In the Mountains


The other day I went with some friends to another friend who recently moved to another town, a 1 hour drive from ours.


We brought some flowers for their new home and after a lovely brunch we went in to the mountains.



Because this town has no seashore and a much higher altitude the weather is cooler. But when we went in to the mountains we almost froze as it was very cold and we were totally not prepared for it!




We all did manage to take some photos between freezing, luckily our friends car had heated seats as we almost froze off our bums :D


Near the lake was chilling cold, and it has a very weird texture around it.


It seems that when the water became less it left an interesting texture behind.




We got higher and higher and it got colder and colder, and it turned out that we were not cold for nothing as we actually found ice! While our town was still 24 C (75F).





The landscape was rougher and interesting trees started to pop up the higher we went.





While it all looks lovely from the screen we were happy to go back to warmer places, next time we'll take our Winter gear with us :D

The Magic of Felting


I have done it now several times, but every time is like magic!
Knit, knit, knit till you have an outrageously large and shapeless garment, throw it in the washing machine ...and voila, a perfect fit.


This is a free Ravelry pattern. Don't you love Ravelry? You can find it here.


The pattern is skimpy with directions. The slippers  are knit and than folded in an ingenious way. I strongly recommend that you mark the folding places like you see in the first picture, otherwise, the moment that you start folding you don't know anymore what is up and down and you are toast.


But the slippers are toasty :)

Spring is playing Hide and Seek these days. One moment the sun is shining and the next moment it is raining. With snow at alot of places this year's March is very strange but I'm guessing that Spring will soon win the battle with winter :)

Wishing you a Sunny week!

Wishing you all a lovely week!

Monday Moodboard

With all the snow stories I have been hearing the past week I got inspired to a snowy moodboard. In our little town, the most south east point of Turkey, it never snows and it is very very rare that the weather becomes under zero.

Stormy Weather


Winters are mild and stormy in South-West Turkey. Last weekend we had a seriously strong wind. Fortunately the roof didn't flew off, but a tree in the back yard broke in two and another in the front got partially uprooted, leaning precariously against the wall.


It is so sad to let go of a full grown, healthy tree, but this one had become a hazzard and had to be chopped off.


We hired three forest workers to do the job, that requires expertise in the matter.


It was scary to see, the big power saw in a hand, perched in the swaying tree and all the time a fag in the corner of the mouth, macho style.


First the branches were sawed off, to reduce the weight.


Two guys hold on to the rope that has to prevent the tree from falling on the neighbour's house.


And here it goes! Just where it's supposed to go.


The worst part over, a second chunk of the tree will be chopped.



And than it started to pour... as the weather didn't help it took them 3 hours to finish the job.


And by the time the sun returned, there was nothing left of the tree...

Abundance

A few weeks ago we where invited to the wedding of a very good friend. Mum couldn’t come because of the surgery she recently had (if you are curious look a few posts back). But I was really happy to hit the roads for new adventures!
Kütahya is a very strange city, full with beautiful historical buildings but also full of strange people. We bought a very old house there years ago with the dream to renovate it but never had the chance to realize it (financially). We still own that house and it was full of dust and other unpleasant things. I had to clean it for two days but it was good to check things out.
The road was good and the journey great, I arrived very fast (within 5 hours) without any problems.


I was staying at some friends whom I hadn’t seen for 6, 7 years and it was very nice to see them again. I went Wednesday the 13th and Thursday morning it started to snow a little, quite normal for middle Turkey. The plan was to have fun and go to the wedding at Saturday and then drive back on Sunday. But the snow… well it suddenly wasn’t slow anymore…


With all the snow excitement I mostly forgot to take pictures because it was windy and wet and freezing cold. The snow kept on falling and when it was finally the wedding day it was impossible to go by car…Luckily the wedding was close by and it was great. I really enjoyed it although I am usually not really a fan of weddings.


A friend would come, who has a big car to put some stuff in that stayed in the house. Thanks Heaven he was there other wise I still would be there. When he came Sunday morning he said there was only a little snow, so we packed our stuff quickly and started our journey at 1 p.m.
We thought that after Afyon it would be okay. Usually it takes less then an hour to arrive there but it took 2.5 hours. We ate a little and went on. But the snow just would not stop. Snow and more snow. Just when we thought it would end it even got worse… the wind blew up the snow and everything was white, snow white…



I took some pictures at the beginning where I still could drive with 1 hand, but afterwards I could hardly see anything and a lot of cars where smashed or hidden under a thick blanket of snow. So the pictures are only the beginning… the journey took 14 hours (instead of 5) and we where like zombies when we arrived.


The snow never ended until Mu?la which is only 1 hour away from home. It hasn’t snowed all winter and everyone thought I brought abundance to Kütahya because snow means water. But I have to say abundance can be pretty dangerous :D
