Wizard of Oz Embroidery

My original embroidered blocks for The Wizard of Oz are done. I am considering how to set them together.

I love the Scarecrow. Next to him is Dorothy and Toto.

I have a happy Lion. The Tin Man is a bit scary looking I think.

My Glenda is an 'Earth Mother' figure, nurturing and life giving so the Wicked Witch had to be thin and unfeminine. Sorry, fans of "Wicked!"


  1. Love these, and I'm so impressed that these are your own designs. It will be a one-of-a-kind, heirloom quilt.

    Are you using floss? If so, what color and how many strands? What stitch(es) are you using?

  2. I am using Precensia floss, three strands, stem stitch. I should design the Wizard too... but as I am not trained in art it took me hours and hours to each of these where I wanted them!
