I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Monthly Update for Hoopla Theme:

CIRCUS, CARNIVAL, SIDESHOW

Details:
Let's all quit our jobs, run away and join the circus. We can become the amazing stitching artists on the flying trapeze. Okay, so maybe we can't join the circus, but we can stitch it up. This month's theme is all about the midway: Circus, Carnival and Sideshow. Do you have a favorite sideshow performer? Why not pay homage to them by stitching up their portrait. Maybe you are more into the foods at the carnivals (everyone loves fried dough!), stitch it up and that way you won't worry about the calories. Whatever you love about the circus, carnival or sideshow-put it in hoopla form for the entire world to see!



You have until June 1, 2015 to be eligible for random drawing

Prize:
25.00 Etsy Card

I think if you had a theme, it would motivate me to do more stitching...I need a reason to stitch since I am still a beginner! Cheesy

I think a quarter is too long unless it is a huge project, which I would probably lose interest in really quickly...I like the monthly challenges the best...

Maybe, just maybe, I'd actually give it a go. I'd for sure watch the thread to see what everyone else was making!

Ooh! This sounds awesome! I agree that monthly would probably be best unless it's a super tedious type project.

I think it would be a great idea!
I would need a facebook reminder when they start, but I would be completely up for it.

It would be for you. If it were a swap, we would have to move it to the swap board and follow the Craftster guidelines on swapping.

If you didn't want one for yourself, you could always do a gift or a private swap.  Smiley

YES! Grin  I need the motivation; my hoopla wall is extremely bare.

Oh, and I'm for doing some selfish stitching (I never seem to make myself something).
