I Wasn't Dreaming After All


Thank you once again to everyone who tried to find the scrap link; I did manage to find it in the end, I went back into my internet History where I eventually found it on my old laptop, then it took me ages to bring it up as my old laptop it so slow, hence the new one, anyway I am talking of course about 'totally useless stitch a long' or TUSAL The website in question is daffycat   
 You need to join to be in on this and I have applied but have not received an answer as yet but I’m still going to do it anyway.  I’m sure it doesn’t matter if its threads or yarn that you put into your container as Sharon of daffy- cat says anything goes.
I have decided to have a smaller container to collect my scraps in and then empty them into a larger one every month, I haven’t yet decided whether I should just let it fill up naturally or give it a stir to mix all the colours.  Then of course one has to decide whether or not to keep squashing them down until you can’t possibly get another piece of yarn in there or let them lie naturally and loosely as they fall mmm… decisions, decisions.  I think the container will look quite pretty no matter how I decide to fill it, and once it's full I will be able to cast my eyes upon it with pride knowing how much work I have achieved to produce such a wonderful display.  Then maybe a pretty crochet lid to decorate for the final touch. 
Come on and join me let’s have a beautiful scrap container display, it doesn’t matter how long it takes or how many you have,  I know it’s silly but it’s fun or maybe I’m just nuts you decide haha
The next New moon is on the 19th July when I will reveal my scrap jar and the one in which I have chosen to display my beautiful end products of productivity, and hopefully I will have heard from Sharon by then and will be able to add the TUSAL button for a direct link to her website.

  1. Welcome to the Totally Useless Stitch A Long, Linda! I'm so glad you were able to find me!

    By the way...the TUSAL is updated on the NEW moon NOT the full. Next one is the 19th of July!

  2. How fantastic - what a great idea....I keep my piles of cut ends as long as I can - until I have to tidy them away...I've even taken photos of them- I love all the colours! If they are high wool content I keep them to felt with...which reminds me I should put them to good creative use soon!
    When our son was much younger he kept a few loose yarn ends in a cup and called them worms....he still has them!
    Looking forward to seeing your containers colourful contents!

    1. Why don't you save them in a nice container Ali, it seems a shame to tidy them all away when you could have them on view and admire them every day :)

  3. I love this idea... I have a small trash can by the side of my chair and I always just toss them away in there and when full it goes into the bigger trash can... so I think I might join in on the fun... I don't think it's crazy at all.. Can't wait to see how fast my jar fills up!!
    Thanks for sharing your idea!

  4. I am glad you found it!!! I have my scraps in an unsightly box, and it would be a good idea to move it into a glass container. All the fluffy mixed colors look cute.
