The word “ORTS” originates from Europe and means “Scraps”. This little pot is ideal to keep in your needlework basket so whenever you go stitching you can dispose of your waste threads. The attached cord and clip is ideal for keeping your favourite scissors safe! Alternatively the design is also the ideal size to make a firm little back support cushion for yourself or a friend.
I chuckled to myself as I sketched the initial images for this project. Each of the little birds are modeled from some of the wonderful ladies I have had the pleasure of teaching over the years. They have been from all different backgrounds and cultures, but we have shared so many ideas, stories and laughs. The scene in this design typifies the beginning of class when my regular students haven’t seen each other for a fortnight … so much to talk about and catch up on! Jenny
