Totally Useless SAL TUSAL and Earth Hour

Well, here's my month's collection of orts in a reaaaallly big container. I've got high expectations for this SAL so I reckon I can half fill it by the end. In there is a DMC label and a needle along with DMC floss and Vikki Clayton's Hand Dyed Fibers.

It's gonna look real pretty by the time we're finished. Now don't tell anyone if I ask you to send your orts to me! We'll keep it just between the two of us...

Feel like joining in? You can find the Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long details here

you'll need to cut and paste as I'm technologically challenged when it comes to making links.

Oh, btw, we celebrated Earth Hour last night. We did so last year too, but this year we were out until 8.45pm, so we came home into a dark house. Jack, our funny Jack Russell wasn't too happy coming inside to a dark house and having to go to the laundry where he sleeps, in the dark. I really had to rattle the doggy treat jar loudly to get his attention! Nicholas had fun brushing his teeth in the dark, before heading off to bed. Personally, I'd be quite happy to spend the rest of my life going to bed at 9pm to save the planet!

I've framed one cross stitch piece already this morning, the Lizzie*Kate's Love Letters. 1 piece finished completely, only 8 more to go!

Happy Stitching

Nice progress on your SAL. You had better get busy filling it up!

Wow, I think you have a handle on "Largest Useless Jar" (LOL). Great start.

It's real easy to do a link:

Highlight the words you want to be in the link.
Look at that menu bar where you would change the font???? There is a little icon that looks like a link in a chain. If you roll you mouse over it, it will say "LINK". Click that. A window will come up. Type in the address (, don't forget the http or it won't work. Click OK. The words you had highlighted will now be a link.

Good for you! Darkness can be fun, especially when it's for a good cause.
