That would be a good idea. That would be a good encouragement to finish these things too :P

A thread like that is something I have thought about before, consider it done. :)

Hello, new member here! Just started to get interested in the Challenges posted here.

LOVE the idea of lesser known Mythological creatures, one of my personal favs being the Nightmare horse.

One suggestion I have for a monthly challenge, how about a Song theme? I noticed somebody had posted the song Ballad of The Wind Fish from Link's Awakening and haven't seen much else like it around.

How about an Andy Warhol character challenge?

While I'm obsessed with it, something D&D related!!!
Perhaps a Nintendo/d&d mash up. Like Mario as an elf, Toad as a halfling.

I love the Andy Warhol idea - maybe change it to a pop art type challenge? Although I'm assuming you mean the four portrait color altering thing. Which just sounds interesting. I'd get behind that.


Although I was wondering if there's been a form challenge as well as a flat stitching one? Like a biscornu or a puffy satchel? (The kind you stick pot pourri in.)

Yes, I was referring to the soup can type thingy but pop art, in general, would probably work. :D

I don't think there has been one specifically for this but these things are always welcome in other challenges! :)

This might be a bit too specific, but how about old Nintendo 64 games?

I do have a few things I'd love to do for the Banjo-Kazzoie games as well as Mariokart & the paintings from Super Mario 64

Would anyone be interested in doing a stitch a long for April and May? I'm thinking something like the Sampler SAL we did in 2013. Any thoughts?
