Ramadhan is over and that means engaging in everyday activities are a lot easier, alHamdulillah. For instance, a recent post-Ramadhan trek to JoAnn fabrics for a sale. To not go would border on insanity, especially this week.

IMG_0061-002We added new fabrics to our stash: Country Classic solids, and Quilter’s Showcase prints. Both are 100% cotton and on sale for $2.49 a yard until Aug 17.

The best part of the trip was that McCall’s sewing patterns were on sale for 70¢ each! We stocked up! IMG_0060-001Each of us had her own stack of patterns  like this {Modest Clothing: McCall’s Ankle-Length Skirt}.

Dearest, teach your daughters to maintain their own pattern collections.  Each person buys for her own pattern library and pays with her own money, especially during a sale like the one we went to.

Providing funds for these types of purchases encourages our girls to engage in the valuable craft and skill of sewing. And taking them along for sales events is a hands-on demonstration in the art of thrift.

Life is wonderful. AlHamdulillah.
