This is Bothy Threads cut-thru North Pole House.  I'm ashamed to even show the very tiny amount of stitching that I got done.  I managed to stitch the green wall and pink wallpaper.

TUSAL and Updates

Hi Blogger Friends.  I sure hope that your not all getting tired of seeing the same pictures every week.  I think I need to dig out some different ones and work on them during the month.
I have several gals leaving comments that are a no reply.  I just wanted to say thank you to them and all of you for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments.

Cut-thru Stable - I am very, very happy with the progress I made on this yesterday.  I did the backstitching from the blue Tack bucket, red bucket, rope and hay across to the grain sacks.  I also got quite a bit of stitching done on the bottom.

Fall Welcome - Diane Arthurs - only backstitched Fall and some on the basket

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Prairie Schooler - only did some of the green

My ORTS for the month
Are you wondering what a Totally Useless Stitch-a-long is.  You can read all about it on Daffycat's Blog.
