Christmas Rules SAL Block Nine

As promised, here is block nine of my Christmas Rules SAL -

Photobucket

And here is the project to date -

I can't believe that we only have three more blocks left! Even though I've been stitching on this since the first of the year, it doesn't seem like it's been that long. I've been enjoying every bit of it :o) Nia and I have decided that come the first of 2012, we're going to stitch Halloween Rules as our new SAL. I can't wait!

Remember to read the important note on my September 9 post! Again, thank you for all your comments. They've been a joy to read :o)

Great Stitching but I have to tell you.....instead of seeing Share your toys....I read it to be shake your toys. I guess the little kid in me was thinking of Christmas morning. Hahahaha I look forward to seeing your progress. It will soon be a finish!!

I really love this piece. The colors are very 'cheery'.

Ranae said...

Looking good! I love the colors

Christine said...

This is really pretty!! I think it might have to go on my wishlist (I stitched the 2008 Double Flips and loved how it came out).

Lisa said...

Looking lovely, xmas is sooooo my thing :)

paula said...

How long is your Christmas SAL going to be? It has been so much fun watching it grow.

Great progress on your SAL. I admire you for sticking with it!

Jane said...

Love it, love it, love it and the rules are so real as well ~ I'm all for Rule 7, keep the schedule light and will point this out to DH which will then mean enforcing Rule 6 to him!!!
Have a good weekend Pumpkin xxx

CalamityJr said...

I really like the piece, and you're doing a great job! I'm not sure, though, whether you'll be happy to have it finished or sad that it's come to an end...

I think that may be my favorite block yet, Cathey--so cute. And how nice that you and Nia will be doing a new SAL in 2012--you're a good team :)

Annie said...

Looks great. I guess it really helps to keep you motivated when you do this kind of thing as a SAL.

Lisa V said...

It's coming along nicely. Such lovely colours.

Hillery said...

You'll be done in no time. Great job. Do you iron your stitching every time you take a pic? Your work is always immaculate.

Stitchinowl said...

You are just zipping along with your SAL. It's such a light and cheerful piece. I love the cute reindeer on top of the house - he looks like he's flying over the house!

valerie said...

Woohoo! Looking great! I'm almost caught up to you. Maybe by the end of the weekend. lol

Sally said...

I absolutely love this piece! It's so bright and cheerful:)

Patty C. said...

This is a great design - So many bloggers have stitched this one - I need to think about doing it myself -

I'll be watching your progress ;)

trillium said...

This is a great piece for Christmas house decorating. The fabric looks gray--what color is it?

Daffycat said...

This is just darling. I really like the reindeer block.

I've not kept track...are you doing one block each month or just going along as it gets there? I'm much better going on a kept schedule but my "extra" stitching seems to suffer!

Myra said...

Like everyone else, I just love this piece. I am really wanting to stitch Halloween Rules too but I want to do them as individual ornaments.

Linda said...

Hi Pumpkin, Love the rules. Everytime I see yours it makes me want to work on mine. I only have part of the top and first rule worked on.

Melanie said...

Great stitches!!

Veronica said...

Hmm... I missed seeing this post on my Google Reader :( Hope you don't mind me commenting on it so late.

Anyway, Christmas Rules looks great! It's coming along beautifully. Three more blocks... you should be able to finish it in time for Christmas :)

Growing nicely, the months of the year just fly be when you stitch a part a month, it makes you realise how fast life passes you by
