I made a very simple embroidery for a birthday card for my aunt.
I don't know about you, but I find it hard to judge how much thread I'll be needing for a seam. Often I am left with a length that is too short to use, and too long to throw away, if you see what I mean. Such snippets of thread, or (long) orts, are just right for a Lazy Daisy chain stitch flower.
From now on I will collect my stray ends in a jar and eventually make an orts embroidery.
