Daffycat's TUSAL - come join the fun!

MY collage for 2011, not enough ORTs in there!

The 2012 Totally Useless Stitch-a-long is launched for sign-ups!
If you would like to join the SAL for 2012 leave a comment on THIS POST.   The rules are simple:
1. Get a glass container and save your thread clippings or ORTs (Old Ratty Threads!) Some stitchers include fabric trimmings, thread bands or any other stitching cast-offs they gather. You may continue filling this jar throughout the year OR you may empty the jar and start over each month ~ no firm rules here!
2. On (or about) each New Moon take a picture of the ORTs in your jar and post it to your blog. Yes, you MUST have a blog to be included. Reasonably "late" posts will be accepted, but posting several updates at once is cheating!
3. Yes, you can use your current ORT jar or jars. This is no contest...the stitcher with the most ORTs doesn't win!
4. You must post a picture each New Moon, even if there has been no "progress" to show.
5. Label your Totally Useless posts with "TUSAL" to make it easier for me to find your posts at the end. If you don't know how to "label" your posts email me.
Please DON'T comment on this post if you are not joining the stitch-a-long! Since some of you have multiple blogs, please tell me the name of the blog you will be posting your updates to. I will add your name & blog link to the list in this post. If you have commented and you have not been added to the list within a few days...I may have overlooked me! Questions? Feel free to email me! International bloggers are welcome! 

Some changes to the SAL from last year:
1. New participants are welcome to join at any time, yes, even in December of 2012!
2. I am not accepting stash donations for a prize this year but there will be prizes ~ probably something stitched by me.
There are 12 2012 New Moon Dates:
January 23, February 21, March 22, April 21, May 20, June 19, July 19, August 17, September 16, October 15, November 13,December 13
