Today is exciting. It is the big reveal and we get to see everyone's PJs. Head over to Pyjama Party Goes Live to take a peek!
Sometimes I love to sew something quick and easy and these PJs were certainly that! And to know that there are over one hundred other people around the world sewing at the same time makes taking part in a Sew Along fun!
As mentioned in a previous blog post, my nighttime wear often leaves a lot to be desired!
But look at me now……….
It is entirely coincidental that I felt the need to buy new bed linen at the same time as doing this Sew Along!! I was sick of the dull colours we have had for a while and wanted something light and airy for spring and summer.
What book am I reading? Well I am reading “New York” by Edward Rutherford, a sweeping history of New York City from the 1600s through until 9/11 and beyond (I think). We had our first trip to New York City last year and I fell in love with it. I will go back there in a heartbeat, the vibe and energy is just unbelievable. It’s not like I live in a little village, I live just outside of Toronto. But there is just something about New York. So this is interesting to read how the people and history have shaped New York into what it is today.
But I have a bad habit of having more than one book on the go at once, and having an e-reader (I have a Kobo) is enabling my bad habit! I am also reading Ecoholic Body, by Toronto journalist Adria Vasil. It is eye opening seeing what we are putting on and in our bodies. I have just started this book and it is making me seriously re-think my beauty routines! I am certainly not going to be eschewing deodorant and make-up anytime soon but will look at healthier alternatives to my usual brands!

And for those of you who noticed in the above pics, the two books on my bed side table, they are from my Book Club, "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein and "Half Broke Horses" by Jeanette Walls. We don't all read the same book in my Book Club, it's more of a "let's- get-together-and-chat-and-have-a-glass-of-wine-and-oh-by-the-way-let's read-some- books-Book Club.
