New year post

and the 400th post. I have gone back to read past posts and comments and I must to say it was an exciting journey connecting with wonderful bloggers . Of course the first few years the posts were plentiful but life got busy and posting was not so frequent. I  still try to focus on the exciting events. There are certainly too many supporters to name individually but I am so glad to have come to meet you through blog land. 
I actually was lucky enough to meet one supporter in person as we were on tour to Texas and that is Michelle.
   That was the highlight of my trip and way too short a visit. I will never forget the bond of friendship that was made on that  evening.  Michelle and I keep in touch and we WILL see each other again♥

Because of the blog I connected with one lady who has become very special to me and I credit her for all the confidence I acquired  in sewing my quilting projects. 
Yes! That is right it is Karen 
We meet every year at her workshops and Karen came to visit  the quilt show in Saulnierville  as well as the guild . She became a member of La Guilde Acadienne de Clare.  

Sewing continues and this is a project I made starting with the paper piecing center which was a workshop at the guild. I put the borders together to show the members you can do a  paper piecing block and add on to make a large project. 

Add a few borders  in strips and then squares 
A little applique in the corners is an added touch. 
And "voilà" you have a large quilt .
The guild is back in motion for the new year the next workshop will be an apron  
with either the Christmas tree appliqué or
a flowery appliqué to be used in any season. There  are many events on the guild's calender so it is bound to be a busy year . 

Well off  to contemplate the 401 post ♥♥
