One Flower Wednesday....."Magic Poppies will make her sleeeeeeep........"


Hope is always available to us. When we feel defeated, we need only take a deep breath and say, "Yes," and hope will reappear.— Monroe Forester




I got the Oz poppy fabric I had ordered and was barely able to make the flower with Dorothy asleep in the Poppy Field.............each flower that I make as a scene actually needs three of the printed scenes in order to make one flower but the half yard I ordered was cut so that there were only 2 Dorothy asleep scenes in it so I had to sort of finagle another piece in there using the tin man's hat to make the rest of Dorothy's sleeve............can you tell???


I don't have any poppies (magic or otherwise...lol) but I thought she looked pretty good sleeping in my Desert primroses.......

I will probably try to sew this flower together with the poppy-hexie flowers I had made earlier............



I also got some more of the talking tree fabric I had ordered so I can hopefully begin finishing out the talking tree scene, as well...............
so that is it for this Wednesday on my blog but Karen has more lovelies for you to see on her One Flower Wednesday Page.........please click on the link to go there too!  So I will talk to you soon..........ta-ta for now.............

Seriously?!? You are amazing. You know how much I had to zoom in and stare at that before I realized what you were even talking about with the Tin Man's hat? It looks amazing -- even staring at it, I can barely tell it's not the "right" fabric.

When you are done with this project, I would like a photo of the whole thing, which I will blow up poster size and hang on my wall, so I can admire it every day :-).

Love it, love it. I have poppies in my backyard you could have photographed, haha. I like how your Oz is coming together. You have such good ideas and I don't think Dorothy's sleeve looks at all like a hat. Good job!

Wow!

How many have you got now? I see them pop up on my blog list every now and then and think OMG you must have hundreds by now.

=)
