Default my friend gave me a huge box of fabric

My friend was over at a mutual friends house and she told him that she had a box of fabric for me! When he bought it to me I was so excited! I opened the box and found the most unappealing fabrics ever! So I called her and said 'thank you' what else could I say? Three months pass by and I see her and she told me that she accidently sent me the WRONG BOX! That box was supposed to go to goodwill. I cant wait to get the real box!! All I could do was laugh....

If the fabric is ugly you just haven't cut it up small enough. Here's hoping the next box is full of beautiful fabric.

At least you were gracious about the first box.

You did the right thing, being gracious, and fate is rewarding you. Hope the next box is awesome!

Hope the next box is better - - -
