Wow!!

I have an amazing friend, who I have known, in a way since birth.  We were BFFs in High School.  Life has separated us a few times, but we have managed to reconnect.  Although it is more years since those days than I care to admit, we are still good friends, and as adults, both have discovered sewing as a hobby.  Britta is much more accomplished than I at fiber arts.  She recently destashed and asked if I would like some of her knit fabrics.  You all know how much I love to sew knits, so naturally I was excited to adopt them!  Today two boxes arrived!!!
Wow!!!!  The back row is all knits - interlock, pointelle, jersey and rib knit.  That mulberry interlock on the left is going to become a burda style turtleneck before the week is out...  The other two rows are an amazing assortment of silk, velvet, eyelet, linen, satin, seersucker and a few other things.  And the little gold tin?  Full of homemade fudge!  Yum!!  See what I mean?  She's amazing!

Now, I must get to my machine!
