Went to the country on the weekend. Peddled some of my wares, felt weird, but got over it. Hopefully I'll have some of my new dolls and wares up in a few country stores very soon.

Well, I've been craftin' like a maniac and have sourced some very sweet fabrics to make my new dolls with. Here is a pic of the dolls in progress. Spotlight had a 20% off everything in store tonight. Went in around 8pm thinking the crowds would have gone the bloody hell home, but no lots of keen shoppers still there. Bagged a trolley tonight and watched it like a hawk.(Very few and far between at the Newie store) So much better to shop with a trolley than lugging rolls and rolls of fabric around a very messy shop full of trip hazards. Mainly bought quilting fabrics as these seem to be the only ones that are a decent weight as opposed to all the crappy thin stuff spotlight is known for. Spotlight has a monopoly on fabrics here and it makes me crazy!!! Where is a bit of healthy competition? Nowhere - so therefore spotlight can sell any old crap served up by these old surly birds that tell you that you are not lined up in the correct spot. ARRRgh, drives me nuts!
