I did look around for something new to use for my ORT's this year but so far haven't found the one... so we are back to using the little Moccona coffee jar again. It served my ORT's so well last year that I feel it's only fitting to use it again for 2012.
Remember how every month I would squish down my ORT's so that they would fit in the jar, well when I pulled them out and un-squished them this is what I ended up with. I could have probably stretched them out a bit more but they fit just nicely on the lovely cushion/pillow cover for the photograph. Now I just have to keep them safe until I finish something that I can turn into a pin cushion as I am going to use these beauties as part of the stuffing!

Dragon, Aussie Flags and the ORT's
Happy Chinese New Year! 2012 is the year of the Dragon - and that is me! Unfortunately Hubby was born in the year of the Dog which makes us mortal enemies but in this the Chinese horoscope is so wrong. So welcome to the year of the Dragon! (I guess that this is why I have such a thing for dragons!)
I added the Aussie flag to my TUSAL photo as Thursday is Australia Day. We are having my brother over for lunch and maybe will go to the beach first thing before it gets too hot. The temperature is predicted to get to 41 deg C. A lovely warm day for a day off and a fantastic long weekend... 4 days off work - bliss!
That's it for another TUSAL and ORT report. I look forward to seeing what is sitting in everyone else's ORT's jar.
Oh and by the way, did you see who the lucky lady was that won last year's amazing TUSAL stash addition.
