I'm joining in with Daffycat, albeit late again!
I hope you can see my ORTs at the back of the photo! I was rushing a bit to catch the daylight!
My latest ORTs are sitting between the little pink Mini Thread Catcher and TUSAL jar (to make your own MTC see my "Tutorial" folder, above).
It might not look a lot, but I’m one of those peeps who don’t like to waste any cotton and I stitch to the very end of each piece of thread, sometimes even having trouble securing them because I try to keep stitching when I should have fastened off long ago!
My ORTs were from the following projects ..... after this photo shoot they will join the rest of the ORTs in this year's jar:
Last week I bought a copy of The World of Cross Stitch (issue 266), mainly looking for Easter and Spring projects to stitch for Jo's Easter Blog Hop! And then I treated myself to a few new threads. Can't show you what I'm stitching yet, it would spoil the surprise for the Blog Hop ..... so this weekend I've been happily stitching away on my Easter project, and it's coming along very well!
WoCS even had a small mention about ORTs in this issue! BTW I don't get paid for mentioning this magazine, I just happen to like buying it occasionally!
Another little project from the same magazine ..... in fact, this is their free gift, which comes with an envelope and presentation card.
Actually I've almost finished this one, must take a photo for next update!
|Stitch by Stitch by Anchor|
Stitch by Stitch has progressed further, and, although there is a little more of the frame to stitch, next time you will be able to see some of the picture within the "frame" which I couldn't resist starting last night.
Now I'm off to see who else has added their TUSAL posts to Daffycat's comments HERE.
Thanks for popping by. It's always lovely to know you've visited.
(If you haven't heard of TUSAL or ORTs before do pop over to visit Daffycat to find out all about them, and maybe even join in?!?!)
