This was my first project. This is what got me interested in cross stitch in the first place.  I found the chart on a Facebook group that was selling Oz items, and I had a spot in my bedroom that was absolutely perfect for it.

I started out and got all kinds of screwed up, so I ended up having to redo it from the beginning…and still made mistakes.  Thankfully you can’t tell and I honestly can’t really either.

The chart is labelled No. 10, and it lists “Sleeping Beauty’s Castle,” “Rapunzel’s Tower/Once Upon a Time,” “The Shoe,” and “The Gingerbread House.”  My searching online did turn up a No. 12, “The Snow Queen’s Castle.”  I don’t know how many were in this series, but I’d like to find them.  I may never do all of them in the series, but it would be neat to have.
