It's time for the August report for the Totally Useless SAL. Here it is, resting comfortably on Chaplain's Garden. The jar is pretty full this time: lots of DMC labels, orts. And my fob broke, so there are some pretty green beads and silver charms. I'd had it so long that I decided to put it to rest and not re-bead it.
Here's the ever-growing bowl of  balls.
And the Marquoir. This is truly a great piece to stitch. It's HUGE. But it moves quickly because there is no backstitching or half stitches. I'm still playing with the color scheme a little. I am using liturgical colors. Even did some research, as I mentioned before. Now I just need to figure out where to use some black and white..
