We Three Kings

This is a quick post to ask if any one out there has stitched We Three Kings by Glendon Place. I have the pattern, material, DMC floss and beads all kitted up. Now the question is did you stitch all the DMC first then go back and stitch the Kreinik or would it be OK to use the Kreinik as you are stitching the DMC colors. I have never done a project this large with so much Kreinik thread and beads and I am just looking for some advice before I get started on it.

Sorry I don't have any updates to show, I figured I have only stitched a little over a thousand stitches the whole month of Dec so far. Not so good when I usually do about 300-400 every day normally

I have over 300 blogs to read and get caught up on, so I may be at the computer for a while today.

Hope every one had a great Christmas!
Happy Stitching

Final TUSAL for 2012

When I did my last post I forgot about my TUSAL update
so as I was reading and catching up on my blog reading
and see eveeryone elses TUSAL I figured I better get my picture taken and posted.

Most of the colors in my dish are from working on Abigails birth sampler.
The christmas bulb with the 2012 written on it has all of my orts form this year in it
so we start saving again. Here is a picture of all 4 bulbs that I have done.
We went to a craft show last week and the girls had to have these,
Kyla, Kacee, Kynzie modeling there tutu's and
 matching head bands
This picture was also taken at the craft show we attended.
This is me and my bff, we have been friends
since we were in the 3rd grade.
Well it's about time for me to get ready  to go to work at the post office for the afternoon, so until next time

No Stitching :(

Good morning fellow bloggers!
It has been 15 days since I posted last :)
I have no pictures of my stitching because,
 well the little bit that I have stitched is not enough to
show. I have been cleaning and decorating for christmas.
The Stockings are hung with care.
The tree is up and decorated
My Santa's are on display.
My snowman's are out  
And my small cross stitched ornaments got a new little tree this year.
We had a day of baking with DD1, DD2 & GD
 I think Sharlee ate more marshmallows then anything else. 
Here is what we made:
Peanut butter blossoms
chocolate chip coukie dough truffels
peanut clusters
oreo truffles
christmas white trash
santa hat pretzels
peanut butter pretzel bars
chocolate chip holiday tea cakes
creamy chocolate fudge
turtle cookies
peanut butter ritz crackers dipped in chocolate
It was a busy day and I was tired by the end of the day.
And the final thing that has kept me away from the computer is I got a part time job working at the local small town post office. So this past week I have been in training from 8-4:30 every day. I know poor me. Well after I get done with some more traning  my work hours will only be 4 hours a day. Perfect for me.
Well my daughter is on her way out here to pick me up too go shopping so I better get dressed  so I am ready shen she gets here.
I am going to leave you with one last picture that I took and I hope you enjoy!
A friend of mine said it looks like we could be Santa and Mrs Claus
Happy Stitching
