Its starts today!  When I got home last night I realized I have a project that'll fit into Red/Blue.  It doesn't have to be completely red does it?  I'm working on a bag for one of my teacher friends who's not coming back next year but its shades of red and black.  *hoping it'll fit*

Pinkleo - FEEL BETTER!  Enjoy your earl grey and star trek!

I think I'm going to end up going Ninja for our summer games.  Because I still love the idea of my geekdom being music.  Maybe I can entice someone else to join me?  Meh - either way.  Its gonna be fun!  Cheesy

Holy Freaking Crap!!  I LOOOOOOVE this idea and I reeeeeeaaaally need a decent sewing machine cover!  Can I copy this rocking idea?  I have absolutely NO Teesha Moore patches, so I will have to make them ALL myself, but I think this would be ♫fabulous♫!!!!

Steal away! The idea was given to me in the TM Stitchalong thread...which goes to show how long I've been wanting to do this for! Hopefully a TM Patch swap is going on soon...you should join to help get you started!

LOVE the Nerdy Ladies idea!! I'm sure you'll get more members!

Feel better pinkleo!! We need our fearless leader! Wink

 I also LOVE the Nerdy Ladies idea. If we have Fall Session I will have to try my hand at that Team if I get all Monstered out.  Wink

Because I still love the idea of my geekdom being music. 

I hope to craft at least one music crossover, so you won't be alone in your musicness.  Smiley

Research Proposals Added: Abbeeroad, craftADDchick, Ludi, and Smeddley.  Post or PM if I missed you. Grin
--Transporter to Summer Nerd Games Research Projects--

I'm in! Solo style. I love miyazaki, who, pc gaming...
Added you to the Ninjas Cool ...love your Geekdom...my daughter is fanatical about Miyazaki

I am getting my husband involved, talking ideas through with him etc, so that makes it more fun for me.
YAY for hubbys!  It is much more fun with my family involved....I've got my hubby, kiddos, and mom all interested in the games. Grin

pinkleo, I loved your zombie haiku!  It's so fun how you "hide" all these fun little things in your posts.... Cheesy
awwwwww...you are so sweet! Kiss

OMG!!  Last night the most obvious idea for prime numbers came to my head and its so totally me and fits right into my geekdom, its just so obvious!  You were right pinkleo!!
YAY!!!  Way to go!  I knew you could do it! Grin

I have a WIP for the hoop-along that fits my geekiness team theme; can I count that in the games?
Check the May's Randomizer Challenge. Cool  It's all about WIPs!

I have a WIP that's for a show but that show also has a game so would it count for both?
If you are meaning, would it fit your Geekdom, then yes.

....I wrote them down so I wouldn't forget what they were... Smiley
Oh, woman after my heart....I write down all my ideas, because if I don't, I forget without fail.  In fact, I have notebooks for swaps, craftalongs, and general crafty ideas. Grin

Aww, PinkLeo, hope you're feeling better soon!
Kiss Thank you!  I'm feeling more human and less sore today...but my mom is coming over to make sure I don't overdo today. Smiley

Then I'll join Team Commercial Free All-Stars...how do I join? Do I need to pm team captain or anything.
Added you to Team Commercial Free All-Stars Grin

I've been stalking this thread since the beginning, and I've decided that even though I probably won't get much done until uni break, I'd like to give it a go! Some of my IRL friends and I want to make up Team "Nerdy Ladies" - we'll be crafting projects inspired by our favourite female characters. @Pinkleo I hope that's not too broad? Let me know if it is! ^_^
Oh MY!  Great Geekdom! Grin  Since you are focusing on one aspect, the female stars,I'm going to say...
Welcome Team Nerdy Ladies! Grin

@lightninglisa my liege, I offer my crafting skills in service of team 'Nerdy Ladies'.
Let's get crafting! Cheesy
Added you to Team Nerdy Ladies

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

Thank you! Kiss  And Earl Grey + Star Trek always does the trick. Cool

Let me know if you want to switch to Ninja, but the Games are really just beginning so maybe others will join you.  I will say, I'm a huge fan of your Geekdom! Grin

Feel better pinkleo!! We need our fearless leader! Wink
Kiss Thank you! Kiss

Joining in!

I want to be a Ninja, and my Geekdom is Japan.

I won't be avaiable all summer, so I can't open a team for it, but I hope I'll see more Ninjas of this Geekdom, and lots of crafts.

And there are two Research Projects I have in mind this summer:

Project Name: Crochet summer dress
Team/Ninja: Ninja (Japan)
Brief Description: I have two crochet summer dress ideas that I've been eyeing for a while now. I will either make a TARDIS themed dress from granny squares, or a Kamen Rider Themed Dress in whatever crocheting technique is allowing me to make it in smaller units that I can assemble.
I will have to make the pattern for both dresses and as they're prototypes, they're going to give me a lot of trouble, but I've been wanting a crochet dress for a long time and if I can break it down into smaller parts to make, I think I can do it.
Material will be cotton or cotton blend.

Project Name: Pacman ghost afghan
Team/Ninja: Ninja (Japan)
Brief Description: I love pixel graphic afghans, and want to crochet the red pacman ghost from granny squares for my couch.
Cotton yarn.

And I have a monthly challenge project planned out for Red&Blue, and I have so many WIPs to choose from - can we enter more than one in the Challenge?

Glad to join, and happy to start crafting!

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

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
