Most CHRISTMAS FABRICS are MARKED DOWN
30% in the store and on-line. You can see them and all the SALE
It would be worth your
trip to Newton, as there are more at Charlotte's Sew Natural, downtown, than

Fabric & Stitchery at the Mall as well as some sweet BABY FLANNELS

Chicago is my kinda'
town! It has trees, sky scrapers and CUP CAKE MOBILES! How

Lots of fun can be had at
Chicago's AMERICAN GIRL PLACE. While trying to take
pictures of the girls coming to "Mecca", with their dolls
and assorted entourages, my photos seemed filled with guys - dads, brothers, you

The young boy on the edge of this

sister by saying "this is the dog I want, this is really, really

myself, I always have fun here too.
We carry KWIK SEW
patterns at the Mall store and they have some great DOLL CLOTHES
designs, some with matching GIRL sizes. Come check them out!

location. Or just drop me an email and I'd be happy to provide
details like price, availability, etc.

hotel and were waiting for a taxi at the front door, fire trucks
started arriving in mass!
Turns out there really was a fire in
our hotel. We felt lucky to not be trapped in the
Notice Randy on the right side of this photo.
"Feet, do your stuff!" LOL, anyway, it was a fun
trip. (We learned later that no one was hurt. Some may have been
disappointed if checking in for the weekend and looking forward to the sauna, which
I never saw, but was where the fire started. :) )
time for saunas! We're all excited about our upcoming classes for the
