I can’t help but to wonder,
who is sitting on the other side and reading my thoughts?
Is there anyone out there listening?
Pray 12 Sunnah prayers & Allah will build a palace in Jannah for you.
Pray 2 rak’ahs before fajr, 4 (2+2) before Dhurh & 2 after, 2 rak’ahs after Maghrib and 2 rak’ahs after Ish’a.
A little while back I made a deal with myself that I would use up all the fabric that I’ve already purchased before I buy any new. So I looked in my fabric box and found a lot of denim. This idea came out of the blue but perfectly timed because my old jeans jacket is a bit too tiny and too tight, for a hijabi that is.
To make this jacket you’ll need:
I thought it would be fun to share how my day goes about. With that said, no day is the same, but there is usually a common thread. A lot of playing, a little sleeping and a lot of eating.
07.30 a.m. – Every day starts early when you have a four month old. I hear the little one is awake and it’s time for breakfast in bed. After a quick breakfast it’s time to wake up and change the nappy and let the day begin. Now it’s two hours of playtime while I try to eat my breakfast and occasionally check social media.
09.30 a.m. – Time for a two hour nap (hopefully). And I can sleep a couple of hours as well. The upside to waking up early is that you allow yourself a nap whenever the baby sleeps. And I generally fall asleep as quickly as the baby.
11.30 p.m. – The day begins for the second time, and after some food and a diaper change we can play again. I need some food too and that’s usually lunch. Consisting of two, or three, slices of bread and a much needed coffee. We play and I try to do some tasks in between.
2.30 p.m. – It’s time to go out, ordinarily after the baby has had some food and a change. Whether it’s a trip to the shopping center or just a stroll down the street, nevertheless it’s nice to get out of the house.
3 p.m. – After a 30 – 40 minute walk we arrive home again, often with a sleepy baby. It’s time for a snack, mostly some fruit or nuts. It’s time to think about dinner as well, always a dilemma – steak, soup or chicken?
6 p.m. – The afternoon is spent playing, eating and maybe a 30 minute nap. Dad is also home and we slowly get the baby ready for bed. Usually it’s just change into PJ’s but twice a week there is also a bath.
7 p.m. – Dinner is made and the parents can finally eat as well. The baby is getting a little bit uneasy ad we can tell it’s time to go to sleep soon.
8 p.m. – We can finally breath out and enjoy the evening for ourselves. Watching “The Flash”, sewing or reading a book, either way, enjoying the quite sound of the night.
23 p.m. – I finally fall asleep, a half hour later than what I would like, but at least I get a couple of hours of sleep before I have to feed the baby again.
It was early Wednesday morning. The sun had made its way out behind the trees far away at the east. I awaited nervously for the two lines to appear. Anticipation was rising and even though I knew, I waited for five minutes.
I watched my reflection in the mirror and couldn’t help but to smile back. An exiting time was ahead. There we were, two instead of just one. I went back to bed wondering who you would become.
Now one year later I can finally hear you laugh, see you smile and hold you close. Knowing now that my life was never complete without you here.
So I finally finished a skirt I started on making a while back. The only thing was that I made it too thigh and i was hard to move in it. Now I finally fixed it with the help from a YouTuber. She gave me the brilliant idea to make a slit in the back and sew in a triangle piece of fabric. I had some complications with the execution which made it way too frustrating to sit down and sew. I took a beat and came back to the project, but whenever I did my sewing machine would pull down the fabric and tangle it all up, making holes in it. When I noticed my machine wasn’t willing to work with my, I hand stitched the fabric but this wasn’t the optimal solution. I finally sat down yesterday for one final attempt. And to my surprise, it worked! With a new needle in the machine and a lot of patience, I finally finished it.
My machine: Husqvarna VIKING H|CLASS
Fairly simple to maneuver when you get the hang of it. I recently also looked in the manual which, to my surprise, was a huge help. I found out that I could actually do an overlook seem with the machine. It’s nothing like an actually overlook machine but it does the job, with a much nicer finish than before.
I’m usually very comfortable in front of the camera and never shy away, but this time it just turned out awkward. I guess I need some more practice again.
We did manage to get out this Sunday. And I just had to take the opportunity to shoot some outfits shots. With that being said, I totally shied away today. I guess I’m not as comfortable as I used to be, or I need a different photographer. Either way, I know I can do better. Lets hope that this was a one time thing!
Pants: H&M | Jacket: Freequant | Top: Lindex | Sunglasses: H&M
Other than that we had a chill day inside. I’m crossing my fingers hoping to get more outfit pictures here soon!
