The wait is over, Let Games Begin!
Bear with me while I post about something completely unrelated to fabric. Are you guys as excited for the Hunger Games movie premier as I am? It's seems like everyone is talking about it and I wanted to share my excitement too. About three years ago I picked up Hunger Games and was immediately captivated by the story. The unrealistic and yet very realistic plot, the well developed depth of each character, the thrill ride of one intense moment after another, the tears, and on, and on make Hunger Games and entirely addictive journey. The dystopian setting provides the perfect platform for a very emotionally gripping story. These books are about survival, love, revolution, and the heartache and brutality of war. They're exciting, creative, and absolutely "worth loving".
I hope the movie does the book justice! The preview looks amazing. I'm also pretty excited to see what the hair and makeup artists have dreamed up for the outlandish Capitol citizens. From the picture of the character Effie Trinket below, I'd say they're on the right track. So if you haven't already done so, put down your sewing and schedule an uninterrupted weekend to let yourself indulge in the Games.
"May the odds be ever in your favor!"
