Good for you!

When you get out from under some of the obligation burden, I bet you'll feel a whole lot better emotionally. Now you just need some time to heal from your surgeries and to grieve for your dog.

Sometimes knitting can be good therapy, but not when it has deadlines and expectations attached to it! Ick!

It's clear that you are a generous, giving, kind person. I expect that everyone on the list knows this and that you wouldn't just decide not to do as you've promised. The most important thing right now is your recovery. Things happen that we don't have control over.

I recall one Christmas that my MIL had intended to give items she'd sewn as gifts. For some reason she couldn't get them done before Christmas. There were packages of fabric and an IOU for the finished item. All were done, just not by Christmas. Life's too short to stress over things more than we must.

I wish you a speedy recovery.

ETA My guess: Others will cut you more slack than you do for yourself.
