TUSAL and IHSW

A wee bit late for my TUSAL and IHSW post but that's how it goes.  Loads of orts this month from all the frogging and stitching I was doing.  I thought I'd try something different to display my orts. 


On Sunday night, I stayed up to 2 am to try and squeeze in as much stitching on Jane as I could since I was robbed of Saturday!
I really want to finish up the motifs then move onto the 1 over 1....so close to finishing her!!!!!!

I've decided that I should start a fall ornie and set aside my Maisonette des Fraises for now.  I had a minimal start on it and now that summer is at an end, I need to look ahead to fall.  Of course dearest Titus got involved in the photo shoot.  It's really hard to move him out of the photo.  I tried to move him away but he kept coming back onto my floss toss! 
This Thursday I am off to Prince George and will be fishing with my family for a few days.  Really looking forward to being on a boat and fishing!!! I'll take some photos of my fish!

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last two posts!!

Hugs from me and Titus!

Love that you did your TUSAL in a fun way. Last year I did pics of all my dogs per month helping me display. hahaha

Once again, your cat takes my breath away. I always wanted a long coat white kitty with blue eyes.

Sorry you only had one day of hermitting, but I can identify with your pain!! I am wondering if I'd actually have enough for a "T" some months.... =)

Margaret said...

Oh my gosh, you are so cute with your TUSAL this month! lol! I'm amazed Titus didn't come along and sit on it all. lol! Love how your Jane is looking -- so gorgeous! I do see differences in color between our Janes, but I think both are just as pretty -- love the colors in yours actually! And Titus -- such a cutie! And those eyes! So blue! Have fun fishing!!

Love how you displayed your orts! Wip is looking great, as well as Titus, lol. But he has kind of suspicious look towards that floss XD

What a nice way to show your orts!

Please don't push away Titus if he wants to get into the pic, it's always nice to see him!!

Chris said...

Great progress on Jane. I don't know how you were able to take that pic of your orts without Titus rolling trough the middle of it. He loves all your stitching stuff doesn't he?
Have a great time fishing!!
