December ORT Report

It's the last New Moon of 2012...do you know where your ORTs are? Mine are not plentiful but good enough for all that happened in the past month!  Can you tell these are Blackbird Designs ORTs?


I know I've been promising the new TUSAL sign-up for 2013. It's coming! I haven't forgotten! Those TUSALer's leaving a comment on this post receive an extra entry in the 2012 giveaway. That is coming up soon as well. 



Here is the project I've been sloooowly working on, the only ORTs in my jar. This is a nearly completed BBD Tweet Hearts Exemplar #2. It was a struggle to finish the first one (a heart shaped pillow) and I'm hoping this one goes easier.



Fun news: Molly has her first toy! A polka-dot squeaky pig. Whee! The plan (if nothing changes) is to bring Molly home the weekend after Christmas. The breeder tells me she has had her first shot, worming and weighs five pounds. They are also using the name "Molly" with her so she can begin to associate it with herself. We are really looking forward to the last few days of 2012!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Oh what a nice addition. I've fallen off with blogging, I need to post my WIP and my TUSAL.
I am currently left with a ferret shaped void as of yesterday. Too soon to fill it, but hubs doesn't want any more ferrets.
Enjoy Molly! I have a friend with a Border Collie/Bloodhound and Dad's are ? mixed puppies. She still has all 8 and is trying to find homes for them.
