My crafting adventures.


Sooo… I have been on vacation because of EID! So EID MUBARAK to everyone that celebrates it.

My birthday was that week as well so I had a great week! Alhamdulilah a beautiful and relaxing week.

Now that I’m home I haven’t been feeling well. I have started on a crochet project and have started a sewing project.

Yes my Daddy finally got the piece he needed and the sewing machine is amazing!

So yesterday I bought the rest of the materials I needed for my head towels. Today I decided to finish one at least. 

It didn’t come out perfect but I was close to it. So I can’t wait to make more tomorrow. 

These head towels are from recycled towels from our home don’t use any more.

Let me know what you think? 
The makeup is by chance, I haven’t taken it off yet lol..

Here is a little video of it..

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!!

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 Jalape├▒os 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!! ­čÖé

Take my Legacy, You are our new Generation


Needles, strings, and bobbins

I hear the call of the soft humm

I feel the cotton between

my itching fingers
Combine them together

Go slowly at first, if you press to hard

You might break the needle
Sixth generation through and through

Making clothes, fixing holes

This table has seen many of years

Families have enjoyed my labor of love

Now I pass my torch on to you
Our new generation; that is you

I give you my tools that I used long ago

Needles, string and bobbins
I pass to you our legacy

That was passed down to me

This is your badge of honor

This runs through your bloods
Get ready to hear your call

Get ready to pick up the cloth

Measure, cut and sew
You; the seventh generation

Take your legacy, my legacy

To thrive and sew away
  
This is my father’s sewing machine that he had when he first started his business. When he moved to his new place he did not have the space for it so he asked me if I would want it. He is a 6th generation taylor in his family, when I was a kid I asked him to show me but he told me that he wanted something bigger for me. Now that I have his sewing machine and I pretty much have a lot of time on my hands, I am going to learn how to sew a few things.. Need to start off slow before I get to the big projects Insha’Allah.

Wish me luck!!
Until Next Time,
