I claim thanate for non-seasonal holidays. Plan is to make a birthday gift (collage) for a family member.

It will take two days.


I claim FROM LOUSY TO WONDERFUL from @GabeTheQuacker. Within the next 5 days I’ll bind the mixed media book I’ve been preparing, which is transforming lousy old photos of largely lousy memories into something new and, by comparison, wonderful. In the process, perhaps not entirely by chance, the stories and memories themselves are transforming into something better.

My challenge for you: INSPIRED BY A FELLOW LETTUCE-CRAFTER (or Craftsterer, if they aren’t yet on this site)


Grrl, I do that one every day. I’m going to make @pottermouth’s amazing snail game quilt but I’m waiting on some fabric so I give myself a month. I do promise to post something from this theme sooner though, since I am forever inspired by all y’all!

I know, I know. It’s, like, the hardest craft ever. You can do it! I believe in you :orange_heart:


Oooh! Pick me, pick me!! :raising_hand_woman: I have something in mind to make for myself! I’ll give myself 3 days to stencil myself a tee!

My challenge is HEROES. Mythical heroes, literary or religious heroes, superheroes, first responders/medical staff, personal heroes…


I’ll take heroes from @Bunny1kenobi ! I’m going to try to make masks for the heroes working in the hospitals. I’m a little intimidated so I’ll give myself a week.

My challenge is GAMES!


I claim GAMES (yay, I love 'em) from roler.

I don’t yet know what I will make but I have made games before so I look forward to it.

My goal is to complete it in 3 days.

My challenge is super old stash. I am going to do this one myself. It doesn’t matter what you make, just get into the pile of ancient treasures, fish one out and do something with it!

My challenge is stretch yourself!


I’ll take Stretch Yourself!

I’m gonna try a new pattern today and that always intimidates me.

My challenge is AMABIE:

It’s a legendary Japanese creature that prophecies an epidemic, and people in Japan have been making art of it and sharing it as a charm against the virus.

" amabie appeared in Higo Province (Kumamoto Prefecture) according to legend, around the middle of the fourth month, in the year Kōka-3 (mid-May, 1846) in the Edo era. A glowing object had been spotted in the sea, almost on a nightly basis. The town’s official went to the coast to investigate, and witnessed the amabie . According to the sketch made by this official, it had long hair, a mouth like bird’s bill, was covered in scales from the neck down, and three-legged. Addressing the official, it identified itself as an amabie and told him that it lived in the open sea. It went on to deliver a prophecy: “Good harvest will continue for six years from the current year;[a] if disease spreads, show a picture of me to those who fall ill and they will be cured.” Afterward, it returned to the sea. The story was printed in the kawaraban [ja] (woodblock-printed bulletins), where its portrait was printed, and this is how the story disseminated in Japan.[1][2] "

Here are some examples people have been making!

If this is too weird and specific, just do another MONSTER for the April monster mash!!
