But there was that embroidery project to work on. And that sparked an idea — what about putting some embroidery on the purse? (Just one motif, of course — don’t want to overwhelm myself) Well, ok — I figured I’d just finish the leaves on my embroidery project, then I’d start on the purse.
So I worked on that for a while. Then I got a headache. I figured that I had better go lay down — after all, weekends are for relaxing, right? As I was falling asleep, I remembered those blackberries in the freezer. So I felt guilty about not even starting to make that blackberry jam as I dropped off to sleep. After the nap, I still needed to finish the embroidery, so I did that.
Dinner? Oh, yeah. Better eat that. Dinner is important.
But wait a minute — what about the purse? It is so cute, and I could really use a nice big summer purse. And I had been intending to make it — really, I had. My headache began to return as I beat myself up about it. At this point, my darling husband pointed out that I could still work on the purse a bit, even if I can’t finish it.
So that is what I do. I printed and cut out the pattern, then taped it together. By this time, it is 10pm. No more working on the purse for me. *sigh* Maybe next weekend.
Perhaps this is a sign that I need to be more realistic in my planning. What do you all do to keep things from getting overwhelming?
