I would say that the doorbell rang, but doorbell is a misnomer. It's really a buzzer that, no matter how many times I hear it, startles me. Thus the buzzer buzzed and knocking commenced. My friendly postal delivery person had a package in her hand, an express mail envelope for my roommate, for which someone (aka me, as the door-answerer) needed to sign. But there was something else, a small box, for me.
Upon opening the box, I discovered all sorts of unexpected fabric treats. Once I recognized the sender, I knew the box contained fabric, as it was part of a fabric swap run by Maranda.
Maranda was in fact my partner and went above and beyond the 2 FQs we agreed to exchange.
This awesome parcel included 4, that's right, 4 fat quarters. And all awesome fabrics at that.
Maranda cleverly packaged everything with strips of fabric as cushioning. I need to remember this for future wrapping.
Once I took the FQs out of the hippos, I put the strips inside, and the hippos are now happily resting on my bookshelf.
Awesomeness all laid out together. What a delightful treat. Thank you, Maranda!
