Well, the baby shower is over but my work is not. Still have a baby hat to crochet and maybe another bib. Luckily the pressure has lessened. Now I just have to remember to actually do them. This is another one of my strong points - finishing part of a gift but not the rest. I still have a placemat to make for my niece that I started for Xmas of 2008! Wow! Of course I still have ornaments that I started in 2006 that never got finished. 8)
So is the pressure on myself really any less than it was before? I am thinking not. I still put a lot of pressure on myself to get these things done and then feel guilty if I don't get them finished. Each time I swear that it will be different and each time ends up the same. And then what happens? I feel even more guilty and put the project away so I don't have be reminded of the fact that it didn't get done. No wonder I love being "alone" so much. I'm never really alone. Guilt seems to be my constant companion. Hmmmm. I'll have to do something about that because I really do enjoy peaceful aloneness.
