Block number/name: I-4 “Stability”
Date completed: December 30, 2008
Number of pieces: 25
Notes on block: Being random is starting to take a lot of effort. The fabric I initially cut for this block ended up being the exact same shade/tone of green as J-4. Fortunately, I realized this before I started sewing. But I still had to re-cut. And though this fabric was not my first choice, I do like the bright and happy results.
Keith has been playing a video game lately that I’ve really been enjoying. It is a strategy game called Valkyria Chronicles. Though it is taking place in a fictional universe, its storyline seems to echo events of World War II Europe, including the German invasion of Czechoslovakia, the Holocaust, and more. The story is really well-written, includes great characters, and offers many positive messages regarding peace, tolerance, teamwork, and more. The animation is beautiful. It really is like watching a movie. I’m loving it (though it is quite distracting while stitching). I can't really say much about the game aspect since I've only been watching and not playing, but Keith seems to be enjoying it.
