One Flower Wednesday--Ding Dong the Wicked Witch is Dead!

You've got to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you've got, and remember what you had. Always forgive, but never forget. Learn from mistakes, but never regret.   --Unknown

Ok here it is.............last week I gave you a sneak peek of the "rest of the flower"  (sounds like a Paul Harvey intro....lol)..........so anyway, here it is...............my version of Dorothy's house.....after the tornado.....

  
and are you ready to see it together with the partial flower from last week????     Me too..........lets look!


 "Ding-Dong, the witch is dead.... The wicked witch is dead..." 
LOL!!! I love the way this turned out!

I don't have a clue where I am going from here.........I guess wherever the fabric I have leads me..................this set of flowers will go towards the bottom of the wall hanging.....probably just to the left of center.........I'm thinking just to the right will be the lollipop flower I made awhile back....and then I have to work in the talking tree forest and the poppy fields after that........

Please remember to check out the rest of the beautiful flowers growing at Karen's garden at her One Flower Wednesday page.....

And guess what?  Quilting Gallery is again having one of their wonderful Blog Hops starting on Saturday Aug. 25th!  I will, (again) be participating so "hop" on back here to see what I have to give away.......I am thinking I may just include the goodies that Jodie from Ft. Worth Fabric Studio gave me so that she can get more bloggers hearing about her fabulous shop....and maybe I'll add some more surprises........
Just be looking for this banner.....(you can see it on the right hand side of my blog).....there will be lots of other bloggers participating too..... and let the fun begin!
 
Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways 
BTW.....I have decided that a quilter/crafter can never have too many UFO's.....because who is to know when that UFO will become a WIP and finally a FINISH!  So with that profound statement I am headed over to the Fat Quarter Shop to spend my gift certificate on some beautiful flannel FQ bundles.....I have always wanted to make a flannel quilt and I have always wanted to make a rag quilt and I just found a pattern for a flannel rag quilt!   So here I go.......TaTa for now...........
