Ding, Dong... The Fabric Fairy is Here!
And the doorbell rang again before I could get to the door from my reclining position on the chaise.
I threw my book into the air and where it landed I don't care!
It was one of my favorite people... the cute little UPS man in his cute little brown truck. He only brings good things!
"Package from the Fabric Fairy... sign here, please", he sang.
You betcha!!
Ceremoniously, I set the box on the coffee table, and got a really cold, cold, cold Diet Pepsi.
I settled on the couch with scissors in hand... wait, a gulp of the soda... and carefully opened the package.
Slooooooowly... delaying the gratification.
I carefully folded back the cardboard flaps, as a dazzling display of color blinded my eyes. WOW... where are my sunglasses?
And what would be the next thing any blogger would do? You bet... get that camera for this photo op.
Snap! Snap! Snap!
Oooooooh... after all these years, Kaffe Fassett has come to my house to stay.
What a lovely afternoon... swoon!

When I see Fassetts fabrics, I think they are pieces of art tehmselves. You only need to frame them. Aren’t you scared to cut them into pieces???

So what are you going to do with them? (My package never arrived, alas. Some wretched thieving postman somewhere, presumably. Thank you so much anyway, for the thought!)
