Work Vacation

I have been fulfilling a lot of local orders and with one more order to go, it’s about time for me to take a “work vacation”–to borrow the words of one of my favorite crochet gurus, Linda Permann. It’s not a vacation in the traditional sense, as I will be working all the way through it to tie in some loose ends, such as creating some new hat designs for the spring and summer, inking some of my neglected freelance writing projects, and playing with new patterns for Noora’s Nursery in both senses of the word. But first on my agenda is updating this website! So stay tuned–this website should be revamped hopefully by February 14th! Some sneak peeks and links for what I’m up to to follow, and if you just can’t wait to see what I’m hooking, you can always visit my ravelry project page which is always updated! I plan to be off my “vacation” by mid-March.


Welcome to Good AfterNoora!

It used to be Noora’s Nursery. It was cold outside…and an online storefront was born out of this artistically-minded mama’s desire to create unique and Islamically-inspired items for her baby daughter, Noora. It all started with a hat that I wanted to make to match all Noora’s multicolor coats. So I began to crochet, onlookers began to ooh and aah, and Noora’s Nursery was born!

I made items to order–customized to your unique specifications. But now this mama has retired Noora’s Nursery for a new adventure. A challenge, if you will…devoted to my journey in crochet and learning other historical arts of the hand (sewing, embroidery, cross-stitching, etc.) as well as parenting interests. Crafty things that I never thought I, a fine arts teacher, would get into until A.N. (After Noora). I didn’t think The Sandal, my primary blog devoted primarily to topics of Muslim interest, was the place to do it. So Good AfterNoora!
