The thrill of the hunt

October 21, 2014

I snapped this photo on the photowalk where we ended up shopping in thrift stores down by the water. And the only reason we walked up the street was to see if there were more thrift stores. What can I say? We’re hooked on reducing, recycling and reusing. Also, I think it’s the thrill of […]

Halloween bunting COMPLETE!

October 19, 2014

I did it. I have successfully completed the Halloween bunting! Hooray for us! I used this tutorial and made my own template. I made the triangles pretty big and I used about 5 1/2 metres of double bias binding. I’m so glad I went the double folded pre-made binding route. It looks really nice close […]

New Westminster

October 18, 2014

We celebrated Faturday in style today. We went out to iHop with our buddies, Chris & Tami, in New Westminster. The sun was shining (AGAIN! Some more!) and we went on a photowalk down by the water. Actually, what ended up happening was we got a little side-tracked by Antique Alley (I think it consists […]

Sewing at night

October 16, 2014

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 […]

How to eat a turkey dinner

October 13, 2014

While the turkey is roasting in the oven, set the table with as many containers as possible that have lids on them. Also, have the squirt bottle nearby as to keep any cats off the table. Since we only set the table twice a year, the cats were curious as to what was happening.  Eventually […]

Bumps on a log

October 12, 2014

Mike & I went on the hunt for some fall foliage and tried a local park called, Green Timbers Urban Forest.  I think we were a little bit early because there wasn’t much as far as colourful leaves go. The park was really nice, though. We walked along the huge, wind-y path called, Cedar Trail. […]

Made by pals

October 10, 2014

My feet were too sore and it was SO late when I got home last night (after 11:00) I took yesterday off from blogging. WHOA. A mid-week day off from the blog? Not usually how I roll, but last night I made the exception. And I didn’t take a single photo at the portfolio show, […]
