One Flower Wednesday.....ON TIME! Take a peek at the Emerald City Palace.......

"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does."  - William James

Oh My Gosh..........making this flower was Sooooooo scary!  I had been thinking about this for awhile..........Irene bought me a Wizard of Oz Panel awhile back and I have been cutting pieces out of it for my other Oz flowers but I had just about convinced myself that I was just going to cut out the whole Emerald City Palace and applique it because I was afraid I couldn't fussy cut it without running out of all the print I needed...........there were 3 prints of the Palace on the run and it was so scary trying to decide where to make the cuts and I used every bit of the three prints.......
but I am so happy to report that, "Ta-da" ......I didn't mess up and I just LOVE the way this flower turned out............
Here it is on an emerald batik background and the next photo is on the yellow brick road fabric.....


This will go near the top right side of the hanging after the poppy fields and talking tree forest...............and probably near one end of the rainbow................I have to confess that I couldn't stop thinking about it and I actually got this finished on Friday.......I was so happy to think "I already have my flower done for next week!" And not only that, but now that I won't be fretting about what I'm going to make maybe I can actually finish one of my UFO's..........(well it is a lofty goal but I'll give it a try)........
But back to the hexagon flowers..........please don't forget to check out the other flowers growing at Karen's garden on her One Flower Wednesday Page............I'm going there now.......TTFN.............

I think all of the words that mean "you did a super stupendous wonderful job with amazing incredible results" have already been used. But I still wanted to leave you a comment and tell you how much I admire your flower... Heehee!
