I think bunting is very 2012, but I am making Halloween bunting come hell or high water. I got about a dozen more pieces cut tonight, sewed 2 sides of each triangle and was able to start sewing the double bias binding down to the triangles. I am SO close to getting it done. I just had to leave it in my sewing machine to make a late night trip to the skytrain to pick up Mike.
SIDE NOTE: I have been using the walking foot on my sewing machine exclusively. It holds the fabric together great! No sliding or slippage! Very clever.
I will definitely get this done this weekend and will hang it high in the entrance in celebration of the spooky season. YES! And Doug will be adorned with the bunting as well.
This has been a short but productive week. Especially today. On my way into work and as I left the skytrain and hopped on that really steep escalator, I had a huge urge to change the way my desk was arranged. This was quite the task as I share the space with 4 other people. So I disrupted their work, moved my desk and cleaned up the nooks and crannies. I also bought a plant because we have 1 tiny plant in our whole office. Now we have 1 tiny plant and 1 small plant in the office. Hooray for oxygen!
Tomorrow night I’ll be seeing a Vancouver International Film Festival movie with some pals from work. Yes! Weekend already. Faturday is right around the corner.
ANOTHER SIDE NOTE: Even though we had an extra cheat day this week for Thanksgiving, that day was not as exciting as Faturday. I think it’s because I really didn’t feel like I earned that cheat day. But once a week? It feels very satisfying. Pumpkin pancakes, here we come!
