Challenge Chain 2021 THEMES, for fun and to get us over the corona slump!

It’s a new year and a new Challenge Chain!

I’m going to start the chain with the topic at the end of this post.
The person to claim that topic will reply with:
1 a little description of the intended craft
2 a guesstimate of how long it’ll take to complete
3 a new challenge for the next person to choose

This thread is reserved for challenges
—> Completed crafts and chat go HERE <— remember to tag the challenger so they can see what they helped inspire.

***Even if you aren’t the first to choose a theme, you’re welcome to make something anyhow to post and tag the challenger with.
***Remember this is just for fun, to help us make quick and simple little prompts to get out of the corona funk that so many of us are experiencing.
***If a theme stalls more than a couple of days, the challenger can post a different idea. Anybody is welcome to repost an unclaimed theme later on, they are all good ideas!
***There is no limit on claiming, but please no back to back claiming, give everyone a chance to play.

Your challenge should you chose to accept it is

My challenge is BIRD or JUNGLE ANIMAL


I think I’ve stalled the thread … always my fear when making a claim :confused:

My new challenge is … USE YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR


I was tempted to choose your bird theme, I have a wip that would fit. I’m home sick from work and a bit meh so sitting around crocheting is all I can really manage for more than a few mins though. It’s a good theme, I would come back round with it again another time.

I claim favorite colour from @Homerof2. It will fit something already on my hook. Bird would have been fun too, but my internet was spotty last week.

How about texture?

My challenge is leaves!

Stalled on “leaves”, hmm…

How about “books”? Reading them seems to be getting a lot of people through this corona slump, anybody doing a related crafty thing?

(I admit I forgot this thread was here…)I’ll take book(s)-- there’s a book I got decades ago to hollow out taking up space on my coffee table.

Next challenge: glow-in-the-dark.

Oooh, I wanna join! I’ll take glow-in-the-dark because I have some thread I don’t think I’ve used yet!
