2012 UCJC - Day 23 & January TUSAL

I had such fun stitching today! I started on a little design from a book called Quick to Stitch Cross Stitch Cards. The design itself is a little pink kimono by Joan Elliot.

I think I made decent progress. I'm not normally a pink kind of girl, but this was just so cheerful! I like that I can SEE substantial progress.

It's also time for the first TUSAL post of 2012. (TUSAL = Totally Useless Stitch-a-long)

I didn't think I'd have much in the jar, but I have done a ridiculous amount of stitching over the last 3 weeks. I'm so used to stitching large, complicated projects where I spend half my time threading needles and planning my stitching route. I don't make a lot of ORTs with those projects. All these crazy starts generated not just a lot of ORTs, but a wild array of colours too!


  1. I Love the salmon color of the thread!

  2. Cute jar. Good luck on the kimono. I don't think I could stay with the pink.

  3. Great start on the pink kimono! Such a pretty ORT jar too!

  4. Lovely kimono! It will be a cute card! Great orts there too :D

  5. Funny I didn't see it as a kimono until you said so but then it was soooo obvious!!

    Lots of pretty orts!
