First update on And They Sinned

I've started this piece on March 21st (the start of Spring and also the birthday of my deceased grandfather). Since then I've been happily stitching on this piece which is executed on a 35-count with one thread ... something which I didn't do before but which will certainly be repeated! It really is a pleasure to stitch this way!

I have all the colours except for two which are on backorder. And guess what ... I need them for the upper part = the three crowns and the big angel that is standing between two pillars. Hence the empty spot on the top part of the sampler.
It's only now that I get to realise how big this piece is going to be! Just to give you an idea ...I've spent almost an entire week (only stitching a couple of hours during the evening) on the big grey cloud - of which I first thought it should be blue :-).

Still enjoying it highly so you'll see other updates soon!
