Home Again

Well, I’m back from Norway (& Sweden & Finland)! I had a great trip. We got to see the places my Great-Great Grandparents grew up before they moved to Canada, and a bunch of cousins.

It snowed! Nearby to where my great-great-grandpa grew up.

But now I’m home πŸ˜€ And I have to say, very much refreshed and ready to go again.

So on that note, there is a bunch of exciting stuff coming up πŸ˜€ I’ve got some pretty exciting news in the next couple days (just to tease you :D) and some good stuff planned for the blog. So stay tuned.

Not only are exciting things happening on the blog, big things are happening at work… Quilting From the Heart and The Sewing Center are moving at the beginning of January! We’ll be in one location, so we’ll be able to do some really cool things. So if you live locally, be sure to check that out.

Not to mention…

Modern Sewists Retreat Colour

I’m hosting a Modern Quilting Retreat this spring! It’s going to be so much fun! Cheryl Arkinson is doing a trunk show, we’ve got a professional photographer to take pictures of you and your quilts, demo’s on a bunch of quilting techniques, great food (that you don’t have to cook) and all sorts of great times!! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER! You definitely won’t regret it.

All right, that’s it for me. I’ll catch you later in the week for FMF!

Later days!
Kathleen.

  1. What a wonderful trip! My parents emigrated from Finland to Canada in the early 1920’s, met, married, my brother was born there. Lucky for me, they came to the U.S., where I was born. We went to the old country when I was little, but never got to go back and see my family history. I’m sorry I didn’t scrimp and save so that I could go. You are so fortunate to have done that.
