TOTALLY USELESS SAL - March


Here is my contribution to the totally useless SAL - as on http://dragonmyneedle.blogspot.com/


I don't have any clear glass containers that are sexy enough - so for the moment my orts are sitting pretty in a little glass container made by Crown Crystal in Australia about the late 40's. This little dish was popular in coffee shops of the time, along with a matching little jug. Sometimes you can find the little glass tray that the two would sit upon. I'm still looking in op-shops for a better container to last the year out....

As I only joined a couple of weeks ago - these threads are from my Mermaid, the bushfire quilt square and Papillion's 2008 SAL that I've been happily stitching. I think my carpet will thank me for collecting the orts in the bowl rather than loosing them on the floor and to the vacuum!

Hello, Bronny. Love your TUSAL container - but I think you'll need a bigger one soon. You have an impressive collection of ORTS there already.

Ah ha, you discovered that the sal is not totally useless after all (LOL). Great container, but Elfie is right, you'll need a bigger one soon.

Love the container, but I hope you progress enough to need a new one!

Love your stitching below. That's a beautiful design.

Nice, and if the container isn't sexy, don't mind, mine is a saucejar.
