This is what I just received yesterday from one of my Online groups.When this swap was announced I jumped and started my blocks I was so excited to swap with all these wonderful ladies ,as the date came to swap there was nobody to swap with everyone needed extra time so the date was moved and as the second time came to swap I mailed my blocks and was like a little child on X-mas morning could not wait to see what I got.And when I removed the blocks from the envelop my heart just sunk and disappointment took over. It was supposed to be a cream on cream theme ,which was changed to cream with tans which in the fabrics is O.K. But it was the work on the blocks that I was so upset about. Some looked just messy and carelessly thrown together, added colors which I do not understand on a tone on tone theme and to get two blocks that are exactly the same ? .I did get one of my own blocks back and thank`s to Rose Anne I have this Beauty!
As you can see this is the kind of block I was expecting to get back, and here are all of my blocks .
I was so disappointed that I for the first time ever I mailed the group to let them know how I felt. I have never changed someone`s work but this will be a first for me.I will take them and reuse the blocks adding my own lace, embroidery and embellishments I have put a lot of time,work and money into my blocks and to have received what I did just made me decide this is a lesson learned ,first and last time for such a swap.
