Flying the Flag progress and an ort jar!

Hi there!

I know it has been some time since I last updated the blog, and the reason is that I have been busy with life!

I am now on my third week of the accounting course on Niels Brock that I am doing as activation. It did take some time to get used to getting up at 6 am again. I also know quite a lot of the stuff we've dealt with so far, so I have done almost the entire exercise book. This and a bit of work has made me quite tired in the evenings, so that's why I haven't been able to show you any progress on any of my projects.... until now!

I am stitching away on Flying the Flag, hoping to get it finished relatively soon (meaning this autumn the latest).

As you can see I am in the middle of stitching the second vertical red stripe. When I have finished it, I think it is time to stitch some roses! Will hopefully have a few to show you on the next update.

I would also take the opportunity to introduce you to a newcomer in the family... my ort jar!
An ort jar is a jar where all the scraps of thread from projects are landing. If you want a proper description I would recommend visiting Little Thread Crafts who has explained it a lot better than I can.

Without further ado..... my ort jar!

Yes, it is a little jar. With a very little amount of thread in (can you recognise the colours from Flying the Flag?). It will be beautiful one day. All filled up with colours of threads. And then the fillings might become stuffing in a biscornu. Maybe filling in a nest! Who knows? This is only the beginning....
