1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: Discussion Thread for Nerd Battles on: Today at 01:33:00 PM
Ok I am going to dive in this season. I have a project that I have been working on today and a tutorial to go with it, I assume that I post the tute on the relevant page and then post on the nerd thread.

the other issue I have is what kind of nerd I am, I could be textbook (I am an academic) wordy (ditto, plus a bookwork) but I think I am probably more random than anything!

Yay, welcome!  Any team would be happy to have you join!  And, yes, post the tutorial on the relevant board, and then include a link when you turn in your project for the Nerd Battles.  Make sure to claim Engineering Bonus Points (and any others that apply)!


YAY! I'm so excited about the new season of battles! I'm gonna put my thinkin' cap on and think up some goodies I can make to score team Multimedia some points!

I already have ideas for Native American mythology and East Indian mythology. I love ancient Egypt....so I'm going to have to look up something for that one....there's so much to do <3

Glad you'll be playing in another round, mistress_batty!


I forgot to say I'll captain for Fandom again!  Embarrassed
I'm running over to set it up now.

Thanks for volunteering again, FreakieGeekie!

I think I'm going crazy... I swear you were only allowed 2 big time projects, but I just looked and you're allowed 3. Did this change?!

Nope, it did't change.  There's two Free-Range projects and three Big Times allowed.  It's a lot to keep straight!

Captains, if you want to head over to the Fall thread and grab a spot for your HQ that would be great!

Prompt:  UFO
Team:  Randomizer
Event:  Craftology
Bonus Points:  UFO, +10 scrap/thrift
Project Name:  Snap bag
Brief Description:  I saw an interesting post somewhere about snap bags.  They use metal tape measure strips as a closure.  I found some cheap measuring tapes at a sale and cut them up to try it (because I'm THRIFTY).  It's fun and interesting, but I prefer other closures a lot more.

Prompt:  Big Time 1
Team:  Randomizer
Event:  Fabricology
Bonus Points:  UFO
Project Name:  Scrap rope
Brief Description:  I've been working on this for months.  It is strips of scrap fabric hand twisted into rope.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but since I filled the spool, I figured I was done with this batch.

Prompt:  Big Time 2
Team:  Randomizer
Event:  Yarnology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name:  Fallout X-Stitch
Brief Description:  My s/o sent me a screen shot with a large Vault Boy made of lights.  I figured I could turn it into a cross stitch pretty easily.  (I think I was supposed to get that hint, since it came with the phrase, "it's like a pattern."  Cheesy )  Anyway, I charted and stitched it over the course of a couple days and a lot of streaming video.  I think it turned out okay.  Since I was following the kind of pixelated image, it's not as cute as if I had just made up a pattern of Vault Boy, but my s/o likes it.

Prompt:  Big Time 3
Team:  Randomizer
Event:  Yarnology
Bonus Points:  UFO
Project Name:  Scarf
Brief Description:  Ugh, this scarf!  I started it as a gift last year and I just finished it on Friday.  It's not a yarn I usually use, and it was fussier than I expected.  I stitched the ends together so it is infinity style.
