It's an acronym weekend. As a Special Education teacher, I'm used to sounding like I'm from another planet when speaking with my peers, so I find it awesome when both of the Stitching groups fall in the same weekend.
The first is TUSAL - Totally Useless Stitch Along. My ORTS have grown considerably, but I have one daughter who cannot stand to see the jar filling. Because the threads just seem to be compiling, she just has to smoosh them into the jar. Hence, it doesn't seem as full as it did prior to her smooshing.
It is also the beginning of the International Hermit & Stitching Weekend which takes place every 3rd weekend of each month. In our very busy and hectic lives, IHSW is a chance for us to squirrel some time away for ourselves and "Hermit and Stitch." It is a time set aside to take care of us and our love for stitching.
My plan is to work on Jordan's Baby Sampler, so I want to post my current WIP picture for comparison.
Now, here's to hoping that I get a lot done on it!
