The ORT Report

It's the New Moon! Let's see those ORT jars!

Here is mine for the last month...not as good as last month but I'm okay with that. It was a horrible month for me and I'm just glad it's over! Most (all?) of these ORTs are from my Ornament Swap project. No fair trying to guess what it could be, Angela!!!


And...because I am way behind on posting things that have come in for the Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long giveaway, here is a peek at another donation! All of these goodies have come from Kelly of Kelly's Miscellaneous Thoughts and Stitching. Wow! Kelly is spoiling us with the stash, isn't she?



Lots of charts and kits from Lavender & Lace, The Trilogy, Heart in Hand and Little House Needleworks. Oh, heaven! I loves them all. Thank you Kelly! Now, if that isn't inspiration to keep posting those ORT Reports, I don't know what could motivate you!

Thank you, thank you and thank you for all the happy birthday wishes left on my Facebook wall and in email yesterday. I had an absolutely lovely birthday. I got to buy lots of stash and we went to see a movie and went out for a yummy dinner. A great birthday celebration! Thank you all for making my special day even better!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I love the idea of your jar! I'm too late to join in with you all of course, but I might just get a jar and start one myself, just for the fun of seeing all the colour changes through the year.

:)

Christine said...

Belated Birthday Wishes Sharon, glad you had a nice day.
Less orts for the month means less frogging, so a small jar is a good thing ;)

Roses are red
and violets are blue
your ORT's are just great
and Happy Birthday to you

:-)

Big Hugs to you.
Hey - the TUSAL stash is getting better and better every day - how enthused are the lovely stitchers??

Dani - tkdchick said...

Oh Sharon sorry I missed wishing you a Happy Birthday, there seems to be quite a few of us stitching bloggers celebrating birthdays this month! Mine's at the end, the 27th. I hope your family and friends made it a special day for you!

Lookie at those wonderful xmas colours in your ort jar. Now my ort jar dosen't jsut have one month's worth of orts as I add to it all year long, but its neat to see the layers develop.

Hesztia said...

Happy Bday, Sharon! :))
