It's been so long since i posted last..
It's been such a hectic of couple of weeks.My dad was admitted in the hospital with a critical heart condition.Pile on top of it his diabetes!!!!
I stayed awake with him most of the nights,me and my hubby both.(My brother was with him for the rest.We did shifts staying with him at all times,though dad kept insisting that he was fine.)After almost a week,dad is outta the hospital Alhamdulillaah.Honestly i didn't get even a few minutes to blog.But i am thankful Alhamdulillaah that dad is doing better,and i am praying that his condition gets better insha Allaah.
It's been two days after dad was discharged from the hospital.I came home and slept all evening and all night too.It is very unusual for me to be able to sleep soooo long hours.
I don't really know why,but I haven't been feeling really well for the past coupla days.So all i am doing is reading and a whole lot of just doing nothing.No hexing either.But i hexed a lot during the long hours i spent at the hospital with dad.I felt so happy knowing that dad loved what i was doing.He even helped me arrange some hexy blocks into flowers!
Dad told me stories about how even when i was a kid i used to make little cute stuff with my hands and paste little pictures all over the place,draw pretty stuff on the mirrors..etc etc.
I felt so happy feeling how proud he was of me.
He told us various fascinating stories about his amazing life,things we haven't seen or heard of ever before.Boy was my dad a great man.He still is.maybe,I will tell ya some of the stories sometime later.Insha allaah.
About what i have been up to..
I sewed a dozen abayas a while back.So i haven't been thinking about any more as i don't think i need more right now.But recently,While browsing for abaya designs(I love doing this and do this a lot for no reason that i can explain,)I found this amazing full butterfly abaya.Love at first sight.It looks so royal so elegant,and it looks so easy i could make it in under half an hour!Insha allaah.Anyone can!(Do i hope too much??)
see the gold satin lining?isn't it just amazing?
I have to have this one.One exactly the same would be fine though.And i am going to use black satin for the lining insha Allah.It's so so so beautiful.I love it so so so much.It's from sunnahstyle.com.
This is how my abaya should look like when its done.
I wear all black on black so it's quite a challenge creating something different every time.And i try to keep embellishments to a minimum on my abayas.
I haven't really figure out whats up with this sleeve,but its a nice look,though a little festive.not for everyday wear definitely.Cover the hair and chest and it would be a perfect outfit for us.Don't you think?
Another butterfly abaya from sunnah style.com.This one isn't a full butterfly,it has a cute sleeve.see it?
My hexy garden has grown a lot very long,but no pics unfortunately.I'll be running back with it to show you as soon as i get some shots of it,insha allaah.
I'm nodding off again.In the middle of the afternoon.And i slept all morning too.
I'm telling ya, something is not right with me!
Lotsa love from,
