And They Sinned is finished!! Yippee! Hip Hip Hooray!! Celebration! This was finished on Sunday night but I have been basking in glory and not wanting to do any work or blogging. Just some stats before the pictures. You gotta take the bad with the good. Hee hee. Total time to stitch it was nine months, three days or 390 hours. Not bad as I had read somewhere it took someone 500 hours to stitch. I kept track of my time by tally marks in one of those little mole skin books. You sure can tell when I got my Ott Lite as my time went from 10-15 hours a week to 15-22 hours a week. What a difference a nice light can make. The bottom green section took me more than two months to stitch. It is 9 1/2 inches wide by just under 48 inches long, stitched on 35 ct linen with one strand of Gentle Arts Sampler Threads. Okay, enough of the blah blah blah and on to the good stuff.

This will be the last post with progress pictures of And They Sinned. The next post will show a completed piece. Did I just write that? A finished piece? Yes, I am patting myself on the back. I have never stitched anything this large and certainly have never started a piece and finished it without starting another project, and then another, and then another! Ha ha. Actually I did start two other pieces but only worked on each one for a day, just to stroke some silk.
