Ready for the Next Steps ~


All of the letters have been stitched and the words are spelled out on my design wall ~ now it is time to create the top itself. Still playing with multiple border ideas...

The saying above is paraphrased from a scene in The Wizard of Oz ~ the Wicked Witch calls upon her army of flying monkeys to track down Dorothy & her companions, skyjacking them back to the castle... click here for more info on those monkeys. In my case, the motivation came from a bad day at work...

Cool angle-y letters...like the "G" and the "Y" in Flying. I like this uniqueness in your letters. Very interesting. Where does this saying come from??? Did you explain in your earlier post about deciding to use this? Hmmmmm....now I'm going to have to go re-read it. It's looking great!

Your letters look great and I love the sentiment :)!

Thanks for the explanation of the quote. It sounded somewhat familiar before, but now it makes complete sense, and I -totally- understand the sentiment behind it. In fact, I will probably steal it to use on my own stressful occasions.

I particularly like your crazy G and your Y's, and your mobius-looking O's. I can't wait to see this.
