Geneva: Day 1

Hello Friends! I've been in Geneva, Switzerland for the past week and a bit. In the time before that, I was busy trying to sort things out for the holiday and the few days after, I've been busy working and catching up with people. Now it's time to catch up with you.

Geneva was so lovely, it's definitely one of my favourite places that I've visited before. I took over 800 photos, which I've been trying to sort through, but there's just so many! It's taking me ages. I decided to take it day by day and post the photos like that, because then it would be less overwhelming to deal with. Also, it will be less stressful for your eyes, seeing a million pictures in one go.

Trams are amazingly quick and easy. I wish we had trams here.

My friend Sabeehah made us this cute welcome sign to hold up at the airport!

My sister and Louqmaan, smiles all around.

Guys with really cool instruments, playing really cool music. 

Eid Highlights

Eid was such a wonderful day! We had lots of friends over and ate lots! Everyone looked fancy and we had such a good time! 

Sewing: Chiffon Jacket

This is my first ever independent sewing project. I picked an easy pattern because I haven't really done it before. So first things first, I read the instructions and then got to cutting it out! Thankfully this one was only two pieces. Lord bless sleeves that are already in the pattern! 

I got out my pretty tape measure, which I got from House of Alistair.

I could just look at this all day long! The prettiest fabric ever! I was surprised by how cheap it was. So amazing!

Measuring out my 1 inch from the edge so I could pin my pattern down.

All pinned! I shall sew it all together tomorrow. That's going to be the second most tricky part. The first most was cutting chiffon! It just constantly moved around!
