As Salaam Alaikum y’all,
It’s been a long time since I’ve actually written a blog post, but if you’ve followed me on Facebook – you’ve seen I have still been active.
Actively working on a pattern improvement/expansion for my kufi design.
I am super excited about getting these patterns done and published 🙂 but there is no particular time frame when it will be yet.
I have had some Kufi orders on Etsy, which has been wonderful.
We went to the beach over the weekend and I purchased my first makeshift “burkini” – black leggings with a long sleeve track shirt and a normal black swim “coverup” shirt on top. Unfortunately we didn’t snap any pictures, so you will have to just imagine my amazing mom-bod. But not that much. Stop it. That’s really creepy.
Other than that, nothing is new..
I am seriously shaking my head at fellow feminists having a hard time supporting a Muslim woman’s choice to cover – often buying into the atheist idea that religion itself is oppressive and maintain while a woman can choose to cover: she’s still “oppressing” herself. You cannot have it both ways – if you support a woman’s right to choose, you cannot take it back when she chooses something for herself that YOU don’t like. Stupid.
Keep Hooking Y’all.
