I don't make lists of projects very often. Christmas crafting time I do. I also have a new OCD candidate --my list of gotta haves for my Bernina 380 ---- made a list of what is available, marked off what came with the machine and have been marking off as I purchase more. LOL I think everyone has a style they develop through experience. We may not write it down, but generally we have some sort of method in the madness to which projects we are working on.
