December 23 and a Revelation

To continue with what I did last Friday night…

Red paper with white dots

Now for the Revelation part.

Yesterday while I was at work reheating leftovers for lunch and trying to decide if I should get my knitting out during lunch, I had a revelation.  All knitting projects (except Mr. Aitch’s Musica mitts) are on hold.  I have been knitting feverishly for several days trying to get gift knitting finished for today.  Gift knitting for my co-workers.  Not happening.  I was putting too much pressure on myself and needed a break.  It wasn’t fun anymore. 

My family means more to me than my co-workers.  Sorry, Co-workers, but I don’t think any of you read this blog anyway.  Your Christmas gifts will be finished after Christmas.  Like it or not, that’s the way it is.

Has that ever happened to you?

  1. Yes, it has happened to me. It is difficult but I learned to not put myself under that pressure a while ago. NO is a great word. I usually get the great ideas when there is absolutely NO time to do them. Like right now….I want to make a small quilt for a wall hanging….but I don’t have time and I have too many other things that should/need to get done….like clean this house! Honestly I would love to pay someone to clean….I hate it so much. Well, I guess I will go do something that I hate.


  2. If you’re not enjoying it, what is the point? Good for you for taking a breather. Needless anxiety for Christmas.

    And Jude, I should be cleaning, but instead I’m reading her blog! The need to clean will always be present, especially at my house. It’ll still be there tomorrow!


Your thoughts? I read them all.
