My Orts 2015

What is an 'Ort'?
Definition: The snippets of floss left over from stitching are called Orts from an archaic term that means scraps. Many stitchers save the orts for other craft projects.

Ort may also be said to stand for "Old Ratty Tails". Some stitchers snip them smaller and leave them out for the birds to put in their nests. If you do this avoid heavily dyed flosses and metallics that might be hazardous to wildlife.

I am going to take a picture of my ORT Jar at each new moon of 2015. 
There is a Blue Moon July 31st, 2015.
