A mailbox full of awesome – part two

30 Jun

As I was assembling my last post, I suddenly realised that I had received a whole bunch of awesome swap pieces that I hadn’t blogged yet. (Pretty much the only piece I had posted was this shiatsu chart by feminizzle.)

I therefore present part two of this swap showcase, starting with the Phat Quarter Comic Swap, back in March 2010. I embroidered xkcd for shaebay, and received this piece from taff1973:

It’s a beautifully rendered piece of cyanide and happiness, and it was hanging in my office pretty much the whole time I had an office.

Back in October 2010, the swap theme was “Oh! The Horror!”, resulting in a gallery of awesome embroidered horror mash-ups. I made bad zombie puns for AKAwhiteknuckles, and received this from The Relaxolotl:

At the very beginning of the swap, she asked me how I felt about obscure Shakespeare plays. My response: Hells Yes! And thus I received this pun-based stitchery, inspired by Shakespeare’s Two Noble Kinsmen. But that’s not the cool bit. This is the cool bit:

Switch off the lights, and the punchline is revealed: glow-in-the-dark, skeletal Chernobyl Kinsmen. Really, what more could a girl ask for?
