We're Off to See the Wizard - Revisited
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 especially 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 octaves 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! It’s 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 Blog Candy we have a 7 - piece paper assortment of 12 x 12 pieces of paper by Paper House Productions
We have a great line-up for you today and you should have arrived from <insert previous blog>. If not, or you just dropped in to visit today, we don't want you to miss a single story of the travels of our "characters" from start to finish and would love for you to begin at the beginning of our hop -
For my project today, I have a quilt top that I has yet to be quilted. This quilt is mammoth and is 108 x 110-inches!! My one supervisor had loved the Wizard of Oz and as soon as this is quilted, this quilt is for her!!!!
Patches just had to get in on one of the pictures!!!
And, since I'm such a slacker --- here is a card that I had made for her birthday and wanted to share with you ... just be kind as this is one of my first projects!!!!
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 Jamie and a place beyond the rainbow -
Our complete line-up in case you get lost along the way due to those darn flying monkeys:
