Nothing really exciting has happened in my life lately except that I'm working on recipes again. I'm working on a copycat Olive Garden breadstick recipe. So far I've got the bread part of it, I'm having a hard time balancing out the butter glaze that's on them. I can't get the portions right for whatever reason.
Time for my unpopular opinion: Pumpkin spice is gross. Don't get me wrong, there are some things I like that are pumpkin spice (love the Oreos), but I despise the coffees. I thought maybe it was just Starbucks, but I've tried other coffee shops PLUS I made my own and I just can't drink it. I'm forcing myself through the half gallon pitcher of iced coffee I made, but it is rough. I didn't like the M&M's, I don't like the Hershey kisses, and the pumpkin spice pudding was horrid. Maybe I'm just not doing it right. REAL pumpkin spice stuff made with real pumpkin and spices is awesome, I think I just don't like the weird chemically taste of the fake stuff.
Alright, time for WIPs. The first up is my son's blanket:
Don't mind the unevenness. It's not stitched together yet, so it looks a little wonky. I'm working each row and I did both of those rows yesterday. Also, I leave my tails until the end, so those won't be gone until the blanket is done. I figure I'll do them all at once because it's just easier.
Next up, my geisha:
Not too much is done since the last time, but the purple is almost done! I'm kind of sad because the colors on the picture of the finished kit are different than what I'm stitching with. Kind of disappointed because I wanted those rich blues and greens and instead I got purples and different greens. Ah well, it still looks nice in person, this picture makes it look washed out.
Alright on to Legend of Zelda photo challenge! If you don't want to continue on, happy stitching!
Day 19 - Least Favorite Legend of Zelda game
It's not that I didn't like this one, it's really just that in the list of Legend of Zelda games, this one comes last. I have liked ALL the Legend of Zelda games, this is just the least favorite.
Day 20 - Favorite Battle
Fighting Dark Link (any game)
I like the idea that you're battling with yourself. It's not exactly a new concept, but it's still one of my favorites. Hyrule Warriors implemented Dark Link and made me fall in love with the fight even more because of what happened. It just showed that even the Hero of Time isn't perfect.
Day 21 - Favorite Goddess
The Goddess of Fire. She seemed a bit more spunky than the other Goddesses and therefore I thought she was more fun. Nayru and Farore were just boring compared to her.
Alright, I'm off to work on the last few squares of the second row in the blanket. Happy stitching, everyone!
