It’s officially autumn now, which means falling leaves, cooler weather and pumpkin-flavored everything. It also means many of our favorite television shows are coming back with new seasons. Mostly because of the his job, my husband and I tended to always be playing catch up to whatever the show of the moment is, but since the kids have moved out and our time is a little more flexible we’re getting better. I can’t WAIT to find out who’s meeting Lucille on the Walking Dead, but I’m still actively avoiding spoilers for the entire last season of Game of Thrones. Baby steps.
I’m going to start with this one, because Sesame Street and I are exactly the same age. When something has been on that long, I think it’s safe to call it a hit. I’ll have to try this Cookie Monster Candy Bark from DIY Candy because he was always one of my favorites.
I’m pretty sure I watched this show back in the day, but I was planning a wedding at the time, so everything from that period is a bit of a blur. I hear they might be working on a sequel though, so this Triple Cherry Pie Inspired by Twin Peaks from All Roads Lead to the Kitchen will come in handy for the viewing.
My kids were small in the years this show was on, and it was in the days before DVRs, so I missed a lot. One thing I definitely remember is this Friends Peephole Frame from Igloo Studio on Instructables.
Game of Thrones
We recently added HBO to our available channels, in part because we want to be able to watch future seasons of this before the spoilers make their way to us. This Game of Thrones Ice Cream from Let’s Eat Cake looks an awful lot like something that belongs in Westeros.
We don’t have good enough internet to be able to watch any of the streaming shows, but EVERYONE seems to be talking about this one. If you’ve seen it, this Stranger Things Interactive Wall Art from Akin Yildiz on Instructables probably means something to you.
The Walking Dead
I know it’s super gross, but this is one of my favorites. I don’t know if I want the new season to start or not, because I know we’re losing someone. These Bleeding Red Velvet Cinnamon Rolls from The Kitchen Overlord might make me feel a little better.
I haven’t started watching this yet, but my daughter keeps telling me I’d like it. Where do you start on a show that’s been around since the 60’s? If these Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Pens from Doodlecraft are any indication, my daughter is right.
We just finished the first season of this one at our kids’ urging, so we have quite a ways to go. I don’t know yet who the guy on the left is in this Team Free Will Supernatural Paper Craft from Yolapeoples on Deviant Art, but I’ll get there eventually.
This whole Sherlock Holmes Costume from Playing with Scissors is great, but I particularly like the way she made the iconic hat.
I kind of thought this was just a bodice ripper when I heard about the book, but the story is pretty intense. The yarn and fabric is always amazing though, like this Outlander Pattern for Claire’s Cowl from Shelli Westcott on Ravelry.
