Time to join Oma Linda as she celebrates 75 years of "The Wizard of Oz".
I have really enjoyed making my celebration piece this year, so may I present
Elphaba...aka The Wicked Witch of the West, a very green Goddess lol
I think I may have been a bard in a past life lol, as I can not pass up the opportunity to add a little ditty to go with this give away...so in memory of the Wickedest Witch of them all I give you....
Forget me? NOT!
My sister's treasures, red and sweet
Sit now upon YOUR stinky feet!
I cackled gladly as you'd fail,
With "Bag of Straw", "Fur Rug" and "Pail".
My Minions screeching as you fled
With nightmares swirling in your head.
I hated you with passions deep.
Stood over you while you did sleep.
You screamed fake sorrow at my cries,
As I melted right before your eyes.
Forget me not my "Pretty" one....
I may be dead.....but never gone!
I followed the basic body pattern in Fiona McDonald's "Knitted Fairies" book and winged it :D
(I just LOVE creators who encourage imagination in others!)
and tried to recreate her original costume from THE film :D
She is 15 inches in length (not including hat)
And I am giving her away!!!!
To be in with a chance to win this one of a kind, hand knitted creation (lol...sounds soooo professional)
all you need to do is leave "I'll get you my pretty!" in the comments section.
(I should also say she would not be suitable for very small children as she has a dowel spine, felt features and stringy bits)
Hope you will have time to pop over and cheer Oma on ...and maybe even join in with your favourite colour from the Land of Oz...mine is Green...did you guess lol
And being an impatient mare...I will draw a name and announce the winner on the evening of Monday 24th.
