I was thinking it would be good to have a "brainstorming" thread for stitchalongs because I for one don't want to start a stitchalong, only to end up stitching by myself. So just post any ideas you have for stitchalongs that you would be interested in! And remember...even if right now you are completly loaded with projects, work, school, etc., you can always join later. Now let's put on our thinking caps, ladies and gentleman!  Smiley

I have a good one...Comic/ cartoon/ coloring book stitchalongs!

These days i've been throwing around ideas for some new cool designs and i seem to have come up with a few nifty ones via cartoon network and, if you can belive it, Archie comics.

I'm just about done with a Jughead pillowcase and i'm thinking maybe something from Mucha Lucha as soon as i can.

I'd be up for that! I would do the coloring book one. I use to have a great site for free coloring book pages bookmarked, but I can't seem to find it.  Sad

A few ideas of my own...
...libarian (a popular suggestion for Sublime Stitching patterns so we may be able to get more particpants, and I think this could be really fun)
...decades (there could be a few decade stitchalongs goings at once, one devoted to the classic looks of the 40s to the crazy patterns of the 70s)

Let's keep the ideas coming!

An ongoing "seasons" stitchalong might work. We can start with all spring related things, baby birds/animals, flower buds, anything green, etc. and post under one thread and start a new post for summer, fall and winter.
Has this already been done?

I started a library/librarian stitchalong. I know the point of this thread is so that we can see if other people are interested in it, but I got excited and already drew a pattern! *smiles guiltily*

I like the cartoon one.  I've been dying to do the Aqua Teen cross stitch patterns that someone posted recently for my husband.  My only problem is I have NO idea what to put them on.  I've thought about a towel, or just doing a small long pillow...but I don't know.  I just realized I don't even know how big the patterns are.

Oh, and I usually always end up doing the stitchalongs, it just tends to be months after they're originally posted  Wink  Then I'll forget to post for a couple more weeks, etc. 

My husband's been on a Robot Chicken kick recently too, I might have to embroider a shirt for him.

I really like the decades idea!  I'd be in for some crazy 60's and 70's psychadelic patterns!  I also like embroidery based on different cultures; I posted a japanese-inspired (kind of) pillow a while ago http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69691.0
and I want to do something Indian looking (but I don't know what exactly just yet though) and I have a bunch of Honduran embroidery patterns my friend Reina drew for me...

I really like the seasonal patterns that dyabolica posted. I'm working on two sets for Christmas gifts. I'll make them into wall hangings.

I would love to see other sets like that.  Any design.

But with all the patterns posted at once so that you have them and can start with the one you fell comforable with.

I've never done pop art needlework, but it sounds like it would be alot of fun.  I'd be interested in doing a stitch along for it.  If you make one within the next week, I'll be out of town so I won't be able to join it or anything, though.

Ooh - lreally like the pop art idea too.  I was mildly obsessed with all things Warhol during high school and have never really gotten over it.  I love the whole pop art movement, but never thought about doing pop art inspired needlework.  Good one!!!

So I literally just started embroidering, but it's so much fun and I'm very enthused.  And I was browsing an archive of line art by the Victorian artist Aubrey Beardsley, and I thought that they would make great embroidery patterns!

I'm going to do this regardless (though it might take me months and months), but if anyone's interested in a Victorian-themed stitchalong, I think it would be awesome to see what other people might come up with.  Or just an "art" theme in general?  Take a piece of art and turn it into embroidery?

The piece I'm contemplating is a pillow with a simplified version of La Beale Isoud at Joyous Gard.  I think her hair is so awesome, and the way her clothes drape -- lovely!  I love knights  and ladies and King Arthur stories, and I love Beardsley's art, so this is definitely a piece after my own heart!  Smiley
