July TUSAL post and Coffee!

I'm so close but not finished yet with Let's Do Coffee!  I still have to backstitch the coffee beans in the handle, then stitch two more rows of words in the saucer.
Let's Do Coffee update #4
I'm SURE I can finish this today after work. I already have a frame ready to pop it in, then I'll wrap it up, pack it in a box, and mail it tomorrow to my friend for her birthday!

It's time for the Totally Useless Stitch-a-Long again!  Share a picture of your ORT (old ratty threads) jar. Read all about the TUSAL HERE.  Check in on Daffycat's blog with a link to your July TUSAL blog post, too!
TUSAL 2013 #7
I took the picture outside by this big flower bush with clusters of little berries.  It grows like a weed and I don't even know what it's called!  It's about 5 feet high now.  Can anyone identify it?

CORRECTION: Thanks to AnaCristina, now I know this is Lantana!

I've been thinking this whole time that you were going to drill holes in actual coffee beans to make the handle, lol. It's looking great, and congratuations on finishing a stitchy gift on time (I've never heard of such a thing!)
