TUSAL - #1
Just for fun, I'm participating in Daffycat's Totally Useless Stitch-a-long ort jar show and tell. Every year, I save all the little orts from all my stitching projects and keep them in this jar. Every December, I pull out all the orts and put them in one of those clear glass Christmas ornaments. On the outside of the ornament, I put Ian's name, age, height and weight. It's great every year to pull out the ornaments and see how he's grown. It's also a great way to tie us together since we both have Christmas birthdays. My love of stitching tied together with my love of him. The projects I work on always have lots of different colors and therefore, I always have lots of different colored orts, which always makes for pretty ornaments!
These are my orts that I've collected so far from my "Love Spoken Here" project. Speaking of which...here's a progress shot....
I still have to put the border on but I'm loving working on this piece. This is a gift for my mom for her birthday, but I see a strong possibility of stitching this again for myself too. :)
