venturing North...

Firstly let me wish you a very Happy New year.
2015 is full of promise of an array of very exciting things...which is a good job as it hasn't started all that clever.

My dear Grandma passed away last week after not having the strength to recover from falling and breaking her hip on Christmas Day. Whilst she was 96 and had a wonderful life - she was married to my Grandad for 72 years...I can't even imagine that!...and between them had 3 daughters, 8 grand-children and 17 great grand-children - she was my beloved Grandma and shall be sorely missed.

Grandma gave me my love of sewing so this year, with all I have lined up already, will be done with her at my heart and with her proudly looking down and cheering me on as if she was here.

One thing I have lined up that I am very excited about, is a weekend of workshops and An Evening with Karen Lewis at My Bearpaw and Edinburgh Modern Quilt Guild.

I won't tell you about the workshops as apparently they are all sold out already...wow, thank you Edinburgh!

However, if you would like to come and hear my story about my journey to where I am, I would love to see you! For more details and to book a ticket go right here.

This year is set to be full of adventure and excitement and that, my friends, is what life is all about.

Happy 2015 and l'chaim x


  1. Oh Karen, I am very sorry for your loss.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother. I'm glad you have a lot of things to look forward to! That screen is fantastic.

  3. Condolences on the loss of your dear grandmother.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. Grandmothers are very special people and I know you will miss her, but the love you shared with her will be in every stitch you take!

  5. I hope the rest of 2015 is far, far better than the start has been xxx

  6. So sorry to hear about your Grandma, Karen. X
