The Story Of Rose

This is the Zombie I sent to my Partner It is "Rose" She was the Choir Conductor in Wonderland's  garden.  It
was a story that I felt would not get told because of the other characters were more in the lime light.

This Is The Story Of Rose from Alice In Wonderland’s Garden

Rose was the director of the Garden Chorus.
Rose led them in some beautiful melodies
 All of the other flowers loved her so.
Then the long dreaded Zombie Apocalypse found its way to Wonderland.
The rotting, fumbling Zombies massacred the Garden.  They stomped on all of the beautiful flowers.  Rose tried to hide from all of the mayhem but it didn’t matter where she hid. The Zombies sloughed the disease on to the garden.
Rose’s once beautiful red petals began to drain of all their crimson color.
Droplets of her color fell on her leaves like the dripping of blood, slowly leaving the dead.
The petals once so brilliantly colored turned to a pasty sickening pink.
Spiders put webs in her once ruby petals.
Rose looked at the garden of all her beloved friends. Lifelessly they lay in the disgusting
Swaller that was once as the garden of Wonderland

All of Roses friends, broken brown, green and twisted.
Was she all that was left of the most beautiful ground covering in Wonderland?
“No, No it can’t be true”, she silently wailed.  It was true!
Alice, the White Rabbit, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, everyone, anyone in Wonderland
TURNED, succumbed to the dreadful undead.
                                    That day, the music died.

I love this time of year Zombies here Zombies there Zombies, Zombies every where.
Oh Wonderland. What happened?  Yarnigras Swapper Spot.
My partner this year is Little Messy Missy. I have swapped with her before. She is also very talented.
The most fun is we are in the same Zip Code. Missy left my Zombie on the front porch. When my daughter went to work she brought it in and put it on the dinning room table. Then she called me and told me there was a visitor at the table.  So I crept out and there she was The best little Zombie ever with the best Coffin I ever got.  So Far...........
She made Alice and all the little elements she put together. FABULOUS

Here is the Zombie I sent my partner Its on the way............
Next Up Voo Doo Pin Cushions  Whahooo!

Next I have the F R I E N D S  Swap that was put together by Khristina McCarthy from sewprimskhris.blogspot .com  This was a fun swap also. The swap was to make a new friend and I did with Donna C in California.  Hi Donna!. Here is what she sent me.

All my sisters, daughter,nieces and the craftiest of them all daughter inlaw. We are making Zombies we each found a Barbie Head at the Thrift Store. Tianna was a bonus.  I think Barbie and the hands are already SCARY and ICKY.
