The Summer is flying by....

and we are busy planning upcoming events. In fact these are the kind of events you need to write on your calendar. Liberty Bell Quilts is hosting Amy Barickman trunk show and book signing on Thursday, August 5 from 6 - 9 in the evening.
Don't forget the shop hop August 14 - 21st, we still have passports with pins. We will be having demos, sales, and refreshments. A free pattern for a fabulous quilt will be available in each shop. Prize drawings for cool sewing items will take place daily, in addition to the grand prize drawing for $50.00 gift certificates in each shop! So pack those address labels in your purse and get ready for the Amazing Quilt Race 2010. We are planning some special activities for our anniversary week August 8th.

Oh My!!! now that I see what is coming up and un-packing the new fabrics I had better get going I have work to do!!!

Blue Angels are gone ....

and sadly my O-Ma baby (grand-baby) is gone too. I am back to work and the kids are heading home to Washington D.C. We had a fun packed week here in the Leelanau peninsula; wine tasting, dune climbing, polka festing, sitting in the pool and just enjoying our beautiful area. O-Pa (my husband) and I got to babysit everyday. O-Pa was much better at feeding August (O-Ma baby's name) but I knew how to put the baby to sleep (your thinking I bored her to sleep- perhaps!). She is quite the cuddler (not really a word according to spell check) and kisser(apparently kisser is a word in spell check).

Enough with all that baby stuff. The store has been receiving new fabric, patterns and notions. So many new Batiks that some of the older batiks have been moved to the sale room (Oh yea!!! you read that right BATIKS ON SALE)

I have mastered posting the "Block of the Week" BOW on the Liberty Bell Quilts website. The blocks are desserts and finish at 12 inches . Every week a new block. Join us for some fun and HEA! it's free.

I think I just saw the UPS truck, guess it's back to work for me. Holiday is over. Stop in the air conditioning is on!
