Welcome my Guest Blogger - Anna Branch

 It is my pleasure to introduce my Guest Blogger - Anna Branch. She is from Canada and enjoys a very interesting life. She says she is living the dream. 

Welcome, Anna. Thank you for joining us today.


Thank you, Nan, for giving me the opportunity to be a guest blogger this month.  Blogging is such a wonderful way to meet people around the world, share thoughts, experiences and local customs.  I started my blog when I moved from Edmonton, Alberta which is in western Canada to a rural area of north central Ontario, located in the center of the country and approximately 3500 kilometres away.  I wanted to share with my friends back in the bustling city how I was adjusting to and enjoying life in the country. Since those early months, I have added quilting stories and patterns as well as our experience raising chickens and learning to make maple syrup.

Test Block 1
Today, as I look out my studio window, I can see a brilliant sun turning the snow surface into  a million glistening diamonds.  The maple trees still bear evidence of the most recent snowfall which has gathered along branches and frosted the various curves and bends.  It is a lovely sight and it makes it difficult to turn from it to my sewing machine where I am working on a pieced tulip block. These blocks will be put on point and alternated with log cabin blocks.

Although, I do other methods of quilting such as hand appliqué and paper piecing, I enjoy paper piecing the most.  I design most of my own patterns and have been fortunate to have a small but faithful group of quilters who purchase them from my site on Craftsy.  I also sell my quilts on  Quilts for Sale. (both these sites can be accessed from my blog: arkangelcreations.blogspot.com).  The income I get from this plus my writing enables me to keep quilting.

 This quilt found a home in England.

I love my life here in our backwoods and am fortunate to be able to share it with a wonderful husband and equally wonderful little dog plus a flock of chickens
Blessings from,
The Back Woods Quilter

Thank you Anna for sharing your story today and I thank my readers for stopping by to meet Anna.

Again I thank her for being a Guest Blogger. I will be having more Guest Bloggers over the next few months and believe me you won't want to miss a single one. I will be introducing them in my newsletters, so be sure and sign up. There will also be specials offered with every newsletter, so add your name to the list.
Until next time...
