My tastes are widely eclectic, but tend toward intricate and time-heavy works that swamp you in boredom if you try to work only on one at a time until a finish.
This page is my personal organization page. It provides a map that lets me work on current projects, keep UFOs in mind, and pull in the NETY sets that I have on a regular basis. With this system, I am not bogged down with boredom, nor frozen with an overwhelming goal (to finish all those kits I collected over the decades my children were growing, but also enjoy current interests).
Some people would be frozen by these lists. I do not use them as TO-DO lists that I have to check off in a given period of time, so there's no stress to me. They are simply organizers, from which I draw a UFO list each year to check off from, and look for guidance to each time I am ready to pull a "new" project into the BOM lineup or the Priority Quilt field.
My quilting work is generally organized into priority work Mon-Fri, with "putz-around" options for when I wake too early to use the longarm (it wakes people where it is). After dinner, Scott and I like to relax with a TV show together, and that is hand stitching time for me. On the weekends, if we're not doing something else, I step away from the priority task and work on community service and/or whichever BOM is up that week. [For those of you who like to find out how other people tick.] :)

Down the Rabbit Hole
Wind in the Whiskers
Beary Colorful at Dione's
Sue Garman's Nutcrackers
Esther Aliu's Queen's Garden
These are intended as very long term hand work projects for quiet moments in the evenings while I watch a show with Scott. They take so long to finish each block, I have the two for rotation against boredom.
