*** Ding Ding Ding ***
Did you hear that? We've just hit 200 projects!
Project number 200 belongs to gozer, who is now well prepared for the apocalypse by honing her shirt making skills (just don't ask her for socks yet).

By the way, what would the plural of apocalypse be?

what an active season we are having, so much creativity, and such great ideas.
All the February prompts are already represented, and the older prompts keep racking in numbers.
I guess we are a festive bunch, as the most crafted prompt is Festivus, with 17 projects so far, followed by the now closed December Flash Mob prompt, with 15 projects.
We have a few members who seem to be close to running out of prompts before we run out of days these month, among them Ludi of team Wordy and BadWold314 of team Textbook. Do you girls ever sleep?

The current totals are as follows:

A funny thing happened. As I was busy tracking the projects, I got totally lost, can you help me find myself?
(the image is all active players, sized according to the number of projects the entered. I just found it funny that when I first generated this image, I couldn't find my name. I guess I should get back to crafting)

Keep the awesome crafts rolling Smiley

We're at 130 projects already, with awesome stuff all around (hopefully I'll get a new report up this weekend).

Team Fandom finally reporting in *was busy chasing dragon babies and other fandomly stuff*
Battle/Challenge:  January Battle:  The Sea
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: none
Project Name:Seashell necklace
Brief Description:
This was tough challenge, I'm a sci-fi kid. If you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, the only answer I had was astronaut. But, I was born and lived most of my life next to the sea, and I love sailing and the beach. It's like that question silly people sometimes ask kids, "who do you love more, mom or dad?" (don't be surprised if the answer is pizza).
Anyway, while pondering this dilemma, I remembered I had some seashells I collected from the first few times I went to the beach with my daughter. After digging them up and browsing through my stash, my mom's stash and finally settling on my brother's chainmaille stash and a set of pliers borrowed from my dad, I managed to figure something out. I made 2 simple pendants, one smaller for my kid and one a bit bigger for me. But, putting a jump ring on a seashell does not take half an hour (can't count the hours spent digging in boxes and various craft locations around the house as part of the project), so I decided to make a necklace. And here it is.

That's such a clever idea, I love it.
You also managed to combine two things I really like, Mario and Lego. I'm sure your brother loved it, I know I do Smiley

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate! Happy random week day for anyone who doesn't Smiley
This it Tanath, with a special edition of Project Tracks, coming to you live from the holy land!

The first month of the winter round of the games is almost over, and what a month it was so far!
It took less than three days for the first project to be posted, a lovely stencilled shirt by bunny1kenobiof team Wordy. Projects started flowing in and the count currently stands at 43 projects, representing 4 teams (team Fandom, where are you? Wait, I'm on team Fandom, better get moving).

I think it isn't much of a surprise that the most popular prompts in this month that leads to Christmas were the December Flash Mob prompt (with 10 projects) and Festivus (with 8 projects), followed by the Glitter prompt (with 6 projects so far, but I'm sure we'll see more, because once the glitter is out, it just sticks to everything).

We have 12 already active players, with 43 projects between them, and I'm sure there are more of us who are still working on their projects. So, keep an eye on the game threads for more action, or hop over to the Pinterest board to get an overdose of eye candy.

And most important, stay safe and warm. I know I've asked you guys to send me some winter, but the storm we had a week ago was super crazy, like we haven't had in ages, and I hear a lot of places have crazy weather as well.
Keep on crafting everyone Smiley

Fall Nerd Battles 2013 Final Roundup

Ok, Fall is definitely over, so heres a sum up of all we had during this wonderful round.
During this round of the game the thread never rested, weve seen 178 entries, from 23 crafty nerds.
The players with the most projects completed are Eiseldora of team Multimedia and LovelyMiss of team Randomizer, with 22 projects each. They both completed all the prompts including the labor intensive Research project (is there a badge for that? Thats certainly something to brag about). They are closely followed by BadWolf314 of team Textbook, with 21 projects (all the regular prompts). LovelyMiss is also the player who managed to gather the highest number of points, 570. Thats a whole lot of points.
But, no matter how many projects or points any of us got this round, I think we are all winners Smiley

Some more numbers and statistics below.

The most popular prompt was the Starfleet Uniforms, with 17 uniforms submitted, enough for a small crew (now we just need a spaceship).
Tied for second place are the Periodic Table and Conventions prompts, with 13 projects each.
Im glad to note that no prompt was neglected and people posted awesome things for all of them.

bunny - the image on the shirt is very sharp, what technique did you use?

Hey, thanks for the winter everybody! Such a great group, all I had to do was ask Smiley
(you'll probably laugh at what we call winter around here)
When are we ending the fall games and starting the winter round? I'll make a nice big summary with lots of numbers for those of us who like such things. But don't worry, I'll try to keep it colorful, for the crayon lovers among us.
