January 30 TUSAL


This, for those of you who don’t recognize it, is an ORT (old ratty threads) jar. It’s filled with the tail ends of threads from my stitching – the top layer that you can see is from the Firefighter Sampler that I’ve been working on the past few weeks.  I’m using a plain Mason jelly jar, so it’s hard to see through the side, but there’s plenty of room for my planned projects this year.

I saw a picture from last year’s TUSAL where someone (I didn’t mark down where, sorry) had filled a glass Christmas bulb with the remnants from her ORT.  It was lovely, and that’s what I want to do with mine at the end of this year’s project.

If you want to play along, the instructions are at Daffycat’s Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long.  We’ll be posting ORT pics on the new moon dates through the year, and it’s never too late to join up!

  1. I love your idea! And I have a set of 12 ornaments just waiting to be filled.
    But I am a quilter, so my plan is to save those little tiny scraps of fabric that I clip during my piecing and save those.
    Thanks for the great idea.
