...and spent a fortune!

I went in for buttons and left with

cashmere yarn
xmas card makign stuff
xmas decoration stuff
organza wrap for a bouquet
new knitting needles
folio for dd's project
fimo stuff (stockign fillers)
glow in the dark hama beads for Halloween
Face paints

DO you think I have a problem grin?

Usually I try to support little independent stores,but this time have gone off the rails!

I need to go back for buttons blush, so is there anything good that I missed?

lol RR. I have banned myself from there, especially with DD who comes out with armfuls of stuff and then expects me to sit and craft with her all weekend!!!! (I am a meany!). Did you notice any christmas coloured plain round buttons, quite small, whilst you were there? I'll go if I know I can get some, but it's too dangerous otherwise grin

Went for the first time yesterday was fortunately resrained by virtue of my grumbly dd, thereby saving myself a fortune!

Thats always a good ploy, take a child, cos u never wanna stay around for long!

cherrycake, just don't take mine - you'll never get out, and you won't get a sniff of that voucher, she'll have spent it before you have even got to the store! grin

OOOOOOoooooh I love hobbycraft - nothing useful to add but I do get a tragic excited feeling when I walk through the doors blush grin

RR - I haven't seen it. I'm going to trawl the site now.....I'm so glad you like her, she was rather special (if I say so myself grin)
