The August SALs

 In August, I was very much on top of things and finished the blackwork and bookmark right after they came out (it helped that the bookmark was a pretty quick stitch this month), but as usual, I only stitched all of the temperature stitch a couple days into the new month! But now I got everything together and I'm kind of excited to share :D

First up was the Blackwork SAL. I added another square and cross this month - the two shapes at the bottom left. Not much left to go now, and I'm making plans on how to finish-finish this. I just need to find a couple of pretty matching fabrics.


Next up was the bookmark. A different shape this month, one that fits to the corner of a page. Magical didn't have the finishing instructions up when I stitched this, so I got creative myself (and changed the colour from burnt orange to green so I had a matching felt for the backing), and I quite like it!

And then last but not least, there is the temperature SAL. I did get to use a new colour, a real bright red - quite a bit of it, actually! It was fun to stitch, but living through those days wasn't all that fun, so I really hope I won't have to use any more of it. For now we're back in the greens, but I think this week will bring us back to the yellow-orange range, so we'll see how that goes.

Really great SALs. The bookmark is unique, neat idea. You know how I like temperature projects and blackwork! Well done!

Fantastic work keeping up with the SALs. The blackwork is so pretty. I like the way she is mixing up the style of the bookmarks each month.
Bet you didn't think you'd be using all those hot colours so much!

Congratulations for keeping up with these SALs. The red certainly enhances the temperature SAL, even if the weather itself wasn't pleasant to live through. :)
