May ORT Report

Remember last month when I had such a skimpy wisp of ORTs in my jar? I'm well pleased with this pile. And since Margaret was showing off her pretty Kleenex box last month I knew I had to show off mine. 'Cause it's even prettier than hers. Sorry, Margaret, I could not resist the funny! Actually, I do like this box and it's always on my stitching desk. I've had it for a looooong time. When it runs empty, I open the taped up end and add new tissues. Is that OCD or what?


Did you see Beth's Quail? Oh my, they are so darling. I wish I had Quail like that in my garden! I know we have Bobwhite Quail nearby, I can hear their clear "Bob-WHITE!" calls but they are nowhere near as adorable as Beth's pair.


I know, I promised a finish...but I'm not done yet. I do have all the stitching complete, it just needs putting together. Besides, I'm behind in my blog-reading. Sheesh, you guys are slave drivers!


Thank you for visiting my blog today!

It may not be OCD but it's definitely something different, lol! I do think the box is pretty though.

Thanks for reminding me it is TUSAL time again and reusing the Kleenex box, I would never have thought of doing that LOL

Emily said...

Thats a great idea .... I might just have to use that when I find a box I really like!! LOL!

Erica said...

Your ORTs look like they've grown quite nicely. I like your tissue box too - it never occurred to me to open the end up and put more tissues in a box I liked! I may have to adopt that one.....

I managed to haul my TUSAL up onto my blog.
