And They Sinned

I was pleased with my progress yesterday on ATS although I must admit that I am getting easily distracted with blogging in between stitching. By blogging at the same time as stitching it  is like sitting down with you all and chatting as we stitch. It is such fun.

I tried to avoid stripes from the overdyed threads in the pond area. I haven't made up my mind yet if I like the effect I have created.

There is a bad sea mist at the moment so I am putting off walking for a few hours. There is a chicken roasting in the AGA and Ray has just brought me a cup of coffee so I am going to have a read of the Sunday papers on my ipad (one of the few downsides of living out of the village is no paper deliveries).

Do you remember my post about the "12 Acts of Kindness" that I want to try and do as often as possible ?  Ray told me that the cup of coffee was his twelfth act of kindness for me today but he can't remember the other eleven. Oh I do love my husband so much, he is my soulmate and can still make me laugh after all these years together.
