This! Is! Madness!

Well, yes. It is March.

Heather suggested working on a different project each day or creating one's own definition of "madness". I went with the second and defined "madness" as working on a HAED. It's only entirely appropriate therefore, that I don't get anywhere near my HAEDs. *snort*

Instead I drove myself crazy with a travelling pattern. Organized by Jennifer, it consists of Peggy Lee's ABCD by La-D-Da. It's been stitched by a bunch of people (Jennifer has links if you're curious) in silks and overdyed.

I was going to share the epic tale of how this design has been driving me crazy, but have decided to spare everyone XD. Maybe next time.

Urgh, I just posted a comment and there was a blasted error!

Anywho, it's looking great Blu!! I've heard that the pattern alphabet is tricky if you are a stitch or two off. Perhaps this has been your issue?!

Hang in there girl! It will be worth it in the end. It is so pretty all stitched.

LOVE the colors in this design so far.

LOL at the title...very nice. =)

Is the linky not working for you, or have you not tried yet?
