Friday Five

 1. Instagram   I have recently been using Instagram to keep a collection of photos of my finished Cross Stitch Pieces. Now when I want to show someone a photograph of a completed stitch, I can quickly find it on Instagram instead of scrolling through pics on my phone. This also allows me to keep my phone storage at a minimum. 

2. Ornament from Eddie's. Some of you wanted to know what I purchased at Eddie's. I got his menorah  as I like to think of the Jewish roots of Christianity.

3. Another ORT bag for Grimmwood. I had been on the lookout for another one of these to take to Grimmwood but they are hard to come by at Hobby Lobby.  I had a lucky find yesterday.

4. Pumpkin Pie Essential Oil. I have been diffusing this fall oil in my living room and it smells so good. I add a bit of orange oil to it and it smells like Thanksgiving Morning.

5. Needle Threader It has become harder and harder for me to see to thread my needle. Hoping this cuts down on the time I spend licking and poking that thread into the eye of the needle.

What a precious ornament you picked up at Eddie's, Arlene! Using Instagram is a good way to have your pictures right at your fingertips. I bet it smells divine with the diffusing of the Pumpkin Pie oil. Happy Friday!

I can almost smell that pumpkin pie oil! You are smart to keep your pictures on Instagram and free up your camera. Hope you have a good Fridy and upcoming weekend.

I have a pattern for one of those Ort collectors and I have yet to make one. Probably cheaper at HL though:) I think I will go get one of those needle threaders out of my sewing box. Never used it but it was in Mama's stuff.

I have never heard of an ORT bag so it must be something for you stitchers. I tried to Google it and still am not sure what it is! I like the ornament and agree with you that we should honor the Jewish roots of our Christianity. I use a needle threader all the time but mine is bent and old and not at fancy as yours!

Arlene, I must have missed the post about the bags. Is it a special type of bag? I can't picture how to use it.

Love the menorah ornament. I wish there was an Eddie's here.

A needle threader is a must for me! Yours is fancy!
