Monday Morning...........

Morning! Did you all have a pleasant weekend?

Mine was quite a relaxed one. Rugby and Grand Prix seemed to take up a lot of it.....although i'm not meant I had guilt free crochet time.....WOO HOO!

And, as if I didn't have enough WIP's to be getting on with, I decided to start two more projects......oh.....but I am LOVING working on them. Quick and simple, and completely in love. I don't seem to be producing any finished articles to 'show and tell', but you never know, they may all come at once. I was a busy bee last week doing a bit on this.....and a bit on that. I have set myself the task of spending this morning organising my week well so that I can pack in as much as I can. NO dawdling, NO procrastinating, NO head in the clouds. Pure graft this week.

Ha ha....who am I trying to kid! But one shall try. You never know, I might just do it. I am the worlds biggest daydreamer. 

So, the sun pokes its head from behind the clouds to say good morning to me. I shall say BIG Good Morning back and get stuck into the day!

Have a super duper Monday all!



  1. Hej Vanessa
    Good morning to you.
    Lovely cheery Rose is that from your garden?
    Have a great week ahead my lovely
    P.S. Just off to inbox you I need to ask you something please ;-)

  2. Dear Vanessa,

    Have a beautiful day! I am so pleased you got a chance to do some crochet this weekend. It generally makes for a happy lady, right?

    We are a little sad here as our dear barely-out-of-kittenhood cat has been attacked by another cat and is fighting a nasty infection.

    Send her some love across the Channel, please?

  3. I don't know how you do it, but just watching all of your lovely pictures loading makes me feel a little brighter on a dull day! So thank-you for taking the time to do this :)

  4. I spent a lovely weekend with family!

    Beautiful pictures, I wish you a pleasant and a nice Monday, kisses:)

  5. Thank you for such lovely bright and pretty pictures today! I hope you can orgainse things so you get lots of crafty time this week. I have a few WIP's myself going on here and hope to make some progress with them all this week.
    Enjoy your projects, Vanessa!

  6. Your photos are so cheery first thing on a monday morning! :)
    Hope you have a lovely, productive week!

  7. Hello,
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who procrastinates! I would love to be able to get on with some crochet projects, but sadly too much boring paperwork and admin to do. I need to get all of that out of the way first, but it keeps piling up - or my husband finds me more to do!! Ah well, I'll get there in the end!
    In the meantime, your cheery blog and lovely pictures keep me going! Here I am procrastinating again and not getting on!! Have a great week!

  8. what a lovely post again vanessa. You make me smile every time without fail, with the words and the pictures. That's a good way to start the week.
    I'm in the middle of finishing my first crochet granny project ... a doll blanket for my daughter's doll Poppy and I finished her knitted sweater this weekend as well. I have to admit that I'm very proud of that. And then I think it is time to make my son a sweater as well. He wants to have a homemade one as well :)
    But first back to work.
    thanks for the cheery post

  9. Happy Monday, glad you had a great weekend xxxx

  10. Graft....that is what I could do with. I've been thinking along the same lines, I've even been thinking about making one of those chore chart things so I can be less frantic and more ordered.....yes, I am that mum in the school yard looking ever so slightly flustered! But no more!

  11. You always post beautiful pictures. I love reading your posts. Hope you have a good productive week xx

  12. What a gorgeous end of season rose. Have a great week Vanessa :D

    warm greetings from a rather greyish Nederland ( though that's just the weather of course, your blog really coloured my day ;) )

  17. Hi Vanessa,

    Such colourful photo's from your home! How do you find the time to do all those projects with the bears around?! I wish I could multi task as good as you do :-)!

    Love your crocheted hearts!

    Happy new week,

    Madelief x

  18. What gorgeous colourful photo's and so pretty. I love the little pastel crochet hearts hanging up. And that rose what a gorgeous colour i can just imagain the smell. Hope you have had a lovely monday and enjoy the rest of your week and your projects, dee x

  19. Today was gloomy weather here and Im feeling a little tired after a HECTIC weekend...your lovely bright photo's & cheerful words have revived me!
    Im going to treat myself tonight to a nice cuppa from the tea pot and in a lovely cup&saucer!!

  20. Ha ha! I've been doing the same thing, I've got projects all over the place. I shall have to follow your lead and make a list!
    Have a great week. ♥

  21. Im the same i love starting new projects then get bored and want to start something new again but im really trying hard to finish things ive started before embarking on anything new , well thats my plan not sure how long it will laST X

  22. Haha - your weekend sounded similar to mine. I am loving the rugby world cup, we often watch four hours of rugby and I crochet my way, guilt free for those hours. Total bliss & the rugby isn't bad either!

  23. Your pictures are always so lovely and bright Vanessa, how do you do it?? :) Mine are quite often dull and dingy in this dismal weather we're having now! Anyway,hope you're getting on well with your projects, looking forward to seeing some ta-dahs! Have a lovely rest of your week, Jenny x
