I'm so sorry for the massive delay in posting. As mentioned in the discussion thread, my best friend sadly passed away on the 13th after two weeks in the hospital following massive, open-heart surgery. To say my mind has been pretty much not working is putting it mildly.
Tanza made me the most amazing swap. I am so spoiled. So spoiled in fact, I think I need to send her more stuff! She really went above and beyond - and much more then we discussed. Just really fantastic items. I swear, the absurd delay in my posting is in no way a reflection on how awesome the items she sent me are.
Everything all together:
A bleach-stencil bat shirt like off my wist, four napkin/silverware holders with embroidered Phoenix, a Taurus embroidered bag, a bird and tree dual-sided pillow slipcover, four Phoenix embroidered placemats and an embroidered Phoenix table runner! (And all the items are in my favorite color combo of blue and brown!)
Close ups of the embroidery. (She showed me several phoenix images and let me pick which one to use and then she did the cool color gradation for me to make it into a phoenix!)
The Taurus bag (May 16th so I'm all Taurus!
The bird in branches pillow slip cover (two sided)
And another general shot to show you the colors of the holders, runner and placemats as a set. Oh and she even used a card that I had wisted because I loved the image.
You are so amazing, Tanza! I am honored to have danced with you this round and I can only hope you enjoy what I made you - even if after receiving yours I don't think is enough! - as much as I do.
