Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

A batch of fridge magnets in progress

I've stitched up another 12 tiny Christmas trees, and decorated all but 2 of them. I should finish them up as little fridge magnets tomorrow. Tomorrow being Wednesday it's our Christmas stitching SAL, so when I finish my Christmas tree fridge magnets I'll start a batch of 12 tiny wreaths to be framed/made into fridge magnets.

I've found a nice jar to use for the Totally Useless SAL. It's a nice big one, and hopefully will accommodate a year's worth of stitching left-overs. I did a test run by collecting my stitching waste for 3 days, and was astounded at the volume I collected. I was also surprised at how pretty the threads looked. Since I had been stitching tiny trees my threads were all greens, reds or gold, and they actually looked very festive together.

I must already graduate to a larger jar for my orts, I'm totally surprised at the amount of snips left over after a stitching session. Thanks for joining the Totally Useless SAL, come on stitchers join us, it's going to be fun.

I'm enjoying collecting my bits and pieces - I may never throw the orts away again!
