I'm hoping there will be a new challenge for June? I have finished a lot of stuff with deadlines, so I will actually have time to participate!

I was reading through this topic, and through past challenges to see themes that had already been done, and I must say I really like the idea of a video game/art cross-over - as in, make a representation of a video game in an art style (I'd leave the art style open, so people can just pick one that suits them). Pop art was mentioned in this thread, and I think that would work really well, but of the top of my head I can imagine that Japanese/Chinese style brush & ink paintings would work well, pointilism (cross-stitch is kinda inherently pointilistic), surrealism...

Another idea might be video game animals/animal companions?

You know what might be fun? A music themed challenge. You could do stuff like k.k. Slider, or Epona's Somn. Really anything music related. Just an idea.

A music theme would be cool!

My first suggestion is: 'Forever'.

Thanks for the suggestion! Could you describe what you mean by "forever", please? :)

I guess I meant it as an abstract concept for people to interpret, using videogame imagery. What games or scenes make you think of eternity? What games deal with it as a theme?

I hope that helps! :moog

I was thinking of stitching the "please remember to stay alert" screen...
