2012 TUSAL #1

This is my first post for the Totally Useless Stitch Along over at It's Daffycat ........ If you wish to know what it's all about and would like to join in........ here is the link . There were 296 participants when I last checked the sign up list.

What's it all about you say???????

Basically, I will be collecting all my thread, yarn and fiber ORT's from my stitching......and, all my scrappy fabric bits from my sewing that I would normally throw away and will be putting them into mason jars.......and then posting a picture of said mason jars every month on the full moon....see....a totally useless pursuit:)

The Mason jars.

A close up of a mason jar:)
I'm sure there is something that can be made from all of this stuff at the end of the year.

p.s. I googled to find out why these types of jars are called mason jars....well....they are named after John Landis Mason who invented and patented them in 1858........Wikipedia. 

Take care:)


  1. This is wonderfully silly LOVE it!!
    I once saved several months of thread spools.Amazing the number I collected in that time.

  2. That is certainly a new and interesting one. Tempted to join in - wouldn't be one of those things that you start enthusiastically and then run out of time to do properly either!

  3. I'm doing the same, saving every little piece of fabric and floss...I have a huge box filled with them. My idea is to stuff one of those big cushions, where peolple sit down, that are called "puff", I don't know if you understand my strange English. Regards from Tenerife, Mimi

  4. I absolutely love this! Everything looks better in a Mason jar, don't you think?

  5. There is something about things in jars! Just lovely. Mason Jars? Are I they the ones with handles you can drink from?

  6. This is so silly, I love it!!

  7. I like mason jars. They are good to keep lots of crafty things in!
    Wishing you a happy weekend!

If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
