Totally Useless SAL - April
I have to admit to starting to feel embarassed at my floss extrvagance. My jar has been tamped down several times - the last time being just before I started stitching the holly and berries on Jolly Old Fellow. I have some good advice from several stitchers on ways to reduce my floss waste, but I think I'm unlikely to change my wicked ways on this project. I'll have to do it gradually, start slowly on a small project till I find my way so to speak. To tell the truth some (possibly large) part of me really loves seeing the threads pile up in my TUSAL jar. A friend (who knows that I am a Christmas lover) suggested placing the TUSAL threads into those clear plastic two-part baubles, and turning them into Christmas decorations. I do happen to have 4 large clear plastic baubles in my craft rom, so don't be surprised to see my TUSAL jar contents on display in my house this Christmas.
Addit: I had intended to edit out the demi-johns in the background of my TUSAL jar pic, but when I saw the pic I really liked it, so I left them in. They usually live on the floor adjacent to the box - they were only on the box because I was in the middle of washing the floor when I took the pic.
