"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Stitching Post Saturday 9/19 + TUSAL
This week, I have an absolutely adorable project to share with y'all and I am finally remembering to do a Totally Useless Stitchalong (TUSAL) update. The whole purpose of the TUSAL is to collect all the orts (small pieces of floss, thread, yarn, or other fibers) that you trim off your stitching projects over the year. You can collect them in the see through container of your choice and, by the end of the year, you have a colorful and possibly artistic representation of your year's activity. I still think that when we get closer to the end of the year, I will buy some clear glass ornaments to put the orts in. My container is getting quite full...
All those lovely yellow and black pieces of yarn at the top are from my latest crochet project. I've been modifying a pattern I found online to create a pig. Except for legs, he is done. I crocheted around wire so the tail could be curly.
