I have two (or more) of these cards. I would love to trade them for cards I’m missing! Comment or send me a tweet @sosostris if you’d like to exchange cards! Remember these cards are Japanese. I am 90% certain they will work with the US game, but can’t test until it’s released.

Happy Home Designer Portfolio #2

My first public works project in Happy Home Designer was a new school. I only had a few guidelines to follow:

  • 1 teacher’s desk
  • 4 student desks
  • 4 student chairs

Afterward the Tom Nook housing staff came over to break in the chairs and fall asleep during the lectures.

I finished designing the school!

Then we held a brief party where I mistimed my picture taking. Some things never change. And then the actual students came in to learn…stuff.

I caught my pop on film at least.

Carrie’s House

My next project was to design the inside and the outside of a house. I freaked out because I thought Carrie/マミッ was Kitt, but she’s not. I still don’t really like kangaroos, but I still tried to give her what she wanted, which was a home and garden where kids could play.

I love finishing projects.

Muffy’s House

The next plot I designed was for Muffy/フリル the sheep. I have her in my Japanese New Leaf town (かせん) and I was excited to give her the goth-lolita home of her dreams.

Caroline’s House

This is my favorite house to date just because it was fun and silly to do. Caroline/キャロライン came to me wanting an “American Country” house and I don’t think she quite expected what she got.

Public Work: The Store

Isabelle let me choose between a hospital, restaurant, or store. I thought the store might be the easiest and after a bit of help from viewers on twitch I went with a candy store theme. I feel like I could have made a better store, but it’ll do for now. I didn’t get many good pics of it either :/

Bad angle. I think Digby is tending the register.

Happy Home Designer Portfolio #1

Today I started my career as an interior decorator in Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer. I downloaded the game to my Japanese 3DS and received the theme pictured below. I like to think of the theme as a consolation prize since the physical game comes with 1 amiibo card.

I streamed my first encounter with the game. If you’d like to watch subsequent streams you can follow me at http://www.twitch.tv/V3lla/. I will put past streams up on youtube (assuming I don’t anger Nintendo) https://www.youtube.com/user/s0sostris/videos

Here are some pictures of the happy homes I designed today. Everyone seemed to like their houses.

Lottie’s House

The first client was none other than Lottie/タクミ. I didn’t know the room was for her to begin with, she just said it was a female client who liked lovely things.

Goldie’s House

My next client was Goldie/キャラメル. She said she wanted to be surrounded by books, so I crammed as much reading material into her house as possible.

She likes coffee! I knew I should have given her a coffee cup.

Lopez’s House

The next customer I had to go outside and meet. It was Lopez/トムソン and he wanted an urban house.

Jeremiah’s House

Jeremiah/クワトロ wanted to be surrounded by blue, so I did my best. I decided the blue wall was a little heavy handed and chose the blue tile wall and floor instead.

Ribbot’s House

I had to choose between Ribbot and a squirrel. Ordinarily I would pick squirrels over frogs, but I have a soft spot for this mechanical frog. He wanted robotic furniture. No shock there.

I don't think he knows what to make of the kettle or the toaster. Obviously he's not acquainted with Talkie Toaster from Red Dwarf.

And that’s what my first two hours of gameplay consisted of. Tomorrow (in game) Isabelle is going to be there. I can’t wait to see what she brings to the game!

Still as cute as ever Izzy-chan.

Work Completed Wednesday! The Runaway

I know I sort of stopped posting updates. My bad. I tried desperately to finish this cross stitch before leaving for vacation, but the rainbow thwarted me. OMG that blending filament.

It snags and one strand bunches up. Sometimes you can get it straightened out and keep going and sometimes it’s game over, time to start with a new thread.

This is why I hate the filament. It snags something awful.

Once I got back from vacation it took a while to get started because I was sick. I tried stitching with a runny nose and a fever…and then had to rip out a bunch of stitches. But I’m mostly better and yesterday I buckled down and finished the last bit of the rainbow. Today I attached the beads. And at last, The Runaway is done!

I am no closer to figuring out what I plan to do with the other carousel horses I want to stitch. But honestly I think I may just stitch them as intended instead of trying to tie them so closely with this one. The same theme (the horses) is enough I think.

The pictures may look a little washed out. The piece is stitched on light blue almost grayish cloth and it doesn’t photograph well. It just ends up looking like it should be white in the picture, but it’s dirty. It’s not!

WIP Wednesday 6: The Runaway

I missed a week. It happens. I’m still here. The cross stitch is still slowly coming together. I got ultra tired of the blue sky. You can tell because I even finished the text, something I swore I would leave to the very end. I just have a tiny smidgen of blue to finish. I’m sure I’ll buckle down and do it in the next few days.

I also finished *all* of the backstitch on the horse.

I’m a little worried about the text coming undone. No one tells you how to anchor backstitch with nothing to run your thread under I mostly left a long tail and let it get tangled up in the stitching and wound the end several times under the last letter. Hopefully that works.

I’m trying to finish this before I leave for vacation July 8. I don’t know if that’s feasible because the rainbow beneath will probably be quite a bit of work as well. I would like to finish it before August because I’d like to get it framed and hang it up for my birthday. Happy birthday to me. NO MORE BLUE. LOL.
