I finally got to open my package!
. . . unfortunately, the post office apparently wasn't too careful with it: some of redheadgeek's swap items were damaged, and one appears to be destroyed.
(I say "appears to be" because, on a partial unwrap, I could feel that it was in pieces; I haven't unwrapped it all the way to see just how bad the damage is, but it's definitely bad.) Which is a real shame, because the swap items are wonderful
Redheadgeek and I did one large all-sins item and seven small items (one per sin). For the small items, she painted ceramic mugs with the names of the sin and neat patterns; for the large item, she made an AMAZING quilt. My pictures don't do justice to it at all
; the main fabrics are gorgeous red and orange, a pretty
tie-dyed-ish fabric on the back, and a black and red satin border. I have no idea where she got the pictures for the sin squares; screenprinting, maybe? If so, they came out REALLY well.
The Wrath mug got chipped around the top, which annoys me especially because I think I like its design the best. Flames, yay! Next to it is the Wrath square on the quilt (which I did for all of them).
Sloth came through intact, whew. There's no pattern on the mug -- very Slothful, redheadgeek.
Speckled Pride mug, which lost its handle. I think the Pride square is one of my favorites off the quilt.
The Greed mug and its little green dollar bills is great! Second favorite mug, definitely.
Gluttony made it through okay! (As you can see from the fact that its handle got photographed.
Envy also lost its handle, drat.
No mug picture, because Lust is the one that got really damaged, but I love
the quilt square here, lots.
Shot of the back of the quilt! It looks more orangey in the photo than it really is, but you can get a sense for the pattern and all.
And the piece de resistance, a shot of the whole quilt (awkwardly) draped over my bed (so I could photograph the whole thing at once).
I love this so
much, redheadgeek. Thank you!
