Quilling I did -Letters

I had done this project during the summer break. Wanted it to be a gift for my family. Took a while for me, but every one loved their letters.

The on-the-wall look.

For my DH

For Reihan-My first born & my book worm

For Afreen- My second born & my little crafter

For Dania- My baby who learned the letter D with this.

Quilling I did - Snowflake

My first quilled snowflake.



I sold a quilled necklace at the arte fair. Unfortunately, didn't take a picture. Made it in black with red crystal in the centre.

Snowflake jewelry

Had an order for a snowflake jewelry set, in silver. I used 3 strands of fine silver thread & a single strand of white cotton & also swarovski crystals. I'm quite pleased with it overall.
I got the design from a spinneys shopping bag & translated it into crochet.




The Earrings


The pendant




Packed & ready to be gifted.


Also made a small tag to go along.

A day out

We went to the Sharjah Aquarium last weekend.
Kids enjoyed it a lot. They got to see a lot of sea creatures up close.
Dania was scared & excited at the same time. Reihan kept running around asking a lot of questions. Afreen wanted to see an octopus which, unfortunately, was not there.




This sea horse had issues!!!



So beautiful. MashaAllah!


This guy was really sleepy.




Black & white stripes.
I'm calling this The Zebra Fish.
(I can't remenber the actual name.)




Nemo's friend.




Hubby had a lot of fun too.....taking pictures.







My fav picture....the sunset.

A felt pouch


I had designed & crocheted a bag recently (which,by the by, took me nearly 2 months) & I needed a pouch to go with the bag as I couldn't take any more frogging out (the bag). So I surfed the net & found this. PERFECT! But it's sewed!!!! Saved it in my fav & prayed for another way out.
Waited a couple of days & then gave it a shot.
Turned out just perfect.
And all at one go.
(That happens very rarely.)
Hand appliqued the mushrooms on them & sewed on little seed beads.

For a new friend...



....thank you for re-introducing me to quilling.....
...which I have been doing a lot....
....and enjoying every min.

Had to share...

Prophet Muhammed (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Sight is a poisonous arrow of the devil. Whosoever, whether male or female, protects himself or herself from evil glances, will be granted a sweet eeman (faith) which will please his/her heart.” [Tabrani] Subhan Allah!!

Quilted Runner


I have been wanting to make this ever since I saw it but I'm not that enthusiastic about sewing. I even thought of crocheting a similar thing. But now I need a break from crochet!!!!!!!!!
I used what materials I had and am happy with the way this turned out. I didnt have to unpick any stitch.....even the sewing machine co-operated very well. So well that I want to sew more!!!!

Bias bag



Love this bag!!! It's adorable. Made for Afreen & her friend, Iqra.

Bags for my girls

I had stitched a bag for my Afreen. So had to make one for Dania too. I crocheted this one is less than an hr.




Because Dania got a new bag, Salma (my niece) demanded one for herself too. Salma has more bags then her mom! And she is only 2!!!!



My baby girl modeling both the bags.

Tissue Covers

I made this tissue cover along with Yasmin as a crochet along. The basic design was hers & I modified it to suit me. It was more of a design-a-long with lots of FUN thrown in!
