Stashwatch 2016 was highly effective in keeping my fabric under control, so I’m renewing it for 2017, with updated goals.

While I’m not specifically aiming to reduce my stash to a specific figure, there’s plenty in there for now, and I will be on a stash diet until I’ve used some of it up.

This table should help me keep an eye on Works in Progress (in Bold), which can sometimes get accidentally forgotten!
