The wizard of Oz

I finished page 5 of The wizard of Oz and I still like this piece of work. The colours are amazing, the photo doesn't really do justice to this stitching.I started the yellow brick road, so that's a big difference in colour. And please don't think this is boring stitching, because yellow has about twenty variations in colour!

At the moment I'm busy with Impossible Love. That's really diffent stitching and I like the variation. When I've finished page 3 of the piece I will show a photo again.

Stitching becomes more and more complicated. It's difficult to sit in a way that doesn't hurt. My belly is becoming really big, the pregnancy is now almost 38 weeks far, so I'm really curious to when the baby decides to come! And I'm tired of course, but that's a good excuse to do nothing else but stitching!

The Wizard looks wonderful, you have a whole "scene" already! Is it for the baby's room? I saw the pic of Leap Froggie hanging in the baby's room and it looks perfect. Glad you chose the blue/green frame. I don't know id Pooh and Paddington are for your baby, but if so he/she already has a room full of treasures! Can't wait for its arrival. Hang in there!

Wow 38 weeks!! I think you'll see your baby very very soon!
Your work is completely amazing! Will you decorate your baby's room with it?

Hi! Thanks for all the comments, it's really nice to hear something back!
This piece isn't meant for the baby room, because it will take me too long to finish it. Baby won't be a baby then, I guess! But Leap froggie is indeed hanging in the baby room and the little piece with the ABC of Winnie the Pooh as well. For my son (Quintijn, just turned 2 years old) I stitched Noah's Sub, which is quite big as well. And after that I fortunately discovered HAED!

I'm really curious to my baby and of course I will let you know when it is born!

Bye, Sjoukje
