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.
