Final Ort Report of 2011

We made it!  Here is Morticia, full to the brim with orts.
The purple bird is a gift from DH - handmade leaded crystal that he purchased in the discount store at the Corning Museum of Glass.  We didn't do "big" gifts this year, but I think this little guy is too cute!  Plus, I have another bird or 2 that my dad gave me years ago.  Now I'm envisioning a shadowbox-style display, perhaps with a stitched piece as the background....hmmm.
The often-dreaded frog perched on the rim was something I picked up myself during the holiday sale at the college bookstore.  I tried using him as a fob, but he was just too big, so for now he just sits, ominously, near my stitching.  LOL

Christmas was lovely here, although rather crazy with a toddler who still doesn't quite "get it."  We've wrapped, assembled, un-wrapped, traveled, eaten, and are now in recovery mode!  Hopefully I'll be back before New Year's with a re-cap of my 2011 stitching.
