TUSAL for July

Tonight's the new moon and time to post my progress picture for the Totally Useless (but very artful) Stitch-A-Long hosted by Yoyo at DragonMyNeedle. Not a huge amount added this month. I've been stitching mostly with Caron Waterlilies (Jade) and stitching over one on 28 ct (or perhaps 32 ct - I haven't stopped to count it) even-weave. So one ply goes a long way; hence, not a lot of ortage.

I want to show off a beautiful scissor fob my dear friend SU made for me. Isn't it just darling? I'm in total awe of anyone that crochets or knits at all, but start doing the tiny stuff with thread and the little hooks and needle with multiple 0's I just swoon. For Christmas, SU had knitted a mini sweater scissor fob for me. When summer rolled around I took that fob off -- not the season, you know. The next time I saw SU I apologized for not having it on the scissors, it being summer and all. The next week, when I saw SU again, she surprized me with this lovely summer frock with pettycoat and matching hat with flowers. How dear a friend is that??

I call this "Still Life with Orts". *snicker* I crack myself up some times. Remember, all the pictures are clickable if you want to get an up-close look at something.
