Being the Oz-aholic I am, this was my next stitch. She was a pretty quick one to stitch up, and I only made two minor alterations.
The first thing I did was put an outline to her sleeve. The other change I made was swapping out the silver for ruby red for her shoes.
I also opted to not stitch the Yellow Brick Road under her, however, I may go back and do that now. We’ll see.
She’s currently sitting in my bathroom in a frame in a quasi-finished state. Mom found some poppy-themed Washi tape and since my bathroom is Oz themed (and has poppies all over the walls) it will look fantastic.
Project 3 involved both of the Witches of Oz. I do have plans to do the entire series of 14 as ornaments, but that will be coming with time.
