A Little of This and a Little of That

Yep I've been doing this and that and then some.  In fact it's been a little crazy as you can imagine getting ready to go away for so long.  

I'm about half packed now.

and am making my way through my to do list.

One of the things I wanted to do was make a sleep shirt out of hubby's old dress shirt.  I thought the cotton material and larger, longer size would work well in Bangladesh.  I wanted something that would be cool and comfortable.  So I cut the sleeves and collar off and sewed a hem on the raw edges.  

I don't think I will be winning any fashion awards, but it looks like it may just do the trick.

As an aside:  I found two different Robin's egg shells over the past few months as I was out walking Juno and was struck by how different the shades of blue are.  They both are lovely blues, but I had no idea that Robin's eggs could vary that much.

By the way, the guest posts are coming in fast and furious and I'm really excited to share them with you.  Lots of fun things to look forward to this summer!


  1. Love the sleep shirt! Looks comfy and right down my alley! Hope you have a great trip.

  2. Have a great trip Grace! I can't wait to read all about it on your blog! I have been busy too packing for Nova Scotia. We leave tomorrow and come back to Edmonton on July 31. I would have loved to write a guest post for you while you are away, but I was uncertain of what I was doing with my own blog for the month of July! I got a laptop this week, so I am hoping to blog about our vacation while on vacation! I wish you a wonderful trip and I know you will do awesome work for the community while you are there!!
