November ORT Report

Last month was so depressing I have no words to express. Losing Cathey was heartbreaking. I want to thank those of you that participated in my Pumpkins for Cathey event. I am sure all the blog posts gave our dear Pumpkin a bit of cheer.

My ORT jar greatly suffered my lack of stitching mojo. How sad:

Let's see your ORTs! TUSALers leave a comment on this post with the address to your November update. If I decide to host a giveaway at the end of the year you will receive an extra entry! Are you wondering what on Earth a TUSAL is? Click here for info!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

It was very sad news about Cathey. She will very greatly missed.
I have posted my TUSAL for this month, on time.

Barbi said...

I agree! It was a very sad month. I was so happy to see the huge response to Pumpkins for Cathey day. I literally had tears of joy for her! And in so short a time the tears were for such sorrow. My heart still breaks for her little guy.

It has been sad...I found myself not wanting to stitch or blog much after the passing of Cathey.

Maybe she knew how much we loved her. Maybe she could feel the love from us all and it made it easier for her to leave us. Just a thought.

A little threads is better then none. Your jar looks great!

How is Molly dog doing? Getting into anything new?

Have a wonderful day!

Linda said...

Here is the link for my TUSAL for the month.

Hugs to you.

I came to "know" Cathey just this month and soon she was gone. My heart was so saddened by this. She was in my prayers as her family now is. I went to see all the pumpkins myself and they were such a beautiful tribute to her and I'm sure she was so blessed!

I'm afraid my own ORT jar is quite sad looking, too. I haven't been picking up my needle much, but intend to do just that this month!

Many blessings - Julie

Catherine said...

This has been a tough year all around ~ I lost two other dear people in the week following Cathey...
I was happy to find out that she did indeed see our posts for her!

Brendon Jones said...

You will find your mojo again! I like participating in this because I like looking at what everyone else is working on.

Keep your head up. Sending you long distance hugs!

katica said...

I won't be able to post mine till later this month as I am out of town

Sending you hugs... I didn't know Cathey or her blog till your pumpkin post, but it is never easy to lose someone you love

Chris said...

I am still so sad over our loss and angry too.
Here is my ort report.

Pam in IL said...

I don't think words can express the sorrow we all feel. I believe she knew and felt the love from all of us.

The piece you're working on is so cute! A few threads in the jar are better than no threads in the jar.

Bonnie Brown said...

Great orts!

Mine is up :)

Bonnie Brown said...

Yes hearing of Cathey's passing was very sad. I still think of her often. Some orts are better then no orts!

The Inspired Stitcher said...

It has been a sad month indeed. Try to remember to good times and giggles you shared with Cathey. Here's my ORT report:


Shelly said...

It was a sad month alright. Just reading Cathey's blog, you could tell she was bigger than life.

Here's my orts

diamondc said...

Love the start on your project I love the colors.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I'm sure Cathey loved all the pumpkins and her family will take comfort in reading all the posts and comments people have made.

Here's my TUSAL:

I'm glad you invited me to share Pumpkins for Cathey. The design you're stitching looks very beautiful and I'm sure it will touch your heart and remind you of her.

Nice design you are working on.

you're right, it was a sad sad month indeed. I started re-reading Cathey's blog from the start, sometimes it's very painful - sometimes it's so funny I find myself laughing out loud. we all have to thank her for being the great woman she was.

here's my TUSAL report, only a few days late.

it has been a very sad month indeed !
I think many of us lost a bit their mojo and almost all of us had a special thought for her on Pumpkin day...
lovely piece you're working on

CrossAStitch said...

I'm sorry about the loss of your friend. Being new to the community I wish I had come to know her. She was very well loved!
