Welcome to "The Girl's Gone Crafty!" blog about all things, well, crafty, of course! My name is Raquel, owner of Calico Craft Designs, and lover of all things Craft. I hope that you too will join me on my journey to finishing one more UFO (unfinished object), stitching for charity, and just learning more about the wonderful crafts available out there.

TUSAL Progress - October Update and My Birthday

Yes, yes....I know.  If you have been paying attention, you probably realize that I skipped the TUSAL progress post for September.  I have no excuse other than I simply forgot. :-(

The update for October is actually not due until tomorrow (10/5/13) but I thought I would go ahead and post a photo while I was thinking of it.  This month's jar/glass actually contains two months worth of threads.  As you can see, I have quite a few ORTs and have been making progress on several projects.  I even completed a couple of small cards for Halloween which can be seen in an earlier blog post.

This month's TUSAL photo is sitting beside some beautiful flowers I received for my birthday from my parents.  They are quite lovely and actually are in the shape of a birthday cake.  The rose in the center represents the candle.  I included a photo of the entire arrangement but it's hard to show the shape.  I had a great birthday and even took today off from work as a gift to myself.

The next posting is due November 3rd.  If you're not sure what the heck a "TUSAL" or "ORT" is, be sure to check out the link to the TUSAL challenge by clicking on the list on the main blog page.
