Candleberry Country

I had a lovely day with Mum today. The weather was mild and sunny, and we went to Yarragon for the day as planned. We had a look at some shops and had lunch at a nice eatery while we were there. Now I should mention, a trip to this town usually costs me a fortune because I end up buying way too much than I should, and today was no exception.

My favourite shop here is called Candleberry Country. It is chocked full of patchwork and stitchery supplies. Lots of primitive looking pieces can be found here too. I can spend hours in this shop and I think today two hours passed away while we were there. Mum finished looking before me and had a sit down while I still browsed. Mind you, while I was looking she would end up finding other things she wanted to buy (which she did!). She said at one stage that I better stop looking because it was costing her more and more money as time went on.:)

I'll take some pictures of what I bought tomorrow in the daylight. For now though, Natalie who owns Candleberry Country, was kind enough to let me take some photos of the shop. I have placed more in an album for you to look at if interested.

What a fantastic shop! I'm anxious to know what you're going to make with your purchase. I got your comment and yes, I love sheep, as you can see from some previous postings too, lol. What is the name of the sheep design in your profile pic? I love it and need to put it on my "to buy list"!

Sounds as though you and your Mum had a great day Jane. The shop looks so exciting and I can understand why you would spend so much time there. So much to see and you don't want to miss any.

Your holiday pictures are totally amazing. Yarragon is not too far from where I live, I will have to convince hubby to stop there one day so that I can take a look at the shop.

Thanks for all your comments! It probably has to be my favourite shop to visit.

Just a quick note for Tammy - the sheep in my profile picture is part of a Shepherd's Bush pattern called Autumn Blessings. It's a kit they sell and I started it a long time ago and have never finished it. It's very cute and I must get back to it some day.
