One Flower Wednesday, Tornados, Witches, and Headed Home....Oh My!

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.      ― Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Before I left to go on vacation I worked on a couple of flowers for the Kansas side of the Oz hanging............these came from the same fabric as Miss Gulch on the bicycle and Professor Marvel that I showed you before..............I had a FQ of the fabric but then I found and bought a whole half yard which allowed me to make several more flowers out of that sepia tone fabric which is perfect for the Kansas side .............

Well, yes I made two but I'm only going to show you ONE since this is ONE flower Wednesday.....hahaha........there is a method to my madness;  I am actually driving home on Wednesday and then back to work on Thursday and Friday, Monday and Tuesday so I wanted to be sure I had something to show you next week..........

So here is Dorothy after she woke up inside her house as it was being taken away by the tornado...........


       see the Wicked Witch flying by the window??? Me thinks her flight will be short-lived when Dorothy's house lands in Oz.................

So today Nana and her best cooking buddy made some jello and banana treats...........the hardest thing is waiting for them to be ready!
and our snow globes are having a little bit of problem with the glue setting so we are waiting on that too before we add the water and glitter to them.....................
so I'm going to get the very last bit of Nana time before it is time to go to bed and get some rest for that long ride home...........so I will talk to you next time and just say Ta-Ta for now...............

I know you had a wonderful time with your family. What fun it is to create things with your grandchildren. I know they know their Nana is the "best" and love the time you spend with them. Great Oz flower too. Be careful traveling.

LOVE that flower!!! It looks just great with the witch flying past.

I like the idea of the snowglobes with the children. They will enjoy those.

Have a safe drive back and a great Thanksgiving.

I love the sepia colors in that fabric. It looks like it was clipped right out of the movie! My mom tells a story about the first time this movie was on TV when she was a girl. She only had a black and white television but someone at school had a color one, and that other girl spent the next week talking about how the movie "changed to color" once Dorothy landed in Oz. Whenever I watch the movie, I imagine how different it would be without any color at all. This fabric makes me smile :-)
