First 2014 TUSAL

What a great way to start the new year - a SAL check-in!!  Here is my first TUSAL check-in for 2014.

I switched containers this year as it was hard to see the ORTS in the fancy candy dish I used last year, so 2014 gets a plain ol' Mason jar.  The piece in the background is the ginormous hardanger doily I've been working on since dinosaurs roamed the earth for ages and there are still millions thousands lots of eyelets to stitch, not to mention the cutting and pulling.

If you're interested in participating in a no pressure, fun SAL, click the button and read all about it.  No pressure, nothing special to stitch, nothing to keep track of, except the new moon and your orts.

LOL I chose a fancy jar for my orts, cause I like the orts as well as the jar I'm putting them in XD

Love the look of that doily! But then I've only just started teaching myself how to do hardanger. :)

I use a washed-up jar too. It's just a nice shape for me.

Love the hardanger piece but it does look like alot of work!
