Nineteenth Finish For 2011

Whew! I'm almost there ;o) This was a big finish, not only for me but for Nia too since this was our SAL. Here is Christmas Rules by Lizzie Kate in all its finery -

I'm quite happy with the results. It was stitched on 32 count Light Mocha linen with the suggested threads.

Now that I've started Halloween Rules though, I'm finding the threads have much more variegation so I think I'm even happier with this new SAL. All in all though, when the time comes to finish Christmas Rules, I'll be proud to display it on my wall :o)

Uhuuuu!!! We did it :D And we did it together :)
Have you decided any color for the frame? In my mind, I always had the idea of a red frame but Rui says green would look pretty.. I will have to see the frames on the store and pick my fave on the moment! heheheh
