Belated TUSAL

Somehow I managed to forget to include the TUSAL post with my Theme-tas-Stitch post on Monday, so here it is now, only a little bit late.


It's TUSAL time, the Totally Useless SAL where we all show our ORTS and link-up on Daffycat's blog.

Here is my TUSAL with the current project:

I have a lot of ORTs this month as you see from the close-up of the ORTS tin before it was put into the main jar:

The project is Dragon of the Winter Moon by Dragon Dreams stitched on 32 count Moondust Murano by Crafty Kitten.  I'm currently stitching Kreinik which is slower than cotton but we're getting there.

I'm also stitching a little bit here and there on Joan Elliott's Reading Fairy which I started for the Guess What SAL.  I just do one length if I have time in the morning after my 10 and 30 a day projects.

Finally, Tiff and I are both stitching dragons for Theme-tas-Stitch Animalia August and it got me thinking about whether there was a group just for stitching dragons.  I've had a look on FB and couldn't find one.  I wondered if this is something people would be interested in.  There are groups for all the different designers who do dragons and for themes like Hallowe'en and Christmas but not for Dragons of any origin.  Let me know and I'll think about setting one up!


  1. Is it that time already :o I completely forgot. You've done a good bit of stitching. Lots of sparkle.

  2. Woo! Pretty ORTs! Kreinik is a pain but so lovely.

  3. Love your dragon Jo. He is looking rather gorgeous. Nice colours in your fairy.

  4. How about Dragons and other fantastical beasts? That would open it up a little. Wonderful progress on your winter dragon, the colors and the fabric definitely give it a cold feeling. The Kreinik is so sparkly and pretty, totally worth the slower stitching.

  5. Neat dragon Jo. Great stitching as usual. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

  6. What a great dragon Jo , looks wonderful .
    Looks like you too stitch on lots of different WIPs like I do, Hugs.

  7. Dragon looks great!! Reading fairy sounds interesting! What does she read? I still have one Rose fairy from the JE series on my todo list.

  8. The dragon is looking fabulous. I'm surprised there isn't a dragon stitching group on FB, if you did decide to start one I'm sure there'd be plenty of people interested

  9. Love dragons! It would be amazing to have a group dedicated to dragons on FB :)
    I keeping forgetting to post my orts... I have a suitcase full!! ;)

  10. That dragon looks really special, Jo.
    I don't stitch dragons although I have a beautiful dragon design in my stash. I once wanted to stitch it for my son but then he lost interest in them. Maybe one day for my grandson ...

  11. Lot's of sparkly threads in your jar! Is the main colour for the dragon a rayon or something? It's so shiny!

  12. He's looking fab!
    Yes for dragons! I have plenty to choose from, let's do it!
