TUSAL 2013

So much for posting SAL posts on time this year:) I meant to get my orts posted this weekend but life kind of got in the way. The flu has hit my area pretty hard so work has been crazy busy with people trying to treat for it and lots still coming in for flu shots. Thankfully no one in our family has gotten anything except the occasional cold this flu season. Also, we've been busily putting the finishing touches on our dossier which has now been sent out and according to our agency is being shipped to Poland as I type. We've got our fingers crossed that 2013 will be our year for some good adoption news.

Until then, I'm going to do my best to finish QS Pirate Dragon so that it can hang in Josh's new bedroom after we do whatever switching around and redecorating we will need to do as we expand our family. He's very excited about seeing his dragon come to life as I stitch. Here's where I stand now...

The dark blue water has been pretty free of confetti so that has been nice but I'm looking forward to getting to the dragon again on the next page. Speaking of all that blue, my ort jar is almost completely blue this round...

I'm a little light in the orts this time since I just emptied it on January 1 but I'm hoping to get back to filling it up now that adoption paperwork and the holidays are over. Just in case the TUSAL is not something you are familiar with- its a fun monthly stitch-a-long run by Daffycat to show off your ort jar (all those little leftover thread scraps from stitching) and what you've been working on to fill it up.
