Late to the party!

Dear friends,

     If you're a blogger, you've no doubt seen this over the years: the Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long!  I thought it might be fun to finally join the party, so better late than never!  Besides joining in on the fun, it might be a good way to help keep me posting!  So, each new moon, we post our ORTS, and for one day, here are mine.  You might have to look close, but there are some in there!  I love this little barrel, mustard, bank jar!



     I'm also working on the Snooty Parrots Sampler as part of the Sampler World SAL group!  I got some stitches in early this morning and a few today but don't have a good pic so that'll wait till next time.  Here's the sampler for you to gaze upon - if you haven't seen it already!  If you know me at all, you know it has everything I love - color, alphabets, verse, Adam & Eve and of course, those oh, so snooty parrots!  We have over 260 SAL members stitching this pretty piece so please check us out on Facebook, if you'd like to join in the fun!

Snooty Parrots SAL



     We enjoyed the Winter Classic (hockey) here today (from the comfort of my sofa) and even though the Red Wings lost - it was a great game!

     I hope your first day of 2014 was a good one and that the year ahead brings your hearts desire and lots of stitching!  Thank you for leaving me such nice comments ~ I appreciate the warm welcome back more than you know!

Love and Peace,
XOXO
Terri

Love the sampler! I considered joining as I already had all of the materials, but just didn't think I would be able to keep up. :) I know I will enjoy seeing your progress! Wishing you a very Happy 2014!

The Snooty Parrot sampler is so cool. I'm a huge Barbara Ana fan. I had no idea there was a group for this. But I think it's more than I would take on anyway. Should make for some lovely ORT's too! ;-)

Have a great stitchy, bloggy, year.

Happy New Year Terri! I'm looking forward to watching your Snooty Parrot sampler grow. I'm not stitching it as I'm stitching another (smaller) sampler with the same verse but I'll be rooting you all on!

Hi, Terri,
I'm so glad you are posting again! I love Snooty Parrot, is it a repro, who is the designer? I might need to start this one :)

Hey girlie, welcome to the TUSAL. I've found it keeps me accountable and on track. I think you'll enjoy it too. Although, I haven't posted mine yet...doh!
