Well, it was bound to happen. Christian and I had to come home. Luckily we were home just in time for Melany’s birthday!
One of the things I wanted to accomplish on our trip (besides relaxing and enjoying family ) was to pay a visit to the Textile Discount Outlet in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago. This place was great. There were rooms and rooms of fabrics, many of them were silky and shiny.
My favorite were the raw silks.
I also loved all the zippers in all colors and sizes and laid out for me to admire.
Tons and tons of buttons. A little overwhelming.
The staff was friendly and helpful and I just loved being around all the fabric and notions. I suspect Christian even found it interesting, but he would probably never admit it.
