You really ort to see this !

Did you come to laugh at my terrible spelling in the title ?
Well I've got you bluffed because this is how you spell ort which is just another name for leftovers and in this case leftover threads .
This is pretty much the extent of the crafting , if you can call it that , that I can show you this week as everything else I've done has been hurled across the room in a hissy fit !
Sometimes things just don't work out !
I hope to be back soon with something that has worked out and of course that means a giveaway .
In the meantime you may admire my orts in the jars looking so sweet and we'll all just pretend I'm crafty !

Hi,
At long last I have found someone else who uses the phrase "hissy fit". I said this once at work and everyone looked blank! I love the litte jars. Making some at school with my students. Part of the challenge is to source an unusual shaped jar. i have some dinky round rounds like these that had jam in them.

Kerryanne English said...

I'm lovin' this word ORT.
When the kids ask what's for dinner I'll say "just ORT" [giggle].

There maybe no finished projects this week Clare but the ort arrangement is very creative.

So..if 'Orts' are leftover threads..what are those left over ends of yarn called?
I hate to throw them away ..it seems such a waste and they always look so colourful in a pile on my table!
Thank for the comment on my blog, I like yours very much and shall be following it from now on!

Hi Clare!

Thanks for the nice compliment that you left on my blog. yes, the 3Day 60 mile walk for Breast Cancer was quite an accomplishement, but was for a good cause.

I LOVE your Orts! As a longarm quilter I always have a bunch of leftover threads. I've just been saving them in a drawer. Now I will have to find a pretty jar to display them in!!!

thanks,
tammy

Robyn said...

Just thinking with a longer tie on the top the 'orts' would make lovely decorations on a Christmas tree as they already look like little baubles!

Jilly said...

Ever since I saw this post. I have been saving my left over threads.
I love the idea!!
Mine you, it has given my Hubby a good laugh!!!
