Stitching Games 2014!


Stitching Games 2014!

 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.

Pat, in order to get credit for your stitching, you need to post your interpretations and pictures in the monthly discussion. Otherwise, you and your canvas aren't eligible to win goodies.

"While strolling down the street arm in arm w/ my hubby, Tom, we seemed to have stepped into a lovely time warp. Spread out before us, was a scene from a Norman Rockwell painting......stars twinkling in the ink blue sky, soft glowing colored lights hung on the roof tops of the houses, and the soft quiet of a midnight snow falling around our cold ears........"

As slippery as the driveway was from snow and sleet, I was totally shocked to hear my hubby take his Harley out of the garage, coast down the driveway and onto the street.  While he was gone, I made 3 recipes of Pizzelles, one each of Chocolate, Anise and Vanilla.  Realizing that each batch takes nearly 2 hours, I had lost track of time, and it was now dark outside.  As I switched on the light to the deck, I could hear him coming up the street and coast back into the garage.  I could have sworn I heard him laughing and talking to himself, as he rinsed the salt off the bike.  Curious as to why he was acting so strangely,  I threw on a sweater and mittens, and snuck out to spy.  He was furiously towel drying the water off the wheel rims.  When he realized that I was standing there with an amused, albeit quizzical, look on my face, he came over w/ a huge grin on his face and planted a quick kiss on my nose!  A little surprised by his "goosey" behavior, I asked him why he was so amused.  With one of those impish little boy grins on his face, he announced, "Welllllll, you know that I put gifts under the tree for you, but I have one really big surprise!"  He held out a little beribboned red envelope, and proudly announced, "WE are taking Samba lessons!"  Now, I am the one laughing and talking to myself!!!!!!P3010022.JPG

Now, am I in for the February competition?

I sure hope so... samba tell me I am learning this game.

I am going to try this again tonight. If I don't figure it out, I am going to go to the Ramba club and do some samba dancing in my new Samba shoes. I finally got it.
