Did You Miss Me? Shimmer Braid Update

Not a lot going on around here lately but I'm finally feeling better, and, better yet, getting my sewing mojo back!!  I did manage to finish up my pincushions for the Quilter's Garden Swap that were due at the end of February.  They were finished in the nick of time... 

But this last weekend, I really felt good and started really sewing again.  So the push began to try to finish up my Shimmer Braid QAL blocks for February before the new blocks were released for March.  And I almost made it.  I finished them last night and the pattern for March was released yesterday!  :) 

Seeing those last night made me really want to see how the first two months looked together.  So I brought them to the office today and laid them out for a gander (yes, I'm Texan and we do still use that word occasionally!). 

Just love it!  Can hardly wait to start this month's blocks!  What have yall been up to?  I have really missed you!  I will get to my email this week so if you asked questions, I'll be responding.  I'll also get this month's post up for the Not So Last Minute Christmas Quilt Along.  We're doing the snowflake!
