That has to be "out, damned spot" :D

I remember having to memorize The Seven Ages of Man as a freshman in high school (holy crap was that a long time ago!). I dislike Shakespeare, but when this challenge came up, The Seven Ages of Man is the first thing that popped into my head. It took longer for what to stitch came to mind. I like the first to lines of TSAoM, "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women are merely players" and had the idea to do a console with a controller. Here it is! I decided to go with the color choices KG picked out for fun and to laugh at how off they were. The PS2 was my first favorite console, that's why I chose it. Changed the quote a little to fit. Chose red fabric because many stage curtains are red.

I know it doesn't count, but I wanted to post it here anyway. This fought getting stitched on time so hard!

Flash so you can see some of the horrible color choices and no flash to see the stitching for itself.

And the original sprites for what the colors should have been.

Yes, it'll be up this Friday (10th Feb.)
I'm sorry for the lateness of putting up the challenge, I have had a lot of personal stuff going on and just clean forgot to put it up on the 1st! It'll run until the end of March though so don't worry about having only a short time to make something :D
