Orts?? What's an Ort?

Ort: noun; a snippet or leftover bit of thread, usually resulting from a voracious addiction to handcrafted needlework.

Where do YOU keep your orts? The little guy in the pics is where I keep mine. It was given to me as a gift from a dear friend over 15 years ago. She was also a stitcher! Obviously whoever painted the lid wasn't... LOL (It should say JP Coates)

I need one like that. I use a little metallic trashcan that I got from Wally world...

Yours is much cuter
