Do you find yourself putting off the silly little jobs - the ones that you know will only take you a few minutes to do...but you just keep putting them off?

I'm the worst culprit for this - especially when it comes to the finishing off on projects that just need a tiny bit of hand sewing or a buttonhole sewn in. 

With a craft fair tomorrow, I desperately needed to replenish a few items of stock - including my felt/fabric hanging hearts, so I finally sat myself down with my sewing roll and sewed on the final buttons and hanging loops -

It took me a while as I kept getting slightly distracted with Twitter.....

Another little job I managed to get done today was a buttonhole.  I can't say too much about this project as it's for a specific recipient so I'll show  you properly once they've received it.  Here's the fabulous buttonhole alongside the lovely felt self-covered button I made to go with it -

I also managed to whip up some little lavender sachets for the craft fair, I've been meaning to do these for ages but not had the time.  Now that I'm at the end of my first week of self-employment, I am finding I have plenty of time to get creative :)

If you're in the Fife/Dundee area why not pop along to the Christmas craft fair which is being held at the YMCA in Broughty Ferry tomorrow, 10am - 4pm.  There will be mince pies all round!  Hope I manage to get one - it'll be my first of the festive season!
