I kind of missed Christmas and New Year’s and the last six months more or less. But believe it or not—I live! I got The Winter 2014 issue of ぴこぷり in the mail last week. It has a lot of cute dresses in it. Many of which are Christmas-themed. There are a couple I may have to make even though the holiday is past.
I chose to copy the party dress pattern submitted by Mikumiku of Chiba prefecture. It would have been great for New Year’s if I had completed it in time, but I think it will be pretty for Valentine’s day too.
Happy New Year! Here’s hoping no psychotic clown sheep land in your town this year!
AM: 83 Bells
Unless you count Pete. I interrupted his morning delivery route. He had already stopped by my house and delivered a terse letter from my mom. Enclosed was a tiki torch. Maybe she’s trying to keep me warm during the winter?
Delivering the morning mail.
I went to check on my town’s environment again. I got the big “isn’t it great!” yell from Shizue and then she gave me something from the “committee” (what committee???) to everyone to commemorate the achievement of the perfect town.
It is none other than a blingy gold watering can. Oh how I love thee gold watering can!
“I got the gold watering can! I can water richly” or something. I think it’s a play on the fact that it’s gold
When you water with it you actually turn in a circle in front of you watering probably up to 9 squares. I say probably because I didn’t test that. I tried to get a good shot showing dripping flowers, but I semi-failed at that.
The 3 flowers in front of me plus the one to the side are wet…timing is difficult.
I hate plastic flowers. That hanging flower basket must be plastic, right? I bought it anyway. I even hung it up in my icicle room which is bigger now and houses all of my ice set.
Ack! I tried for another regular snowman and I got an almost perfect one again. Really really leaning towards a pattern on the ground, but I don’t think it would help me as I’m not sure how many lines big it should be.
whatever, I tried
The island didn’t have anything I needed. I have a large mortgage again so I should probably visit the island a couple times tonight and hunt bugs. Now that I have my perfect town reward I can go on a big spree and rearrange some of the trees in town and maybe put in that flower clock that’s so adorable, but I’m in pre-Christmas freak out mode, so I doubt I’ll be doing anything drastic for the time being. In fact, as a stress relieving measure (wouldn’t you think Animal Crossing would work?) I’m gonna go hunt some monsters in Monster Hunter 3G HD. Great Jaggi beware I have a very big dull hammer with your name on it!
