Some three years ago I joined a stitch-a-long for a "A Mon Ami Pierre" pattern. I had a lot of obsticles to overcome along the way, I messed up calculating the fabric size, lost my hand dyed floss once, ran out of it twice, considered giving up several times. Three years and perhaps six or seven skeins of WDW later I am happy dancing around the Christmas tree. Yeah. It was definitely worth it.
