I have joined two stitching groups for 2017.  One is Year of Starts 2017 where I will start a new project on the 17th day of each month which shouldn't be a problem since I have also joined Stitch From Stash 2017.  I have set a budget of $25 per month for stitching needs.  If I don't use that $25 it can be carried forward to the next month.  With a little luck (and determination) I should have $100 to use at the time of the Stitchville Retreat.

I have been going through my stash and pulling out all the projects I already have kitted or partially kitted.  I don't think I'll have any problems finding a new project to start on the 17th of each month and anticipate the only purchasing I'll need to do is for fibers I run out of. These are the projects I have fully kitted:
