Meh!

I've finally realised that I actually really don't like Mondays; yes there was a beautiful rainbow just as I arrived at work today and shopping delivered to the door, but also grazed knees and tears before school and moody kids afterwards.

I haven't even mustered the energy to sew on the Cub badge that has risen to the top of my To Do list.  It has been sat on the side for about 5 weeks so I'll have to do it before tomorrow's meeting... probably!

It's not all doom and gloom; more lazy-itis; I guess some evenings are just best spent with a cup of tea and Sports Relief Bake Off on TV.  (Not going to be a patch on last night's Sherlock, but it'll do!).

Hope your week has started with more of a bang than a fizzle; and as if I would leave you without a picture, here's some recent Touchdraw play...


The reality of the Y-seams is not something to consider when not feeling 100% optimistic though!  So maybe not today then xxx

  1. That would be mighty pretty! You could always give the Y-seams a miss :)

  2. It's a wonderful design but I hear you about the Monday lazy-itis, blah feeling. Don't you just hate when it's got you in its grip? I hope Tuesdays are much more to your liking :)

  3. Fab design. There would be no Y seams if you treated the longer/larger pieces as oblongs, then affixed a square to the appropriate end, diagonally sewed across the end, cut off excess and there you go. Simples :-)

  6. Well that's Monday over! It can only get better from here! You could always cheat with the Y seams and do hsts! Jxo

  9. I LOVE that drawing! If you master Y seams please do a tutorial :) It is on my list of going to learn in 2014... maybe LOL

  10. I have been wanting to try TouchDraw. Not sure about trying the Y seams, however...

  12. I am with you on Monday mornings - it is the morning of my language lesson and I always dread it, having never done enough homework!!

  14. Bletchly Circle is good for cheering up an otherwise dull and unconvincing Monday

  15. But even playing like that will return your happiness! Give them a box of plasters and keep messing with Touchdraw!

  16. I never liked sewing badges on! I must say that Monday is my favourite day of the week as it is a 'getting organised' day for me. I find it sets me up for the week. I am also aware that most people don't feel that way though.

  17. HSTs as a Y Seam alternative?

  18. Monday's are really rather rubbish. I'm always tired after work on Mondays. Like your picture. We'll just look at how pretty it is and not think about Y seams and stuff :-)

  19. Mondays and grumpy children are definitely the worst. Loving your picture, apart from the y-seams!

  20. Love the touch draw doodling, you need to make it (maybe on the weekend, rather than a Monday though). The past fortnight has been so busy for me that I've scarcely noticed Monday has happened until we're at about Wednesday - you can do that when you're self employed though ;)

  21. Love the touchdraw artistry. Wish I had gone to Lynne's class at the retreat!

  22. A bit late now it's Wednesday but I don't like Monday's either!! Such a contrast to the laziness of a Sunday!! Loving the touchdraw design but I don't like the sound of Y seams either ;-)
