Slow progress

Still beavering away on bits and pieces for the craft fair, but it feels a little slow going at the moment. Illness, teething and a busy weekend also put paid to starting anything new. We are also trying to finish painting/tidying/finishing our house up so we can get it on the market, so by the time I sit down at night after toddler bedtime, chores and DIY...I can manage a little bit of hand sewing but not much else! I long for a bigger house so we can stretch out a bit (and hoping for a little bit of sewing space too!), but it all seems so far away at the moment (I will not talk about the house we have seen and want, because our chances of getting it are small and I'm trying not to think about it too much...and failing...darn...).

Still, a few things have moved on. Another notebook cover is complete, and I have two more in the works. Squint photo for this one I'm afraid!
Different fabric for this one
I've also worked up one of the little Mogs I first posted about here. The fish button was a cute addition, and although the ribbon hanger is squint, I still quite like it. One to work from anyway!
I'm also going to work up some scraps into more hearts like the one I made for our friends baby here, but without the text, and just with some décor. 
You can't go wrong with red and white!
Even with my non-existant craft fair knowledge I'm thinking some smaller items might be a good idea yes? Anyway, I'll hopefully have more to report next week. I'm taking tonight off sewing to get some well-earned sleep, and hoping we get some good weather tomorrow so my toddler can burn off energy outside for once!

Oh and thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post, I will reply to you all!
