TUSAL and more stitching done

First, I must show you the lovely flowers that arrived from our #2 son and d-i-l for Mother's Day...

 Thank you, Shawn and Winnie!!

I'm a couple of days late posting my entry for the TUSAL* challenge, but here it is....


Above is my pile of ORTS for the past month,
and below is my jar of ORTS dating from
the first of January.


One of the sections on my current crazy quilting project is nearly done.  Here you can see a button cluster (bottom of first picture)  and there's a real blingy button on the bottom picture, stitched down over top of a metal flower meant originally for scrapbooking.  The bling didn't show quite as bright as it is in real life.



* TUSAL (Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long);  ORTS (old recycled threads).  If you would like to know more about the TUSAL challenge, click on the link in my sidebar.
