Although I'm not together enough to enter challenges, I love seeing the amazing work others come up with and often find inspiration from the subjects that contribute to my projects. I applaud those who can follow instructions and work to a deadline.

A few thoughts for subjects:

Tonal variation: Restrict the palette to a single color, use as many tones and techniques as you like.

Multimedia ATCs: Restrict the canvas to a small size, use any colors and techniques.

3D: Use needlework techniques to sculpt or otherwise form an object with depth.

Kid kits: Put together a simple project and teach needlework to a child. Or someone who just acts like a child.

New materials: Try out nontraditional or unusual supplies. For example, specify that metal or paper must be a main ingredient.

Fun on zero dollars: All items must come out of inventory or be found for nothing.

Copyright violations: Reproduce a pop culture image in needlework.

These can also be paired with specific visual elements. Some themes to consider: Typography, portraiture, science, politics, modern art, demotivational memes. And of course, because this is the Internet - cats!
