Not the Craft Fair, but better ;-)

I decided not to go the Craft Fair yesterday - I couldn't stand the thought of the crowds and all those prams and wheelie carts.

But I went on a crafty shopping trip anyway ;-)

I went for a drive to the new Gepps Cross Spotlight - let me say, I love my little Clovercrest, the staff are just great, but the Gepps Cross store is about 4 times the size!  It is so well laid out and organised and so VERY neat and tidy and the staff are GREAT too!

I got some great fabric and bits and pieces

I picked up a colour guide - hopefully, it will help me in picking my fabrics

great aussie sunburnt country browns & golds

navy & white and grey & white

fat quarter bundle - I don't normally like greens, but I am quite taken with this combination.

After visiting Spotlight, I went on a mission to locate Need4Bead - a new store opened up close to me.  A friend recommended I go and have a look.  Let me tell you, I was most impressed with this new store.  Staff were great and most helpful. 

I only spent $20, but I got all of these!

It could be a dangerous thing with a bead shop now so very close - only a 10 minute drive ;-)
