Saturday I finally got my hands on ã´ã“ã·ã‚Š magazine (as I keep stating). I came home and spent pretty much the entire evening making patterns out of the pattern book it came with. In addition to the snow bunny dress I posted I made a couple slightly less exciting shirts for my townies to wear.
And then I decided Octavian’s space moat could wait and I saved the patterns so Olive could get in on the dress making action. I’m not too fond of this reindeer dress. The color is kind of funky. But it was fairly easy to make.
After all that pattern making I still remembered to stop by K.K.’s with Vella and more importantly with Locke to pick up her birthday song.
Sunday I never even played with Vella. The day was spent with Locke trying to make everyone happy in preparation for today: her birthday. (Note: it’s not my birthday. Today is actually my niece’s 21st birthday. Scary!). Locke got a petition signed for Rooney, and ran into Hanabi’s former resident Kitt and Whitney (from my husband’s town) who recognized her.
She also gave perpetually starving Barold a perfect apple (thanks, Rachael!) and then against all odds got Octavian a bagworm. Though her face may have been harmed in the process. And her self-esteem as wellâ€¦
Was it all worth it? Well, Locke was escorted by none other than the unicorn himself to her party. So, yeah. It kinda was.
Did I get what I wanted? No. The final birthday item I need are the birthday candles. Locke ended up with a birthday cake. If anyone wants to trade a birthday cake for birthday candles, I would be ecstatic. But at least she got one of the birthday items so I don’t think my schmoozing was in vain. I’ll just have to remember to do it with more than 10 days to go and be a little more diligent in my letter writing next time (I say that every time). I don’t even remember what I set Olive’s B-day to. I think it may be my cat’s birthday, March 22â€¦
And that was that. She didn’t get any other presents from townies. Her mom sent her a gift and that was about it.
After the birthday fanfare I logged Vella back on to repair all of the trees that exploded last night while Locke was looking for a bagworm and then went on a couple dream adventures to ACUKE towns.
First stop Rick’s town of Farside:
Next stop: ACUKE founder Chorna’s town of Hideaway.
And now it’s time for me to exercise. I put on a bit of weight studying all the time. Plus side to exercising. Maybe I’ll be warm for a bit. It’s cold out!
