Eid clothes

Yesterday, I managed to finish Eid clothes for my kids. For my daughter, I have sewn blue shirt with turkish pants, both embellished with gota and sitara.

For my son, I have sewn the traditional shalwar kameez with a little emroidery at the neck. I am relatively new at sewing and am quite happy with the results.

Huh! I've been tagged!?!!

As you can probably guess, I am new at this game.
OK, here are the rules:Once tagged, you must link to the person who tagged you. Then post the rules before your list, and list 8 random things about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to 8 other people, visit their sites, and leave a comment letting them know they've been tagged.

So,,,, here we go!!

Riohnna tagged me.

8 things about me!

1. I'm a sweet, loving wife to a sweet, loving husband and not-so-sweet amma to two kids.
2. I'm a muslim. Islam means a great way of life for us, leaving us in peace, having a reason to be on this earth.
3. Although I am a stay-at-home amma at present, I have been a doctor in the recent past.
4. Though at quiet person by many standards, I am a chatterbox when compared to a much quieter hubby.
5. I have always been a bookworm and love to read.
6. My other loves include knitting and crochet. Love yarns, hooks and needles of all kinds.
7. I can cook well enough but am more passionate about eating than cooking.
8. Well butterfingers describes it best. You see I have a tendency to let things slip out of my hands. We have gone through 2-3 sets of glasses in the past three years. Another nickname " living catastrophe".

Now to tag 8 more people. I don't personally know this big a number of people on the net so taking Riohnna's advice, I will randomly select 8 victims from the blog thread at 'ville:

Entrelac crochet handbag

This is my latest creation that I finished today. I plan to give it as a gift. I had these handles lying around for a very long time and always thought to use them someday., but as yellow is not the most obvious choice for handbag, I always put it off. Well I am glad I finally did it.

I have used flower print yellow cotton fabric to line the bag and placed cardboard within it for the bottom.

Cable vest

At last, I was able to finish the vest for my son. It is a Lionbrand free pattern and it effectively used up some leftover yarn. Also my son seems happy with it.

Next I will be switching gears and start some sewing projects as Ramadan is round the corner and family needs Eid clothes.
