Parcel received!

Poor Donna finally received her February 5x5 from me. The mail seems to go faster from West to East and slower from East to West. Go figure. This is what I sent her with a red theme in honor of Valentines day:

The first one on the left is vintage. When my step-grandmother passed away, I went through her sewing trunk and took out all kinds of great fabric. That particular piece is from an unfinished skirt. I also have quite a few blocks for a quilt that I'd like to finish up and give to my step mom at some point. It's something I really want to do, but am putting it off because it'll be the biggest quilt I've worked on and that's just scary!

So now on to Donna and I and a testament to our Kindred Craftiness:

We both included homemade valentines inspired by ideas found over at Purl without discussing it beforehand! If that's not kindred, I don't know what is!!

That is so kindred I can't handle it.

I love that one of these is from your step-grandmother's chest! so great. I can't wait to use them.

I put a few of last month's into the doll quilt I'm working. Hopefully I'll be able to write about that soon!

I just can't decide what to do with mine. I'm scared that I use them and then down the road I think of the perfect thing to have done with them all as a collection. Isn't that the problem with any beautiful fabric?!
