Lindsay; Charlie and I love that our little ones will be old enough this year to be awed by the wonder of Christmastime. We're looking forward to the quiet stillness of Christmas Eve when the excitement and anticipation is tangible in the air. Seeing this time of year through Aidan and Annie's eyes our hearts become young again and we're awakened to the magic that this season brings.We can't wait to hear the tiptoe of eager little feet on Christmas morning!


Charlie and Lindsay really put some thought into this website. Offering discounts if you become a frequent shopper, or even if you buy three or more yards. The discounts can get VERY BIG, to the more you buy the more you save.

  42. How can someone have just one favorite when it comes to fabric lines?????? That is not a fair question. I actually ordered some of that frolic fabric last week as well. I for the owl and the squirrel treasure map. I guess I would choose that for the moment.

  45. Oh you know I'm entering this one! Fabric? YES PLEASE!

    My favorite fabric at Hawthorne is none other than Etsuko Furuya's Birds in Summer. I'd make some curtains for my new house which we will be fixing up to move into over the Christmas break! (That is, if I had the case to buy that much fabric. That's the thing about buying a house, it eats up your money fast!)
