CLICK HERE to go to Sharon’s It’s Daffycat blog to read all about the Totally Useless SAL and discover why I’m posting pictures of thread snippets, otherwise known as orts.
The Silly Stitching Calendar says I had 11 stitching days since TUSAL check in last month. All the orts are from Jane Turner – and that’s the last time I’ll say that!
What I kept thinking of as not-quite-orts - threads a bit too long to really be considered orts - were tucked into one of the sections of my project thread box so I could use them when I needed to do just a small number of stitches. I sorted through them and the ones laid out straight will be wound back onto the appropriate bobbins while the rest join Jane's other orts.
Here are ALL of Jane's orts since I started working on her in 2015. Rats - I forgot to take a picture of them in their pretty little jar. Oh well, they're all together in the big ort jar now.
For anyone who hasn’t already seen Miss Jane in all her glory:
Jane provided all this month’s orts because I haven’t stitched since I finished her – that’s TWO ENTIRE WEEKS!! (*gasp*) Besides going to work, I’ve been reading, weeding, and working on a couple house projects with Wonderful Husband.
And trying to figure out what to stitch next.
Happy stitching, everybody, I’m so glad you stopped by to visit me today!
