Procrastination - thy name is embarrassment.
Four years ago I participated in a block swap using designs from this book (the favorite book in my library). The blocks languished in the cupboard until two years ago when I finally decided to assemble them. I chose to make them into pillow covers rather than a quilt. I found a fabric in my stash that made a perfect back and loved the finished piece.
So what's the problem, you ask. I only completed one of the two pillows. This week when I was unpacking Christmas decorations, there was the second top - neatly folded with its backing fabric. Two more years of waiting have finally ended. A second pillow has been born.
Balance has been restored to the couch and I can enjoy the fruits of my friends' labor rather than the guilt of putting off a job that took under an hour to complete.
I did dangle a little carrot for inspiration.
Now I will allow myself the pleasure of hand-stitching the binding down on Old St. Nick.
