Seasonal colours

In the UK at this time of year i notice a lot of red, i believe its to do with the pending Christmas season, all around me in the shops and high streets d├ęcor bursting with red. Sometimes glittery, i must say i like the prettiness of it all. I don't celebrate Christmas but living in the west you can not avoid it. So i just take advantage of all things seasonal at this time!
Here are some seasonal pictures of this colour around my kitchen by coincidence of course!

WIP updates

I have been crafting a lot lately mashaallah and i have to say been loving it Alhamduiah ! What a blessing from my Lord that he has blessed me with hands and a sane mind to enable me this humble pleasure. What a lot to be grateful for and not take for advantage.

A friend and sister in Islam rings me Saturday mid morning and tells me she is at a Lidil Stores and they have lots and lots of pretty yarn at cheep cheep prices, did i want her to get me some? You bet i did , she told me all the different colours ect so i picked out some and here they are yummy yarn!

As i went to refund her the cost she then informs me its even yummier as its a gift for me from her . Jazak Allahu Khyrun Ukti (may Allah bless you sister).

A scarf for the sister, this pom pom yarn works well with knitting and as you may know not a great knitter but can do the basics!
