odd note: I’ve gotten a couple of comments from friends telling me that the picture of the placemat isn’t showing up? I’m not sure what’s happening – I can see it (I think 🙂 ) Anyway, I’ve uploaded it again – please let me know whether or not it’s there. If any of the other patterns don’t have visible pictures, I’d like to know about that too, so I can (try to) fix it. Thanks –
