I'm one of those people who avoids commitment. It's not that I'm lazy. I like to keep busy with multiple projects and usually short-term because I need 'instant' gratification. The 501 Project is a long term commitment. But lately I've been feeling a little overwhelmed with the project and wonder why in the world I took it on. I just haven't wanted to work on it. I tentatively set a deadline to finish sometime in 2014. That gives me plenty of time to do other stuff too. This morning I was feeling guilty and pressured because I haven't worked on the project in a week or so. But I talked myself down by recognizing that it won't hurt anything or anyone if it takes me ten years to finish. Having let myself off the hook, I felt better and decided to do some prep work. I selected the next 30 blocks I want to make and chose the fabrics. Now I'm ready to cut the blocks when the urge hits me.
