What is an ORT? The leftover ends from these stitched pieces are ORTs.
It's Daffycat, another stitcher's blog and she keeps them in a glass jar for color in her studio. You can read about her's in the link in italics. I keep mine in a plastic baggie and I use them for hand stitching. I like the idea of a glass bottle as it would be prettier than the baggie I now use. I'm on the lookout for one that has a large enough opening that my hand can fit and to dig out what I want, good the garage sale season has started. More on that later as I have two types of ORTs that I save for different reasons. I just told you about the first one, when I have something to show for the other use I'll post and share that too.
The one above is a quote I finished today. I say finished, not really, I finished the quote but now I have to put it on something. I think it's going to be a small wall quilt to hang over a small dresser I use in our bedroom, a constant reminder.
The one below you've seen in pieces. Stitched together I like them but think I need more. I'll have to find more of the darker material as I like how the stitches show up better on that but are still not over powering. We shall see where this ends up
