My Crocheting life


Here is the finished product! I’m so happy how it came out!

image

Yes I am selling it but only locally right now. Still looking into the logistics of shipping, taxes and all that stuff. So most likely prices will go up once I’m on Etsy because of fees, but I’m sure you all will understand that.

So this morning I started on my new blanket. It will be a baby blanket for a baby girl. The design is a bit different, I don’t want to repeat the same ones over again. So here is the Sneed Peek to the new blanket.

Let me know what you all think.

Finally Success


So a couple of months ago I posted a picture of some seeds that I was trying to grow. Well there hasn’t been an update because I was not successful in germinating them.

But I didn’t give up, I kept planting seeds. Now I bought different seeds and they have been successful! Here is a picture of my babies!!

image

This past weekend we bought two more pots for the little ones on the silver tray. There are three different kind of plants I’m growing right now. Cilantro, spinach and basil. I germinated two seeds for each plants as you can see my cilantro I think I might have mistakenly put two seeds in the pod so I can’t do anything about that one the other ones though are just one plant in each pot. I’m so happy!! Now the work on keeping them alive!! Insha’Allah they keep growing. I’ll update in a couple of weeks on their progress.

I have also started another batch of seeds. This time one is Jalapeños and dill. Hopefully they germinate, I can’t wait to keep growing my balcony garden!

I am close to finishing off my crocheting blanket. I showed you all a couple of months ago my beginning progress of it. Well here is the almost completed blanket. I just need two more strips and to make a border and I’ll be done.

So, the project that I keep bringing up that I don’t want to talk about but can’t wait to tell you all..

I am going to open up my own Etsy online shop!! I have been getting legal advice and now I’m in the process of getting all the logistics into place. For now I will only be selling locally but once my Etsy Shop is open I’ll expand nationally and hopefully globally. I just need to make sure things are done right and I get more blankets done so you all have nice options of blankets and other items to choose from.

I hope to come back to my writing world soon I have so much to say. I just want to focus on my shop and get that going.. wish me luck!! 🙂

Pictures of Hobbies


Here’s a snippet of my world.. working on getting paperwork done, doing research and Insha’Allah soon I can finally open the doors to the public about my shhh secret project..

Here’s a bit of pictures of my hobbies…

My camouflage Throw is finally done. It is 58″ X 53″. It is nice a warm, it took me a total of one month (1 1/2 weeks active time). I’m really proud on how it came out.

image

This is my second project that I am working on right now. This one is a big bigger then the camouflage one but I am having fun making it…

It you want to see more pictures of my hobbies look for me on Instagram!

I am giving writing a bit of a break as you can tell. I have to keep my focus and keep my momentum. As I said before Insha’Allah if everything works out well then I will be able to finally tell the world!!

Until Next time

My Expression of Love


Do you know how much I love you
Can you see my devotion leaping from my eyes
Feel my burning love everytime I touch you

My world has focus with you in it
Each breath I take near you keeps me alive with joy
Your smile gives me warmth and brightens up my day

Your words are wisdom that helps me plan the future

I love you do you know that
I can’t live without
My heart feels enormous when you undress me with your eyes

Do you realize I’ll follow you to the end of this earth

You my beloved
You are my heart
You I love even in death

8 things we need to stop telling dads if we want gender equality


http://matadornetwork.com/life/8-things-we-need-to-stop-telling-dads-if-we-want-gender-equality-2/

Makes sense… father’s should be equals in parenting as much as women. Sometimes father’s can become closer to the children because of their “carefree” parenting… nice article.

Enjoy

My world as I know it


Hello again

I am sorry that I have not been on here lately. I have been working on a project that is still in the works. Slowly that project is becoming more as a reality and maturing to the point I will be able to talk about it more..

Here are a few pictures of what I have been up too lately.. enjoy!!!

image

I have been making more baby blankets and I’m getting great feedback. People are really liking them.

image

I have also been doodling in making dresses for me. I’m still in the process of learning to sew so this won’t be happening anytime soon but I am loving the process of designing my own clothes.

image

I have been sewing some groceries bags for myself and family. I believe I am getting them right but I want to design my own type of bags instead of buying patterns for them…

image

Currently I am crocheting this camouflage yarn… I won’t say what it is but I will say, I had to buy ALOT of yarn for the whole project. I am sure I’m going to like it though.

So basically this is me, I have been into crafting hobbies right now. It relaxes me, and keeps me really busy. I am still trying to no be on the Internet for long periods. To much negativity and I gave noticed that it affects me. So I prefer to stay in my little world where I can be happy and at peace. It doesn’t mean I am ignoring the world but I need to have my haven where the nasty Ness doesn’t come in.

Until Next Time,

Liza

So Adorable!!


Here are the two twins having a little nap with the blankets I sent them. They are so adorable!!

I am so happy that their mommy liked them and that they weren’t small. I have another gift ready to send tomorrow and the last blanket will begin tomorrow.

I do not like showing kids or baby faces since I am not their parents. But they look adorable though!!

My projects


I have been kept busy and this week is just as busy Alhamdulilah!!

I have been trying to get away from social media and for two months I think I have been successful. I don’t feel as negative anymore nor do I feel like I’m not accomplishing anything

Here are a few pictures of projects that I have been doing. If you would like to see more of my life in pictires please follow me on Instagram.com: @a_loving_wife.

I have been trying my green thumb and I think I am being succesful. My seeds sprouted… well only two of them and I transferred them to a small pot to see if they keep growing.. so far I do not see anything so I’m hoping I didn’t kill them…

image

My very first Crochet project. It took my about 2 months and it isn’t the best but I believe for being my first one I did great. My hubby started using it immediately since it is getting colder here.

image

I have completed two more blankets. These are gifts for a friend that had twins. Yes she had a boy and girl!! They are very simple but they are better then my first one. U have to pack them today and send them tomorrow since it is raining so hard I don’t want to risk getting them wet.

I still have two more baby blankets to do which I’m working on now and hopefully finish this week.

I am loving this a bit more then the sewing especially since I can work o this pretty much anywhere. I guess with the sewing machine that I have I’m getting frustrated since it keeps messing up the thread..

So I have not forgotten you my precious wordpress world. I have just been taking a back seat and working some angles that Insha’Allah will benefit our life here at home. Once everything is settled and done I’ll let everyone know what it is..

Until next time,
Liza
