Little to Report

There has been absolutely no sewing here the last few days.  I have been feeling coldy and like a horrible virus is about to descend while rushing arounnd like a blue a***d fly.

It's the big Eid here tomorrow, when most families sacrifice a sheep.  I snapped this shot on my mobile yesterday afternoon.  It's a fairly common sight here in the days running up to Eid and Zaki enjoyed it as he loves Shaun the Sheep (see below).


We're off to the in-laws later today to celebrate Eid with them.

Beautiful tote made for me by the lovely Karen at Listen to the Birds Sing
I'm all packed.  I can't speak for the boys...

Your tote is beautiful! Is there a tute you can share for us to make one ourselves? It wouldn't be as cute, but I'd try!

Enjoy the holiday. Now, I am with the other two - what pattern is that tote made to?!

First of all feel better soon. It's no fun being sick and having to go somewhere or celebrate a holiday. I'm going to read up on that holiday.
That tote is lovely it looks like you are packed and ready to go.

we love shaun the sheep and Timmy :) I think we've got the same thing, I'm achey and tired with sore throat but no cold yet, have a great weekend and come back feeling 100% better :) x

Feel better! I am not familiar with Shaun the Sheep, but it looks related to Wallace and Gromit. Naturally sheep belong on four-runners and motorbikes. ;)

Janine said...

I hope you shake off your cold and enjoy the Eid festivities. You have very well behaved sheep in Marrakech!

Good luck explaining why Shaun's head has fallen off!

It's all Timmy here! (The sheep I mean!) - "He's a little lamb with a lot to learn..."

Leanne said...

I hope it is a day of family and fun.
