Day #22 - Universal Unity and TUSAL #1

Day #22 of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is Universal Unity, a kit from Dimensions Gold Collection.  I actually started this one in 1998 and stitched on it for 6 weeks, then I never touched it again until yesterday. You can see that I started on the gray squirrel next to the deer.  You can see a pic of what it will look like when it's finished on my UCJC 2012 page.

It's time for the first TUSAL with a pic of my new ORT dish for 2012!  I thought this star-shaped heavy glass dish was cuter than my jelly jar from last year.  This has all the floss bits from all my new starts in January.  I'll have to think of a more interesting place to take pics of it for next time!

Hi Debbie! Your ort dish is adorable, and I love the progress you've made so far on Universal Unity...you are so smart to start complete some of the backstitching as you finish parts of the pattern. Saving it all until the end is no fun AT ALL (and you don't need to ask me how I know either lol) Keep up the super stitching!

Oh I love your TUSAL star :) You gave me an idea of taking my next tusal pic :)
It's nice to pick up a stitching from years back and continue. I sure hope you'll get it ready with UCJC :D

Happy stitching and hugs
Mia
