Spring is here

April 13 - anyone superstitious?  For me it is a great day - the sun is shinning, the trees are blooming - everything looks fresh and new.  Spring is arriving here in Charlevoix and it is about 2 - 3 weeks earlier than usual!  Yea!  There is absolutely nothing prettier than spring - well maybe summer with the green, or fall with the beautiful colors or a winter night with snow glistening - we live in a great world!

Last night at our local guild meeting, Laurie Simpson of Minick and Simpson, spoke and did a trunk show of her beautiful quilts.  What a treat that was.  Laurie is such a wonderful quilter - she has been quilting for 40 years - and the experience shows!  It was a great evening.  Laurie will be doing some classes for us in July and we are all looking forward to it.

Hearts To Holly (along with three other shops) is gearing up for the annual quilt cruizine - what a fun time that is - ride on a comfortable bus and get driven around beautiful northern Michigan to some great quilt shops, get fed some scrumptious meals and see some wonderful demos and trunk shows.  It's a quilter's dream!  Our staff is preparing and is sure to provide a great time!

Have a great weekend - take time to enjoy Spring!

  1. Hey Hearts to Holly! Long time, no blog! I am going to stop by real soon and see what's happening at the shop! Michael was home last week, so all my spare time was spent catching up with him. Hope all is well, and will see you soon.
