Swap Gifts

I came home from the hospital yesterday morning to recieve a lovely surprise. As part of a swap we have been engaging in, Umm Nassim has sent me these lovely gifts. The abaya is just right for summer and I love the Moroccan style. I have seen someone wearing something very similar during hajj and looked everywhere for a similar one. I'm thinking white/cream trousers and a cream scarf fora summer day out (maybe I should ask Ange over at Hegab Rehab for ideas?)

She was also kind enough to send me some "light" reading as she puts it. I haven't started reading this yet, but have already started flipping through to where there are recipes interspersed in the story (just the inspiration I neede to become the gourmet cook I keep deluding myself I will be, especially as I haven't stepped into the kitchen in weeks).

Thanks Sister Farhana for arranging the swap and Umm Nassim for the treats. You can head over to Farhana's blog Sketched Soul to see what the other swap partners have been sending and receiving and read their book reviews, and while you are there please do take a look at some of the sadaqah projects and see if you can assist insh'Allah.
