I am typing this as we watch the last leg of the Tour de France. While our Cadel Evans has not been able to repeat last year's win, Hubby is happy as there will be a British winner instead! Congrats to Bradley Wiggins. A wonderful ride by a fantastic sportsman - and well done to all the riders that took part. It has been fabulous to watch every night over the last few weeks, even if we couldn't stay up and watch it to the end every night.
So on to the ORT report..
Yep, I know - late again.... The ORT report was due on 19th July, but unfortunately the weekend has just flown by and got away from me. But as they say - better later than never!!
So here it is in all it's glory - my lovely jar of ORT's with it's dragon protector.

I will later this week do a post to show you the fantastic parcel I received in the mail from Olga (Ollie) in the Netherlands as part of the MS Lovers Blog Summer Exchange, and I can also show you what I stitched and sent to Olimpin in Mexico as that has also arrived safe and sound. Oh yes, I was spolit again!!
Before I go I must show you what else I have recently received in the mail....

Can't wait to rip these open and start!
However, don't get too excited dear readers - I have to finish off a couple of things before I can start the Mini Mandala.... namely a birthday card for August & September Craftbubble exchange, 2 cool cats for the MS Lovers Blog SAL, and a Christmas Card for the MS Yahoo Group Christmas Exchange. Once I have made a good start and finish on these things I will then allow myself to start the Mini Mandala.... that will be my reward!!
Well dear readers, that's it for another ORT report. See you all again same time next month... Pop on over to Daffycat's blog if you are interested in signing up or keeping in touch with what is going on with the 2012 TUSAL.
Til the next new moon on 17 August 2012, happy stitching and may your collection of ORT's keep growing!
