February in my rearview mirror

I can't believe the month is already drawing to a close.  2013 is 1/6th finished, and Spring is knocking on my door.  Tomorrow I am packing for a quilting retreat and doubt I will get a chance to sit and reflect, so you are getting my monthly review a day early.  I hope you are as delighted and surprised by these few accomplishments as I am. 

I got caught up with some of my bee blocks - these were for Star of Africa.

Tacky the Penguin went to NickyShe for her international children's book quilt;
Tacky finished!

the Rainbow Hare  is making a butterfly quilt;
Texas Butterfly

and Sana is making a "Home is Where the Heart is" quilt.
Home is Where The Heart Is...Texas

Now I am only a month and a half behind.  LOL

It was a good month for swapping too.  I finished three, all of them via Flickr.

"Playing with Posey" went to Angela Nussbaum in DSQ13.

"Birds on a Vine" went to xxxxx, well I can't tell you who it went to because she hasn't gotten it yet, but she will soon.  It was my make for FLiRTS.
