I've made a couple of blocks (antique hand method) and have really enjoyed doing all the embroidery and embellishments; the project is on hold at the moment because I'm doing a silk ribbon embroidery course in mid-march and what to incorporate that as well.

The joy of crazy for me is that it is SO unstructured. I just sat with a box of scraps (all kinds of fabric, not just cottons - DH lost a silk tie :D ) and added them randomly; but it's the embellishment that's the real fun part; I bought one of those cases intended for screws and nails to store all my bits and bobs!

Yeah, I think they're a bit OTT but I never could learn when to stop...
