Ceremony of the ORTs

I'm a little late with posting but I assure you, the ceremonial dumping of the ORTs went off on time!
Here is my little monthly jar next to my big ORT container. Reluctantly, I included the dreadful Ball of Shame.


The little jar is now clean and ready to be filled with the next month's offerings. I think I'll offer the Ball of Shame to the birds. I really can't stand looking at the little sucker anymore! If you'd like to save your ORTs and show us the results every new moon there is a link in my sidebar for the TU SAL (Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long) We'd love for you to join in!

I had the nicest surprise in my mailbox last week from Karen. She made these darling little note cards & folder and sent them as a thank-you gift for the RAK I sent her. Aren't they precious? She is obviously very talented at papercrafting! Thank you so much, Karen!



Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Cute note cards. :-)

That's a lot of orts. I haven't stitched any lately --- no orts for me.

Pumpkin said...

LOL! You're too funny Sharon ;o)

Wow! She made those? Lovely and what a nice thank you gift :o)

Annette said...

The big and small jar look great. All those lovely colors..
The cards you get are so beautifull. Enjoy them.
How is May doing???

Hi,
I bet the birds are going to have fun with the orts and nice pretty gift.

Robin said...

I love your way of using a smaller monthly jar that you 'pour' into the larger jar. I haven't posted my orts yet for this latest phase of the moon either so you are ahead of me!

Really cute notecards! You won't believe what I did with my LHN May sampler. I miscounted and one of the top borders is 1 stitch off making the two side borders off as well. I am so disgusted with myself that I have put it aside until I decide what to do with it! See, you aren't the only one.

Nancy said...

Your ORT jar really does look pretty, and I'm sure the birds will welcome your "ball of shame"!

What a lovely gift!

Donna said...

It's a shame that the ball of shame is almost bigger than your orts for the month. I agree, the birds would make a nice nest of it and it would go to a good use!

mbroider said...

You are right about the Ball of Shame. Birds can do all the pecking they want!!

Enjoy your thank you gift!!

Aha, btw the word verification for me reads 'spotorts'!! What a coincidence!!

Lesleyanne said...

Lovely notelets. I love all the colours in your orts. Definately give the ball of shame to the birds.

Elaine said...

Oh dear Sharon you are gonna need counselling for that ball of orts soon...LOL!
Pretty notelets.

Julie said...

Karen is very talented, what a lovely gift to receive and so useful.

I'm sure the birds will be very grateful for the 'ball of shame' i nice liner for their nest

Kathy A. said...

Oh too funny. There really isn't a ball of shame - that's just your learning curve assembly!!! It gave you more orts for the jar!

Annie said...

That's just too weird when particular orts represent bad memories! Glad I'm able to view my orts dispassionately! ;-)

Love those note cards!

Christine said...

Thats a lot of orts! Love the notecards

Gina said...

Your orts are very long!! Do you stitch using the loop method?

Lynn said...

There's a lot of stitching going on judging by the orts in that vase.
Pretty notecards! I love the colours.

Karan said...

Those baby birds will thank you for the nest lining. Gorgeous notecards & folder. :0)

Deb said...

The notecards are so cute! And that's an awful lot of ORTs. But that's a good thing - means a lot of stitching is being done.

Cathy B said...

You crack me up...ball of shame!

Carol said...

What a sweet gift from Karen--love the bright colors. It makes you happy just to look at those notecards!

Carolyn NC said...
