Wow, it’s been a little while! Sorry for the lack of posts, but I’ve been working on my blog in other ways, like preparing for a patterns page. Meanwhile, in my town I’ve had both set-backs and progress, and I’ve been able to visit a few friends’ towns. 🙂
On my last post I left off in the middle of the Acorn Festival, and I guess my Rotten Acorn fortune from Cornimer had some truth to it, because I had quite a week. >_<
I knew I must have missed a day of watering when I stepped outside to see all of my red turnips wilted and dead. 😥 I don’t even want to figure out how much money I lost. But I just liked having a little red turnip farm, to be honest.
You can’t see all of the loss in this picture, but a lot of flowers from my island were gone, and I’m sure some were hybrids.
My blue rose breeding spot took the worst hit, I think, with three precious flowers gone. 😦
And the one time I forgot to check my neighbors, Baabara snuck out on me. She came from Kammile’s town, and we were going to try and move her back there, I’m so sorry! 😥 There were many neighbors in my ninth slot at the time because I didn’t know she was going to move, and didn’t clear my slots before she moved. Because of that, it wasn’t even really worth trying to do the trade… 😦 She’s the first neighbor to move out who I was trying to keep! I’m usually pretty good about checking neighbors, but I guess a mistake was bound to happen eventually.
This isn’t really as big of a deal, but just to continue with this list of unfortunate events…😛 The 30,000 bells I planted here in my last post didn’t grow into a money tree.
But the good news is that I tried again and it worked this time! 🙂 It’s still the same color as the tree beside it, though, so I don’t think my theory about money trees being a different color from regular trees in the Fall is true. xP
Growing a new purple tulip and jacob’s ladder that day was a nice reminder that I can grow back my missing hybrids. 🙂
Another good sign of better things to come, I got a Mini Acorn fortune rather than a Rotten Acorn fortune from Cornimer this time. 😆
On the final day of the Acorn Festival, I received the final piece of the Mush series from Cornimer! I also participated in my dad’s town, and once before in a previous town, so I have three sets of the Mush series now. 😛 Let me know if you’re missing some pieces, I’d be happy to help out.
A new house! It’s the same as Curt’s. I wish the villagers with this house shape would choose the pink house style, so I could have double wooden fans in the top window.
Sally’s my replacement for Baabara. I like her catchprase, nutmeg. 🙂 I’ve never had her before, so I’ll try to get her picture before she moves (and Tipper’s!).
Skye from Rosewood, known as Monkeydoodle on Animal Crossing Community, sent me a private thread asking if I could put my path patterns on ACC’s gallery. Sadly, I can’t, because ACC’s palettes 12 and 13 are different from AC:WW’s. But then she invited me over to her town, and I brought some path patterns with me, as well as two pieces of blue furniture (she’s collecting that series), and flowers to help with her breeding spots. 🙂
My first step into Rosewood. 😀 Nice outfit, I like it!
These breeding spots look improved to me, good luck with growing hybrids! 😀
I displayed a few of my patterns at Ables’, like the spaced brown bricks and cobblestone paths. We were careful about saving from here on out because we had a WiFi crash after arranging the hybrid-production gardens, and had to do them all over again. >_<
Skye also wanted help with laying paths, and since guests can’t lay patterns on the ground, I thought I could help by making a gridded map of Rosewood with Sarouk’s town map generator.
While I was looking around her town to pick out the right acres from the site, I saw some nice spots, like this group of multi-colored trees and acorns. So pretty & autumnal! 🍃
I also couldn’t help checking what neighbors were about town~ Bluebear is one of many peppy villagers I love 😀
Argh, why can’t I find such great house styles for my second AC:WW town? These cozy cottages are exactly the types I’m looking for 😛
Rosewood’s in-game map, vs. the one I made with Sarouk’s town map generator:
Isn’t it cool how all of the major buildings are on one side of the river, and most of the villagers’ houses are on the other side?
I think this is how I would lay patterns if it were my town, but everyone has different ways of planning paths (and many have great all-natural towns with no patterns!), so feel free to do your own thing. 🙂 The orange squares are for the main road, and the yellow squares are for side paths.
Before Skye had to leave, she told me that there was a surprise for me in the recycling bin. Ooh, a surprise xD
Wow, all the golden tools! 😯 Thank you!!
I think I’ll give them to my character Amy in Red Bank since Twisk is reasonably close to earning them herself (9 more fish, 3 more bugs 😀 )
We say our goodbyes and I’m still in shock. 😆 Thank you for having me over! I’ll invite you to my town when I’m finished cleaning up and re-decorating. 🙂
I felt bad about Baabara sneaking out when I had told Kammile that I would try my best in moving her back to StarCity, so I offered to give her a new Baabara from an extra gamecard I have. When Kammile let me know that Bud moved out of StarCity Friday, I started resetting over and over, hoping to find a town with Baabara, but she refused to appear. >_< Fortunately, Kammile told me that she would also be happy with Gabi, who'd just snuck out of her town; or Peanut, one of her favorites from her original town. It was Peanut who appeared first! So I completed Nook’s chores in that town and time-travelled day by day until she moved out — all the way into December!
While resetting for Baabara (or Gabi or Peanut), I named all the towns Nimrodel in case I found my second dream town, which is the name I’m leaning towards now instead of Trildale.
To complete the trade, Kammile from StarCity and Violet from Nimrodel swapped friend codes, and Kammile came over to Nimrodel. There wasn’t much to do, but it was cool being in a temporary town because we could run around all we wanted (we chased each other at one point 😛 ), take flowers, chop down trees, drop stuff on the ground, and look for dandelions and four leaf clovers (didn’t find any of the latter 😦 ).
The humble beginning we all start with: a cardboard box, candle, and radio. xD
It’s unfortunate that Peanut finally moved out just days before snow would cover the ground, but we created fake snow by blowing the dandelion puffs littering the ground. 😛
She displayed the Pelly dress, along with a pattern gift for me, a brick path with a circular grassy garden in the middle. Thank you Kammile! 😀 I’ll definitely have Twisk or another character from Dafdilly pick up this pattern before I delete Nimrodel.
We visit Peanut’s vacant spot… she must’ve had a gardening hobby at one point. 🌼
Three Pellys, and one Phyllis! ^^ I don’t blame them for staring 😛
Kammile invited me to visit her town even though it’s under construction, which was really nice of her. 🙂
It didn’t look under construction to me! in fact, these might be my favorite pattern decorations I’ve seen in her town 😮
We went straight to Kammile’s house, and spent most of our time there, because she’s keeping her Halloween party decorations under wraps.
I loove the look of Kammile’s pink mansion, together with the exquisite landscaping — worthy of a manor — in the front yard!
Aww, two of her favorite neighbors’ pictures on the living room table. 🙂 Hopefully both will move back!
I had zoomed in to take a different picture, but when I walked towards the back room, I got such a strange view of the festive tree’s star. xD
Kammile had to change a few things in her back room, so I waited outside in the garden.
This is her back room after the changes: a café! It has such a cozy atmosphere with grassy bricks 🙂
Kammile found out that your eye gets smaller when wearing this mask, so it was really cool seeing it for myself on one of my own characters. I wonder what Twisk would look like with it on, since she has such big eyes!
Of course, I had to go visit Peanut before leaving since she was the whole purpose of these WiFi sessions. 😛 And she remembered me, aw!
I’m glad the trade worked — hopefully we can do it again with Baabara or Gabi, and it won’t be as difficult to find them. xP Thanks for letting me see your town even though it’s under construction, Kammile! It looks amazing so far!
Today I finally got around to changing some of my rooms:
Melody’s room will be an indoor basketball court, but until I make a polished wooden floor, it will be an outdoor one. 😛
And now that I have all the Mush furniture in Dafdilly (and brought some extras over from Red Bank, my dad’s town), Twisk can have her own bedroom! 😀
Her room might could use some tweaking later on as new ideas come to me, but I like it so far. There’s no music in this room, just the sounds of birds and trickling water.
I used the forest wall with the daisy meadow because Twisk’s name comes from a character in a book series who was a fairy (with blue hair, though sometimes red and sometimes lavender 😛 ). I like the series, though it’s not one of my top favorites. But I do love the names! There’s a minor location called Dafdilly Bay, which I obviously used for this town; and I thought Twisk’s name was unique and fun, and I liked the character in the books. My favorite location name from the series is the Forest of Tantrevalles, which is where Twisk and the rest of her fairy shee live. Unfortunately, it’s way too long for an Animal Crossing town name. 😛 Here’s a excerpt describing the home of Twisk, Madling Meadow in the Forest of Tantrevalles:
Early in the morning, with the sun low behind the trees and dew still wet on the grass, Graithe the woodcutter took Aillas to Madling Meadow. He indicated a low mound on which grew a small gnarled oak. “That is Thripsey Shee. To mortal eyes it looks like very little, but long ago, when I was young and rash, I stole here through the woods of a Midsummer’s Eve, when the fairies do not trouble to dissemble; and where you see now hummocks of turf and an old tree, I saw pavilions of silk and a million fairy lamps and towers rising one on the other. I felt that I must run out and join them, but I knew that if I danced so much as one step on fairy sward, I must dance without surcease the rest of my life, so I put my hands over my ears and went staggering away like a man bereft.”
— “Suldrun’s Garden” by Jack Vance
I might not have silk pavilions or towers, but I thought mush furniture would be the most fitting for Twisk’s fairy forest abode. 🍄✨
