Celebrate the Hues of OZ!!

Linda at Olde Baggs 'n Stuft Shirts is hosting another Celebrate Oz party and you are invited!! I decided to play along this year when a piece I was working on insisted on turning into A Horse of a Different Color.
 
I have never played before so I don't know what I'm supposed to do other than create something with this Hues of Oz theme in mind.
I was working on another of my Dooleybobbers, using this great red wool felt and some wonderful scraps of colorful horse print fabrics.
As I added more horse fabrics, I thought, "Now that's a horse of a different color!"

And indeed it is.  I had fun making this piece.  It is 11"X10", fairly small as are most of my Dooleybobbers.

I hope you will check out Linda's blog and follow the links she will provide to the other participants of this Oz celebration.  I had fun, thanks for letting me play along!

Be well.

Oh Ms. Jan....you've made my Oz loving heart go pit a pat. This is exactly the theme. This is all the Hues of Oz with a side order of wonderfulness in the Horse of different color. You nailed it babe. I was excited when you said you were going to play this year. Now I am just over the rainbow and so I gotta say it.....Hues to you darling girl, Oma Linda

Magaly Guerrero said...

Horses over the rainbow! I have the feeling that soon, dear Oma will bring them as a theme.... knowing her, the horses will probably be donkeys.

Love your colors!

For your first time, you done did great. The Horse of a Different Color was a fine choice for the Hues of Oz. By the way, I love the word "Dooleybobber".
