TUSAL 1/23/2012

I just love these old canning jars. It's not often I find them with lids. When I do, I snatch them up.


I chose a pint size one for the 2012 Totally Useless SAL coordinated by Daffycat.

My jar contains threads from:
• Japanese Garden... pretty pastels and sparkly #4 Krenik braid
• Little Snowman... whites, blues, and orange
• Blossom Splendor... blues, purples, and greens
• Oh, and a mailart... reds, browns, and other muted colors

Wow, I've done a lot of stitching so far this month!

I tried to join this year Meari but my emails bounced back. I'll probably have mostly quilting threads for the first half of the year, so maybe those threads won't qualify. You have done allot of stitching so far.

Just a pint size? With school out of your way you definitely will need a bigger jar!

You have a great start Meari. This is my 2nd year & I actually remembered to post my picture. Last year I kept forgetting to post them.

I love your jar, save these along with many other stuff. The TUSAL is a cute and fun idea. I had a pile going and my husband though it was trash and threw it out when I was not about. Men, I need to watch him more than I do my little guy, Trace. Just does not seem right, does it?

Were you baking Meari? I seem to acquire those when I am baking. I think it is the oven attacking me
I will wait for your side of the story.
