Stashwatch

sw18

Stashwatch 2017 wasn’t as successful as I had planned, so for 2018, I’m aiming for Progress, rather than Perfection, in keeping my fabric under control.

I’m going to try and be more discerning in my acquisition of fabrics, rather than setting myself unrealistic goals on not buying any. I’m also going to be more proactive in swapping/donating fabric where I know I won’t use up the remainders, or where I’m no longer feeling the love.

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