Since it's now February,( I know it's not the first anymore, but near enough), I'm looking back at what I accomplished last month. It seems like there is a let down after the activity and pressure of Christmas, and I coasted on that for a while. Now I'm gearing up again!
At the moment I'm all about stars. First, the Oh My Stars quiltalong. I'm running to keep up, so far I'm still about on schedule.

and back, another star, I can't help myself!
I'm linking to Lily Quilts Fresh Sewing Day, and WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. There's so much great creativity for you to see at both those sites!
Till next time,
