April A to Z Challenge - Cross Stitch "J" x 2

"J" is a weird mix, on the Once front, it is one of my favorite characters, but on the V Mars front, it's one of my least. Let's ramble on with another letter, shall we?

Project #1: Once Upon A Time
"J" is for the Mad Hatter, aka Jefferson.  There was definitely NOT enough Jefferson on Once!  Sebastian Stain played the Mad Hatter like no one else has in a Wonderland adaptation before and it is just a shame he didn't have more screen time.  The Mad Hatter became mad when he was trapped in Wonderland by Regina, lost his head at the hands of Cora/The Queen of Hearts, and was forced to try to recreate his magical hat that was a portal between lands (interesting twist on the hat, I thought) instead of going home to his beloved daughter.  Although Jefferson was in on the curse and was granted immunity from it's amnesia, his knowledge of who he actually is and his separation from his daughter (who is under the full curse), added to his insanity.  Granted, he and Jennifer Morrison were dating at the time, but their chemistry was extremely palpable and I did secretly wish they would get together on the show.  Oh well, c'est la vie.

Project #2:  Veronica Mars
"J" is for Jackie, Wallace's on-again, off-again girlfriend.  She starts off as a mega bee-och, and just when you start to like her, you find out she's been lying about who is is the whole time!  I was glad to see her go.

Hey, Mark here from 'The Open Hearth' stopping by and seeing what you're up to.

Quite honestly, I have no clue as to who these characters are, but I do admire the needle-point (if that is the correct term?).

Good luck with the rest of the A-Z :)

Great job! And I totally want more Jefferson too!

I have somehow managed to miss the A-Z series until this point, I love them, and I love Once Upon a Time. They're great!

Okay, honest question here. Have you ever sewn your thumb to your craft and not realized it until finished?
