piece of work, Deb--every time I look at it, I see something new! The birds and bugs are so cute (well, not sure I would call a caterpillar cute, but!).

    Really looking forward to seeing the grand finale :)

    Merry Christmas!!

  7. Thanks for a snak peek at the details. Merry Christmas.
