Hello Dear Reader,
Today I'm linking to Daffycat's TUSAL.
The first post for this link, coinciding with the New Moon, was 10th January. I hope Daffycat will excuse me being late, as I am a "Newbie" and I'd like to show my ORTs (leftover threads), which I have collected over the last month.
When I first visited Jo's Serendipidous Stitching for her Halloween blog hop I noticed mention of ORTs on a few of the blogs I visited, and wondered what this was about.
Having now discovered that Daffycat is the organiser, and read her explanation I decided I needed to join in.
I used to drop my embroidery thread ends in a pile on my carpet, picking them up every once in a while - mainly just before visitors arrived!
Now visitors are welcome at anytime - we'll be neat and tidy! And you can see here how many ends used to drop into that pile on the carpet.

|The little blue and fawn thread catcher was|
made a few years ago, and hasn't really
been used it for its proper use, until now!
|The little elastic loop on the side of the thread catcher loops|
over a button on the side of
the main needlecase (see last photo on this page).
|Quite a collection of ORTs! |
i.e. all my cuttings for the last month!

That's it for today! If you are new to my blog, I hope you can spare the time to have a look around - I hope you find something you might be interested in, and that you will return to visit me another day!
If you leave a comment I will be able to visit you too! And maybe we can become buddies!
