Here an Ort There an Ort Everywhere an Ort Ort

Ort \¨òrt\: noun; a snippet or leftover bit of thread, usually resulting from a voracious addiction to handcrafted needlework.

I heard the term ort early last year, it went in one ear and out the other like most things I hear... But I heard it again this week, with a photo attached to it. Well, a photo is worth a 1000 words, and here are some blogs with great ones.

If you know of any others or will share your own, give me a link, cyber photos of Ort containers would be a fun collection, one that didn't take up any room or need dusted. Like blog posts... I think this is the 100th for this blog. Off to my farm in a few minutes, y'all be good, ya hear?

I bobbinlace maker once told me a word that is in no dictionary for this same thing, ort. the word is "Shavelings" which would ryhme with Gavelings. So I use that word every week at Borders. I grab a cardboard coffee cup and walk up and down the table asking for everyone's Shavelings! (Grin)
