If you look in on my blog with any regularity, you know I use it to organize work on my monumental accumulation of UFOs and untouched projects. And I keep track of everything new that I start. I don't want anything to get forgotten under a bed or in closet corners ever again. It may get misplaced in the storage room I have now, but I'll know it's there and needs attention some day!
[Edit] Oh, goodness! People are reading this - I should know better, I'm that way myself if I see "don't do such-and-such." So let me put this post in better context. These are the lists that live on my "Horizons" tab, but they constantly change. I just shared the philosophy I have about them with Clare, so I'll paste it in here: The method I use for my madness can drive some people insane, because it stresses them to see everything right there in print. I suspect that's because it's difficult for some people to operate on the concept of a fluid list meant for ongoing long term forward movement rather than a finite time zone of completion. I made these lists for organization, not for "Finish these immediately! (or even this quarter or year)". I set rotating short-term goals to organize my work time each week, and those are instrumental in keeping my mojo flowing while making forward movement on these lists here. So I consult these about once a month, update them with new stages of work or mark-thru's - but I don't let them rule my quilting life entirely nor stress me out. :D
After 4 years of attacking 49 actual UFOs and over 100 NETYs [these were an accumulation over 25 years, and about a dozen of the UFOs were my cousin's WIPs that I adopted when she died], here is where I stand. Several months were lost in 2012 due to a cross-country move and living in a rental apartment while selling the old house and finding a new home, and 2014 quilting was seriously slowed down while I finished my thesis and Master's degree. I'm hoping 2015 lets me make huge strides forward like 2013 did.
