We're Off to See the Wizard
We're Off to See the Wizard the wonderful Wizard of Oz to hopefully get the Tin Man a heart, the Lion courage, and the Scarecrow a brain! But there's the poppy fields to beware of as you could get very sleepy! The Wicked Witch but we know she's afraid of water. The flying monkeys . . . just totally freaky looking!!!! You're probably still dizzy from the spinning whirling twirling house and watching all those things passing by like a nightmare expecially that Miss Gulch on her bicycle! Poor Toto hiding in the basket, but can you blame him? Don't pay any attention to the man behind the curtain as he knows not what he speaks! And then there are the delightful munchkins that sing 3 octives highly than humanly possible. I almost forgot the good witch Glinda - how could I forget her --- she was just too sugary sweet to my standards but as a Good Witch goes, she was the best, but why didn't she just tell Dorothy she had the power to return all along and wait until the end - geesh!And then only bad witches are ugly --- come on now! Its the Merry Old Land of Oz! I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore Toto. . . .
We're paying homage to the Wizard of Oz today with our blog hop! So, grab your beverage of choice and those ruby red slippers of yours, click them twice and repeat after me - "there's no place like home, there's no place like home"!

For my project, I would love to share with you a quilt that I had made for a quilt challenge. You were given a piece of fabric and asked to design a quilt around that that portrayed a song from a musical. Thus, was the birth of “We’re Off to See the Wizard” with the witch, my self-portrait, gazing in her crystal ball with Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion following the Yellow Brick Road.
I do have one other item for show’n tell time --- Tami had made me this wonderful journal and I just have to show it off. Tami is part of the hop, make sure you give extra bloggie love not only for her project but for my wonderful gift!!!!
As every good story, it has a beginning and a happily ever after - Dorothy went home and all was well with the world and Dorothy told Auntie Em - there's no place like home!!!!!! AWWWW how sweet! Hope you enjoyed my project and I must send you along your way to Kari and a place somewhere beyond the rainbow -
God Bless and Thank you for stopping by
Hugs, Love, and Pixie Dust
P.S. no flying monkeys were harmed during the making of this hop!
