T'is the Season for "Busy"

.............even with the guild meeting closed for the summer months there are lots of activities going on. I can't believe it has been so long since I posted on my blog... 

Before we did close up at the guild we were honored to be filmed for a documentary on Acadian culture by the  
                                        Histoires francophones Inc.

Sound and camera couple were happy to be photographed.

Our Juniors were the highlights 
of the filming as they showed their talents at hand quilting .

After a lovely "last supper" together for the season  
(which I forgot to take pictures ) 
we ventured off on a road trip  
for a fabric shop hop. 
Off to Avonport
