Since Abbeeroad has given me her blessing to copy her ROCKING AWESOME sewing machine cover idea, I will be declaring a research project very soon!  But I have the IYP to finish up and a couple other irons in the fire to worry about before I declare.  Not ready quite yet for that clock to begin ticking!   Wink

Can the red/blue challenge be shades of red?  Like would pink count?

I absolutely love love quilts, do you think an afghan is a fair trade for a quilt? I'd love to swap!

Hi Ruby Copperhead!  Added you to Ninjas & Research Proposal Logged...you do have to narrow it down to one Research Project (for the Games you can only do one at a time).  I went ahead and listed the Summer Dress as first up (so that your time clock can start ticking), but just post or PM if you want to switch to the Pacman ghost afghan. Grin  Must say I love both your ideas! Cool

Thanks! I need the summer dress more than I need the afghan, so I'm very okay with that choice.

I have a question about the Challenge: Do you get geekdom points for challenge items, too? If I and make something ninja for the challenge, does that give Japan geekdom points for me because ninjas are Japanese?

Then I'll join Team Commercial Free All-Stars

...how do I join? Do I need to pm team captain or anything.

Has too many WIP to finish up... now I'm a little more motivated.


Welcome!  Glad to have you on board.  I can't wait to see what our team comes up with this summer.  These are great challenges to kick off the Games!  Smiley

I'll be declaring my first research project later tonight when I get home from school.  So excited!

I've been following this thread since it started, after being fascinated by the HP craftalong threads. I think I'll have to join now, it looks like so much fun.
I'd like to join team fantasy, having a dragon for a dad and being married to a dragon, I think that makes sense Smiley

Project Name: Dagobah Terrarium
Team: Of Ships & Men
Brief Description: I have a little toy Luke and I wanted to make him his own Dagobah in a bowl. I want to use real plants and have an actual swamp. Miniature, that is.

The first week will be taken up with learning how to make a good terrarium and what plants can survive a wet environment. Several days will be finding all the plants and material. The majority of the time will be crafting the terrarium to house both a land component and a swamp area without creating dirt soup. The finishing touch will be adding Luke (and perhaps a swamp creature... gotta craft it with something that can live in water... more research) and hoping that the plants don't croak.

For Red or Blue challenge, as long as it is mainlyRed or Blue, it will work.

What if the craft has a significant, central, or focal red component, but is not overall mostly red?  Will it work?  (May have to discard two options if it doesn't....)   Huh
I'm trying to make it not so strict...which is why I add the mainly....I would say....
For the Red or Blue Challenge,
If someone looked at your item and then was asked what color it was,
their answer would have to be a Red or Blue.


So let's say I'm making a hat out of this yarn....

...someone would look at it and say it was a red hat.

Make sense?
