In the deepest ocean, The bottom of the sea....

Just a little post tonight to tell you what a hard working girl I've been!!! Burning the midnight oil, making stock for the forth coming Fair.As per usual I have left everything to the last blasted moment... why didn't I get things done weeks ago? It's the 'plenty of time' syndrome, huh.
Anyway, two good solid days, head down, not too many distractions and I have managed to pull
a few items out of the hat, as they say.

(Last post was title lyrics ~ Use Somebody by Kings of Leon)

I hope you have had a relaxing weekend, have a great week and thank you for stopping by.

hi Viv, you have as usual made a lot of lovely things. Sounds like you are like me and leave things too late, I seem to spend ages trying to think of ideas and then only come up with any good ones at the last minute! Looking forward to seeing you at the weekend. Safe journey. lots of love Jane xxxx

Hi Viv

I was doing so well, but am in the same panic mode now. I'm sure it'll all be alright on the day!

Gorgeous things again ... of course. I found a couple of 'bits' that might be useful to you. If I remember to pack them they're yours to do with what you will!!

I wish I could come to your fair, I would be leaving your stall with bulging bags!! I love the little book at the end of your post, and all the purses are beautiful - very inspiring as usual!

Cathy said...

Gorgeous purses. I hope you do really well at the fair. I love handmade craft fairs at Christmas time. What a pity you are too far away. I know what you mean about leaving everything till the last minute but in my case I think it focuses my mind, and I actually achieve more under pressure.

Donna said...

Wow, you obviously work well under pressure Viv. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday :-)

Cowboys and Custard said...

Oh you are a tease Viv.. what are those lyrics from.. I think I must be stuck in a time warp.. 60's music only.
As always you have made some delicious goods.. and can't wait to see them in all their glory at the fair.
2 sleeps now!
