My Totally Useless Update

I’m participating in the Totally Useless Stitchathon. The whole purpose of this is to collect all the orts (small pieces of floss, thread, yarn, or other fibers) that you trim off your stitching projects over the year. You can collect them in the see through container of your choice and, by the end of the year, you have a colorful and possibly artistic representation of your year’s activity. I think that when we get closer to the end of the year, I will buy some clear glass ornaments to put the orts in.


I also have to show you how much my veggies grew over the weekend. This is what I came home to find…

    “Ort” – that’s a damned fine Scrabble word!

    With all the stitching that you do, you’ll need a jar five times the size of the one you have pictured!

    That’s a cool idea! I can’t wait to see all of your objects in ornaments. It’s going to look so cool! Great job on your veggies!
