Ort Report

This is my 2010 jar of orts.  An ort is the little scrap of thread left on the end of the needle when you finish stitching.  It's a term that means "scrap".  Also in my jar are extra little beads, bands from floss, and a lot of used dull needles.

It's so fun to look at the strata and think of all the projects I completed last year.  That pile of scraps represents a lot of hours of work.

It's time to empty it out and start again.  If you want to play along, sign up with Daffycat.

I generally throw mine away, but that looks really cool. Thanks for the idea.

Are you just adding to this from last time? That's a LOT of stitching!
