My jar is still look pathetic now and I am looking forward to make it full! To make it more attractive I put my daughter's pic when she was 6mo next to it :D
I started collecting ORT since I started blogging on cross stitch and found TUSAL logo on most of stitchers' blogs. I think its a fab idea, all this time I didn't know what to do with the snippets of floss left over from my stitching, usually I just left them wherever they fell, hoping that next time my vacuum cleaner would pick them up :)
Most of my first batch of ORT came from my 'Keep Calm' project, here is the snap shot before I filled them in:
The pattern is from Cross Stitch Crazy magazine ed 161 (March 2012). I am very close to finish it, only word KEEP from the last series Start Stitching needs to be filled but I ran out of B5200 thread. I thought I had a couple but later I realise they were actually blanc. I have to wait until next week when my husband is back from his trip to India, because going to cross stitch & hobbies shop alone with two active toddlers is the least I want to do in this summer heat!
I hope everybody else get a lot of stitching done and managed to fill their jar full :) I have been trying to do blogwalking and leave comments as many as possible but its very frustrating because my laptop/internet is going very slow recently. I dont know why but our landlord did warn us that during summer the internet connection is very slow and sometimes unreliable :( with slow connection reading cross stitch blogs is really testing my patience and I got annoyed to wait all the pictures to load (sometimes with no resulr after waiting for quite long time!).
If you get a good connection I hope you do not forget to enter great and generous giveaways from Melissa (ended today), Anne (ended June 23rd), Teresa (ended June 23rd), and Milli (ended June 26th). I believe there are many more, I saw some last night but at that time I have lost patience with the connection. Maybe when it gets better I would track them again, I hope I will still have enough time :) Giveaways are amazingly fun, I tempted to make one too but firstly I need to find out where the post office is :))
