This is a description of the games. The rules will be posted in a separate discussion.
To participate, you will need an unstitched canvas--hand-painted or line-drawn. You may paint/draw your own. Your canvas should be able to accommodate 10 treatments. You need to be able to take pictures and post them on Stitcherie. Prize winners will need to share their mailing addresses with the game's moderators.
This will be a game of associations. So bring your imagination and your sense of humor. On the first of the month, I'll post a clue in the discussion for that month. Most likely it will be a word or phrase, but it might be an image. You will interpret that clue and apply that interpretation to your stitching. For example, if the clue were Mickey Mouse, you might immediately think black, red, yellow, white for his colors and stitch areas that are those colors. Or you might think of circles because of his ears and stitch any round areas or use round stitches. Or maybe your brain will take your further afield into eww-mouse! territory, and you'll stitch cats to get rid of the mice. Or maybe you will link Mickey to Minnie to Goofy ... you get the idea. I expect we'll be amazed by each other's thoughts. I hope we'll have lots of laughs.
There will be 10 randomly drawn clues--one for each month January to October. There will be a randomly drawn participation award for each month January to October. Participants who post their finished game canvases between November 1 and 30 will be eligible for the viewer's choice award. Voting will happen in December.
Ruth (Schmuff) and I (K.B.) will be the game moderators. We are eligible to stitch along, but not to win any prizes.
The games will begin New Year's Day 2014.
