Second New Moon

It has been an interesting year, moon wise, we had two new moons in January and two in March.  I believe we get back to a more normal one a month in April.  Other than being an interesting trivia item, it has made TUSAL posting a bit off.  TUSAL?  Yep, TUSAL - it stands for Totally Useless Stitch Along and is probably the easiest SAL you can participate in.  If you do needlework of any kind, you have the raw material for a TUSAL post.  All those little bits of floss that are too short to use for anything else? Instead of your family wearing them to work or school your pets dragging them around the house on their fur throwing them out as trash useless leftover bits, save them and post a photo on the new moonWhy?  That is the totally useless part but of course Why Not?  seems to be as good an answer as any.  It is also fun to look at all the jars/containers that others show - amazing how pretty bits and pieces of thread can look.

2014 TUSAL is hosted by Sharon over at It's Daffycat - if you click on the button it should take you to the information page.

The perle cotton bits from Elegant Doily do a wonderful job of tamping down the stack and dominating but bits and pieces from Snowy Pines, Strawberry Summer and Secret Victorian Garden have also been added this month.
