Busy nia!

At last I finished the small pillow. I started to do this, in last days of winter… And I finished early in June 🙂 Now it needs to sew…

Another project is going on…. not finished. I try to make something for a new baby, who is not born yet, but very soon! Good Luck for them all,

My (unfinished) Socks

I love knitting… and remember, I started to learn knitting socks! But nothing went good.. I mean correct… I did again and again from the beginning… But what happened then, I solved the key how to knit socks with 5 needles…. yihuuuuu… But still there is not a pair of socks… there are single socks… my practice…

But I should add this too, this lady helped me so much, with her videos I am learning, without knowing German language 🙂

By the way yesterday I found another way too, without 5 needles… This time with magic loop… It is amazing and seems so easy than 5 needles,

I want to try with this one too..

 

 

Marbling

Every year I try to find a concept for my New Year dinner table. This time, the colour of “blue” I wanted to be ahead on the table…  And another point I painted the glass like making marbling. But it was an easy way and so enjoyable. What you need, colourful nailpolishes (whatever you like), a bowl full of water, and glass cups (what you want to paint)… You pour the nailpolishes one by one into the water and then with a stick you can mix, then you put the glass bottom into this colourful water. Take out and wait for a few minutes like that then you can leave it by putting upside down to dry… but be sure when it is not flowing…. Of course, if you want to use them, you have to make them hand wash.

Home Decoration “Peştemal”

Colours are my world, I love to play with them and  to decorate…. When I saw these two pieces they fascinated me. I bought. Actually they are not table cloth! Originally they are “peştemal” in Turkish (but means  cloth wrapped about the waist while in a hamam(Turkish bath), waist cloth)…

A peshtemal (Turkish: peştamal) is a traditional Turkish towel used in the Turkish baths. It is also used to specify which region people are from and is a part of a deep cultural tradition. In some places, it is called pestamal or pestemal. There are many kinds of peshtemals, with different styles and colors in each local areas in Turkey.

The peshtemal absorbs water as fast as a traditional towel, dries very quickly, takes up less space, is easy to carry and is therefore used as an alternative to the towel in bathrooms, pools, spas, beaches, sport facilities and for baby care. The peshtemal fabric is made of 100% cotton produced in manually operated looms in Turkey.

So, because of their colours I preferred to use them as a table cloth in my home. 🙂 I should add this too, the white small tea set if from IKEA, it is a toy for children, but I love them as a decoration on the table… All others are Turkish porcelain and tile…

Summer Project

A few days ago one of my dear blogger friends, dear Colline shared her summer project. It was so beaıtiful. And I told her, it is very hot here and I can’t make anything… Yes, but this week the autumn showed its face… Not so cool and not so hot… It is a lovely season right now… And yesterday, I did something, a vegetable basket for my kitchen or balcony. The rope I bought is from the hardwarestore, actually not for usual crochet or knitting works. But this rope is durable and strong especially for a basket. Right now I put some aubergines, but I can put tomatoes too… And I will hang in somewhere else in the kitchen.
