The ORT report & Update

See I told you I would steal your title!  LOL  I love that!  And here's my ort jar with this last month's contribution.

Also here's an update on Sockeye.  I thought I would be finished the head of it this week, but I didn't get it done.  Oh well, it will be done for sure this coming week.  This weekend I'm working on LHN's Cardinal Winter, which I am finding I am calling Tweet in my head rather than the original title.

I did some stash shopping!!!  I couldn't help it!  I broke down!  Darn Nashville Market!  So I'm sure that the packages (yes plural) should be arriving in the mail this coming week as well.

I went and bought all the floss that I needed for Elizabeth, that Kati and I will be starting in our Sunday SAL, starting the 13th. I noticed that she uploaded the new pic on her sidebar so I snagged it for mine as well (Thanks K!)  I found the perfect frames for them at Michael's today too!  I was almost tempted to buy them so that I would have them but I maintain some self control and withheld!  Not without much contemplation first!

nice orts, and great progress on the sockeye, its absolutely stunning!

I'm probably going tomorrow to get the threads I need so we can get started next week. I'm pushing the Mirabilia right now since my nieces's birthday is in a couple of weeks and I want to get it done in time for her.

Forgot to add, what stash did you get and from where?? I just got a nice order from Janice at Traditional Stitches, but I'm sure I could fill a cart again easily! I already have a bunch just sitting there at Bobbie's!

The jar looks great with all those orts!

Self-control --- what's THAT all about? When it comes to stitching stashing, I'm full-speed ahead!

A lovely TU update!
