A Quandry

Three girls, two nighties

Everyone was happy to see Tansy, but we hadn’t planned for her!  We only packed two ladybug nightgowns, one for Constance and one for Patience.

Another problem was that we only brought two sleep sacks (made by the talented daughter of a Hitty friend). It took a little discussion to decide how to keep everyone warm for the night.

Tansy needs the nightie

A lack of linens means Tansy definitely got a nightgown! The other two girls drew straws for the second one.  Tansy thinks I ought to sew some more sleepwear not to mention unmentionables.

Fortunately our generous host and Hitty friend gave us a gorgeous Oleana scarf from Norway, so none of the Hittys suffered during the chilly nights.

  1. Don’t they look cosy! I bet the girls would be very happy if you just cut up that scarf and made sleeping bags out of it. Though it would be a shame to cut up such a beautiful thing.

    • Funnily enough I thought I heard the Hittys mention something similar, but in case there are any particular Hitty friends or Norwegians having heart attacks at the thought – no I do not plan to cut up the Oleana Scarf…

  2. The ladybug nightgown is very cute, and the sleep sacks with the quilted fronts are divine! Looks like all three Hittys were happy with the distributions!

  3. I am also a fan of those lovely sleep sacks…and the lady bug night gowns. Now my girls are clamoring for night gowns!! But they want me to tell Tansy that they do all have unders!! Poor Tansy….. as usual great photos.

    • I think Tansy had to take off the inner layers when she went to Haida Gwaii because they didn’t fit under her overalls and plaid shirt. She got used to going without, but now her secret’s exposed, so to speak, I will get right on it…
