my creative space





We have another wall hanging. I didn't like the card in the middle, so if I can't come up with another way of incorporating a dhikr or quote, I have to leave it out. This one reminds me Algiers!






Aysh asked for a tutorial and I thought, "Yeah, why not." So there's something for me to add to my To Do list. Let's see if I can squeeze it in before I go back to work after a super long summer holiday!


The kids go back to school in two days and I have no idea how we're going to do that with our crazy sleeping patterns of late. My early-to-bed-early-to-rise kids are playing nintendo games at 11 pm, true to the culture of our host city!




Today, I'm happy about ...
  • Knowing that there's an alternative to my broken digital camera. Oh yes, that's how I've been using it, aimlessly!

  • Working on a project that will help someone, in sha Allah. 
  • And here's another one for all you knitters and crocheters.
  • Getting together with a dear friend and her lovely children to make sweet treats. You have to try these easy oreo truffles. There are no pictures due to the gobbling up of most of them by lots of little people after an afternoon at the pool. 
  • Winning a giveaway here and here! I'm SO excited!

Thank you!!! Little moments, I can't bring myself to use it as a bedspread so it sits folded up and comes out as an easy backdrop for crochet photos!
Umm Imran, I know! Where did the summer go? Back to ironing uniforms and making packed lunches!
