July WIPocalypse

I'm not going to tell you a big story about how I am late yet again because I think I've used all of those up, I'll just get into the post itself!
The topic of the month is How do you get yourself out of a stitching drought? and I'm not really sure I've had one of these (well, not since I started stitching again and made this blog). Yeah, my hobbies ebb and flow, sometimes I will spend some more time on one or the other, but there's always room for a little stitching - and I've learned to just let the slower times happen, they always pass on their own :)

Now for my SALs - all that delay gave me actually time to work on them! Mamluk and the Blackwork SAL are both past their halfway mark now:

The Temperature SAL now has all of July - as you can see, we hit another hot spell last week. I even got to break out a new red...there's just one more on my scale now, and that would mean an average temperature of 30°C+, so I really hope I won't need that!

I also did the 'Stitch a Day' thing again for July, and I think I missed a day or two but I still made good progress on my Mermaid. Still no page finish, but I'm getting close!

Then, of course, there is my '-19 in 19' thing still going on, even though I'm not doing so well...probably a good thing I forgot to even mention it last month for the half year recap, because things did not look to good then, but now I made it to 46 at least, and hope to have a few more finishes this month!

All great progress, despite the mini heatwave. Everything's looking great, especially Mermaid whose colours are so soothing. :)

Your progress always amazes me. Everything looks great. Hoping you don't get to the last red (unfortunately we spend most of our summer in that color range)

All great progress - I love how your blackwork is looking. At least you have managed to post, even if late. I completely forgot x

Nice work. The Temperature SAL looks good with the added red. Mermaid is just wonderful too.

Thank you. Eek, that doesn't sound pleasant at all - I hope you get to spend the hot days in a comfortably climated room.
