the same thing happens to me too, i find something that i want to make and write it down then i see something else thats more interesting and i do that before i even start the other thing

That makes me feel better. Cheesy

I've been working on updating my list a little.  Ideas keep coming to me and I don't want to forget them before I have a chance to record them somewhere.

I think I might try this crafalong for 2011 but more as a way to keep track of what I actually make than anything else.  Making a list is absolutely pointless for me; I'm always distracted by newer, shinier things.  Smiley  Though I can put one thing on my to-do list - an ocean themed afghan for my niece's birthday in February.  I didn't get it done last year or the year before, maybe this will be the year?  Probably not, but she's years away from university, plenty of time.   Grin
