Even though there were two New Moons in July I was able to create a massive pile of ORTs in my jar. It didn't even matter that I've been doing quite a bit of over-one stitching, which usually results in spindly ORTs. Just look at all these thread ends! I am thinking the unbearably hot weather has a lot to do with more stitching time. It's nice to sit and stitch inside with air conditioning!
My ORT jar is pictured here with a little project I started on a short road trip to Kansas City. You know how much I like Autumn/Halloween designs. I cannot resist crows and pumpkins! It's not finished but it is close. I'm still trying to decide if I want to stitch a little border around the design. Your thoughts?
Next up, we have had some Totally Useless Stitch A Long donations for the giveaway!
Bronny, of Bronny's Bits, sent us a sweet little scissor fob, two quilted coasters and a few skeins of DMC. Notice that woolly bit to strap the sheepie to your scissors? Cute! Thanks Bronny!
Then Maria, of Between The Stitches, sent a Lizzie*Kate Snippet and some nice fabric to stitch it on. I hope nobody minds if I end up stitching this design real quick before it goes on to the winner, if I can squeeze it in? I promise to use my own fabric! LOL Thank you, Queenie!
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
