Christmas Rules SAL Block Eleven

I can't believe it, I haven't written a post since November! I have shamefully neglected my Blog :o( I do have some good excuses though... I'm making my way towards catching up on my Blog reading (30 posts left) and my email is 'almost' up to date ;o)

This block was completed last month, I just never got up enough energy to iron and take pictures of it. LOL! So here we have block eleven -

And here's what it looks like to date -

Right now I'm stitching the LAST block! Wow! Hard to believe that Nia and I are almost done :o( This was such a fun SAL to stitch together :o)

Since December 1, I have been decorating the house for Christmas. I now have my ornament tree up and I just love it -

I hope that we're going to pick out our tree this weekend. I'm SO behind with everything. My Christmas cards are sitting here expecting to be addressed and presents waiting to be bought and wrapped. Ugh! Where has the time gone???? DH and I have another trip to the 'big city' on Tuesday for another check up so there's a day gone. I just hope I don't have any more distractions so I can get all this stuff done.

Btw, I promise to post a picture of 'the belly' soon ;o)

That's a cute idea! I never thought about getting a mini-tree just for stitched ornaments.

That SAL looks wonderful and so does your ornament tree. Sounds like things are progressing nicely in multiple ways!

oh! your header looks so cute =) and the baby ruler!!! with a pumpkin baby! hahahahha really really good :D

I'm so (but sooooo) behind on my emails =/ I'll get there someday :p heheheh

Uhhuuuu! already stitching the last one? I have to run to catch you :p but I won't be able to start before Monday probably.. I need to stitch a couple of ornaments this weekend.. I will start soon so I won't be to far from you, it would be nice to finish at the same time :)
This one is almost complete.. but we will repeat the fun!!! uhuuu :D

You have so many cross stitched ornaments! :D I don't have any made by me but I have a few from friends, cross stitch and felt ornaments too, all over the place heheheh

I'm done with my cards! With that I'm good.. but it took me all the month of november! hahahah I'm glad to have that task done :)

I hope you'll find the time to make everything and also to sit down and relax with your hubby :)
Have a great weekend!!!
hugs&smiles

Your Christmas Rules is looking great!! Love your ornament tree. How are you feeling? Don't worry if you don't get everything done. You have a wonderful excuse. You have to take care of you and the baby first. Relaxing and stitching sounds like the best thing. But if you have to buy things, you could always make your trip to the "big city" a shopping trip too. Oops, have to tell you that I just got distracted. Was typing this up and for some reason I scrolled back up and found myself looking at your ornament tree. I really love it!! Take care!!

Life just gets busy but I always have my stitchy friends in my heart and mind. I am looking forward to a belly picture!!

Lynn said...

Christmas Rules looks fabulous! It won't be long now for a happy dance.
I just purchased a new ornament tree yesterday. The one I have now doesn't hold all that many.
The new one came with the tree skirt and is the same as yours. Your tree looks awesome! I don't have all that many ornaments to fill mine up yet.

Catherine said...

Both your LK and your tree are fabulous!
