One Flower Wednesday and ONWARD!

Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul.  -Democritus


Finally..............my body and internal clock are "back to normal" after my 10 day vacation at the end of last month.........and so, saying........I present to you my Wednesday masterpiece........the Wicked Witch of the West in flight..................


I was really pleased with how this flower turned out.........when I got the fabric I wasn't sure if I would just have the witch's head on each petal or maybe just the head in the middle and a hat for each petal but in the end I decided to make something that would be more of an "action" flower that would be a dynamic part of the scene.  I envision this flower going right about the middle of the wall hanging........sort of somewhere between the Kansas side and the Oz side of the scene......................Please hop on over to Karen's OFW page where there are beautiful gardens of flowers for you to ooh and ahh over........Click HERE.....see you there!

I have made myself a list today:


1.    Make my flower for One Flower Wednesday (check)
2.    Make 2 mug rugs for my swap (I already have fabric ready)
3.    Make my block for the Block Swap Adventure (got the pattern)
3.    Start quilting the Dresden State Bird quilt which will be Christmas present for my son, Patrick (already sandwiched)

So anyway I guess I will get to it!  TaTaForNow

Love your flying witch, fantastic fussy cutting! Your hexies are great at story-telling. Are you making a hexie for "I'm melting"? When I was many, many years younger I thought the movie was a bit scary...I loved it when the witch got wet.
