I just got the best swap package ever in the mail today. It made it here safe and sound from Australia, despite a misspelling in the address. Tanza (witch in Herbology training) made me some great stuff!
Firstly, my Raven(s)claw lap quilt (apparently, the house elf she has for embroidering things is an atrocious speller -
). It's about 3 feet by 2 and a half feet - just right for covering up my legs.
I don't know if you can see it, but alternating squares are embroidered with quotes from Gilderoy Lockhart and the Weasly Twins, including a couple of my favorites ("Give her hell from us Peeves"). Also, there are Potterpuff characters embroidered on and a bunch of other things (the Dark Mark). The other squares are from Hogwarts crest fabric, and stars and moons.
Close ups of my favorite patches
and (like the quilt wasn't enough), there is a Ravenclaw Quidditch team shirt for me (Chaser, #17). It's fantastic.
Action Shot (which was difficult - as I don't have a full mirror in the house, only a half mirror in the bathroom).
Also, we did a side-swap, where I got some cloth pads, which I neglected to take a picture of (and which are not Ravenclaw themed), which I'm also super excited to try out (but it'll have to wait a month or so).
Thank you so much Tanza! I love everything! You're my hero forever!
