Every year I save my orts in a bonbon jar my MIL bought me from a second hand shop a few years ago. I love glass and this jar really caught my eye. It looks great as the year progresses and it gets filled with all my orts, their different colours shining through.
I need a full jar as I use the orts to fill an ornament. Every Christmas/New Year I stitch an ornament for the tree and stuff it with the orts. With being sofa bound yesterday and today I have stitched and finished my 2016 orts ornament.
It's Blackwork Journey by Yuletide Memories and is in the 2016 Just Cross Stitch Christmas magazine.
