My battle & challenge projects are going to seem awfully repetitive in technique... But, I am getting a good supply of "wreckable" t-shirts, which I desperately need because I am horrible at getting stains out of clothes in the wash... And, if a shirt gets totally trashed, I can always make a new one!

I've had a few failed projects lately, too.  And I forgot to take photos of the birthday presents I made for my grandma, which I intended to turn in for a monthly challenge.  Roll Eyes  Sounds like a lot of us are ready for the fresh start August will bring!  Smiley

This may have already been asked but are the games going to continue after September?
I will not be hosting a Fall/Winter/Spring Nerd Games; once my teaching and son's crazy band schedule hits, my time will be more limited.  But anyone is more than welcome to take up the Nerd Games and host them, so there is no confusion, post here if you are interested.  If no one takes up hosting, then the Nerd Games will return next summer. Cool

~*August will be the last month of prompts.  Players will have until Sept. 2nd to turn in their projects.  Awards Ceremony will take place Sept. 4-8, 2013. Grin

Sad  so sorry for the sadness.... Cry

If anyone wants to step up to track and keep score, I would be more than happy to do prompts and badges.

Or if y'all were interested, I could do a simpler nerdyalong by just doing monthly Battle Royales...maybe a few challenges, but not as epic.

I just can't do more then that with teaching, teen busyness (swear my son has to be in all the things!  I am both thrilled and worried about him getting his driver's license in Jan. ...of course that is after marching season), my daughter (who is also discovering she can do all the things too, though limited to art and piano classes...for now), crafting (which I hope to do a bit of holiday crafting), mod duties, and the HPC....and a few swaps thrown into the mix.

Kids totally need to try everything... Grin

I am sure that we can be nerdy on our own with some of your excellent guidance! This has been a fun summer...I am hurrying to complete my assignments before nerdy camp lets out...

That sounds awfully ambitious, Krafty.  I didn't even join the Battle this time.....   Tongue

it's even more ambitious since I decided to use either 22 or 28 count cloth (I forget which) to keep it on the smaller side.  had I used 18 or even 14, it would have ended up being up to 17 inches wide!  and I wanted to join because I love Marvel and DC.  but alas, it was not meant to be.  and it's all my fault.  Embarrassed  oh well.  if it fit the theme, I wonder if I could use it for next month's battle since I'll still be working on it...  Wink  or else I can see if it fits another challenge I haven't done yet.

INTERESTED!!!   Grin Grin Grin Grin

I wouldn't mind HELPING to keep the nerdy goodness flowing, but I know that I have time constraints and inexperience working against me.  Perhaps if there were several of us helping to keep track....?  We could use an Excel spreadsheet in Dropbox that all the nerdy hosts have access to, to make sure that we don't miss anything...

Just a thought.   Huh
