May the force Fourth be with you! Happy Star Wars Day!

So for this force fourth, I thought that I would share the original Clone wars animated series in celebration.

Before the animated movie Star Wars: The Clone Wars and long before the television series of the same name, Cartoon Network produced 25 “micro” episodes to fill in the three-year gap between the prequel films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.

The series begins a few months after the events of Attack of the Clones, which means the war has only begun.

Back when it originally aired, Star Wars: Clone Wars introduced more Jedi masters and knights, who were previously only glimpsed in the prequel films. It also introduced more antagonists to me – Asajj Ventress and General Grievous.

Ventress also appeared in the introductory film of the same name. Greivous also appeared as a major antagonist in the prequel film Revenge of the Sith.

Star Wars: Clone Wars was the first animated series to introduce the events of the Clone wars, but it is rarely mentioned since the popular and more in-depth Star Wars: The Clone Wars aired years later.

I’m a fan of both Clone wars animated series – being a pretty big Star Wars nerd myself! But I will admit that Star Wars: Clone Wars holds a special place in my heart – it actually aired its episodes between the release dates of the prequel films.

But the animation style really worked for me – even though I love the look of the 3D animation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

I really enjoyed it because it was such an event when it actually aired on Cartoon Network – big monthly gaps between the seasons to stretch the very short miniseries to make it last til the release date of Revenge of the Sith.

I loved Star Wars: Clone Wars even though portions of the storyline were not as interesting as its same time period successor’s episodes. Regardless, I am still going to fangirl all over this post with some more screenshots from the first animated series about the Clone wars.

Humongous endeavor, little chance of success… let’s do this!

I should start over, reverse it and flip it! Epic endeavor, assured success… because it has been done before and it shall be done again (specifically by the same hands that typed this).

I am speaking of the first foray into the world of cross stitch for me… or rather the first epically colossal patterned project in cross stitch that I am attempting.

I’ve recently embraced the crafty side of me.

It’s been hidden, marinating for years as I watched my grandma crochet blankets, my aunt make homemade presents with the skills of knitting needles, aida cloth, and a sewing machine, and my mom cross stitch beautiful images as if she were painting.

Recently, I created some gifts for some friends (the besties) with the power of floss, aida cloth, and geekdom.

Tweaking patterns from some amazing cross stitchers, such as Mr X Stitch and Dork Stitch!, I was able to create some amazing gifts for the besties.

We share similar interests including but not limited to Doctor Who and Star Wars. There’s definitely a reason why my lovely blog is called nerdy!

But back to the matter at hand, it is merely a work-in-progress, but I have begun the work on Servo’s Epic Pokemon Pattern Generation I.
