Introducing my first finish of 2009 - 'The Wicked Witch of the West'
Most of you will remember her from 'The Wizard of Oz' and many of you from Gregory Maguire's 'Wicked'. Wherever you know her from I'm sure you will remember having a soft spot for Elphaba.
When I visted Juls' home for the first time I saw this beauty gracing one of the walls and it was love at first site. I stitched Elphaba 2/2 on 28 ct overydyed (Carnival I believe) lugana. Thank you for the introduction Juls - she was such a fun project and I am so pleased with the result.
WWW was the last of my Halloween WIPs and I wanted to get her finished early in the year as Brenda, Juls, Martha and I are planning a new Halloween SAL starting 04/01/09.
Meet 'Scraps' I already have the suggested fabric - 30 ct Twisted Peppermint Pink overdyed linen and will be tossing my floss soon to make sure I have all the colors needed. This is going to be another fun project and I can hardly wait to start.
In the meantime I hope to finish a few more WIPs started in 2008 and perhaps even start something new. Since I have a few kits which will be stitched on Aida I thought one of these might be a great project for the final dark winter days. Will let you know what I decide.
One last thing before I make some lunch and get back to my bookkeeping - if you are an avid reader and haven't read Elizabeth Kostova's 'The Historian' do so. I'm enjoying it thoroughly.
