A glance at the calendar today caused me to realize that it’s the New Moon, which means that it’s time for my TUSAL update for this month.
I was surprised when I gathered all my orts up and dropped them into the jar. I have a little pouch thing (yes, that’s the technical term) that sits on the arm of the couch for collecting my orts as I’m stitching but it’s not clear, so I have to haul my orts out of the pouch and drop them into my glass jar. I managed to keep my DH out of them this month, so there were no rescue missions from garbage cans…. (And before anyone wonders, he really is a wonderful man and I wouldn’t trade him for anything!)
So here’s my jar:
I have stitched a lot this past month – mostly because I’ve had the entire month off work and there’s been loads of extra time around for stitching. I’ve discovered that when I stop volunteering for everything under the sun and when the number of commitments to other things gets reduced for me (not by my choice, but it is what it is) then there’s suddenly days at a time where I don’t need to leave the house and I can curl up under a warm cat and stitch!
Unfortunately the next couple of months won’t afford me so much free time (I find Feb. through Apr. to be the busy season for the Scientist!). I doubt the jar will take as large of a jump next month!
Speaking of warm cats, there’s one here looking for her lap. I guess I’d better provide it.
