Last year I took part in It’s Daffycat’s Totally Useless Stitchalong. (TUSAL) I missed the last update in December and never showed off my year of thread, so here it is now. I can’t bring myself to throw it away, so I’ve been keeping it until I decide what to do with it.
And now it’s 2014 and I have a new ORT (old ratty threads) jar. I haven’t stitched a ton this year, so it’s not very exciting yet. Right now there is a lot of thread pieces from my hexagon sewing.
There’s something about a big jar of thread scraps that is so satisfying!
You can see all the TUSAL updates from last year here.
I bought some special dissovable fabric/paper/stuff. You basically lay your threads on it, stitch all over it on the machine, then dissolve the paper/fabric/stuff and you can make bowls and stuff out of it. What a terrible description that was!
I actually just saw a thing on Pinterest about making bowls with yarn. I think they used glue but I’ll definitely look into that paper!
Neat! I think the jumble of colors is so pretty. Could you use craft glue to sitck it to the outside of glass votives?
Oooh that would be pretty!

This is a really neat idea.
I received a clear ornament at Christmas. So I’m putting some of my threads in there:)
