Spotted

This fabric has been blogged about the place a bit. Seeing it in the Spotlight catalogue is one thing but having a look at in person is another thing.


I thought it might be a bit weedy and thin but its not.

And seeing Jodie’s bag (with Dick & Jane fabric, another one I'm hoarding like a fool!) meant I needed to buy some too. Don’t ask me how much I bought nor how much I spent. Being a fabric-blog tart, I left with the slicker on a roll (but I didn’t buy the whole roll). And the mushroom fabric was bought up big. I forgot how heavy metreage is in comparison to fat quarters. Never mind… I took mum with me and she was a good stick and helped me carry.

We hit a couple of op-shops and scored this funny little String bag. I think it was someone’s school sewing project because it is all hand sewn. There is a little embroidered hole in the middle – to pull through the string maybe?

And a Golden Book. When did Disney hijack Golden Books? They’re the only ones I ever see. Got lucky today.

Some lovely finds here. I'm waiting desperately for this fabric to hit my local spotlight - maybe next week they thought.

Oh I'll have to trot back and see if those mushrooms have arrived here yet. Have you seen the dick and jane challenge - I am making a childs apron so i don't use to much of my Dick and Jane....

Seriously? Spotlight? I am rushing down there tomorrow. I should add that it's the ONLY fabric, haby etc shop in town. I check it out weekly (if not more). Occasionally there's an absolute gem lurking there.

It's worth a look at least to confirm that Spotlight does stock good stuff from time to time.

I went to Spotlight to grab some too and they had only just arrived so I made them put on the stickers so I could buy some.

Good question! And, to be honest, I find the Disneyfied morals to be somewhat dubious!
