The Queen of Rock

After countless starts and stops, Miss Wanda Jackson is finally finished and is awaiting her debut at the Oklahoma State Fair, along with dozens of other embroidered Okies.

Wanda Jackson, The Queen of Rock

Since "Funnel of Love" is just about my favorite Wanda Jackson song, and since Oklahoma is known for its funnel clouds, I thought a giant embroidered cyclone was appropriate.

Funnel of Love

My taller half even tried his hand at embroidery for the first time to render the majesty of Ryan, Oklahoma native Chuck Norris' kicking power in floss and felt.

Remember: There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.

LOVE the Wanda Jackson! I met her last year and she's a hoot. My graduate thesis is actually going to be on women in rockabilly music and I wrote a post on Wanda, just in case anyone wants more info on her- http://tartdeco.blogspot.com/2009/09/wanda-jackson.html
