Stitching Games 2013
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.
To join the game, please post a picture of your unstitched game canvas in the month you are joining the game. You may join the game at any time. Please also make sure you're friends with Ruth and K.B. If you're not, just add us. This way there shouldn't be problems with using Stitcherie's mail.
This will be a game of associations. So bring your imagination and your sense of humor. 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.
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.
By the end of the month, you will post a picture of what you stitched and an explanation of how you arrived at that decision (both are necessary to be eligible for that month's prize). Please clearly label your post by month or clue. On the first of the next month, I will close the discussion and compile a list for the random drawing. The staff at Bedecked & Beadazzled will do the actual drawing.
The last clue will be posted in October. And the last random prize will be awarded in early November.
November is your month to finish up your canvas and post it. Please don't try to post it early because the discussion won't open until November 1. Only canvases that have incorporated all 10 clues are eligible for the viewer's choice award. If you joined late, you will need to go back and do the clues you missed. Please clearly label your image with your name and Stitching Games 2013. Voting on these canvases will be open from December 1 to 15.
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 2013.
Ruth designed a badge for us. I'm not entirely sure how these work (there I go asking for things I'm ignorant about), so I don't know if you can download the file or not. But give it a try. File at bottom of page. If you can, please post it proudly on your blog.
