...by adding eleven days of ORTs to my Totally Useless SAL jar. The first half of August kinda slipped by me and I completely forgot about posting at the New Moon! This is the nice way of saying I am actually really ditzy and can't keep track of time! My ORT jar is pleasingly full though and I was able to stitch quite a bit in the last weeks. If I'm on track for the next New Moon the jar might seem a little scanty ~ with eleven missing ORT days!
You can join us on the TU SAL just grab an empty jar, save those ORTs and snap a photo at the New Moon! There is a link in my sidebar but the originator of this project seems to have disappeared!
My over-one Christmas ornament is complete. I overlooked the fact that stitching this over-one would make my buttons way too large to fit. Now, I'm going to have to find some incredibly tiny buttons to make the holly berries. Here's hoping the needlework stores will carry miniature red buttons so I can finish this! Also, stitching over-one meant I had to make the center dividers all Smyrna crosses since the other specialty stitches wouldn't work. I love Smyrna's...so that's a good thing.

The focus now is my Ornament Swap project and that blasted June suitcase on Snapper Year. I also have another little stitch completed and needing finishing, if I will ever get up the guts to drag the sewing machine out and just do it!
