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

Monthly Update for Hoopla Theme:

COLOR!

Details:
Pick a pattern of your choice and brighten that sucker up with either tinting, fill in stitch or some other way to show off all the color. Try stumpwork for your fill or maybe watercolors or crayons for tinting. It is totally up to you, but your piece must be full of color! It's March and spring is right around the corner, so shake the greys and bring some color into the scene.


You have until March 31, 2015 to be eligible for random drawing

Prize:
20.00 gift certificate to 123 Cross Stitch


Post your hooplas on this thread

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).
