Two months before I decided to work on felt. And my felt adventure has begun at that time.

I bought some merino wool for needle and wet felting from dear Orit.
Orit's lovely shop is www.oritdotandolls.etsy.com

Later I asked to dear Inger for advise on felting. Inger is a great on felt with her incredible works. You can look at her lovely shop from here:


Inger advised me to buy a needle set from Kay Petal and I bought this needle set.

Dear Kay's shop is www.feltalive.etsy.com

After I come back from vacation my needles came and I thought of starting felting.

Today I bought a lovely tutorial from dear Inger to make felting flowers. Thanks a lot

my dear friend Inger for all your helps and for your sweet friendship to me.

Here are some photographs of my first felting flower

And finally I finished my first felt flower.

Today I enjoyed a lot with felting:)

Felt is my new love .

My Pink Felt Flower can be used as a necklace, bracelet or head accessory.

♥ IF ♥ Special Poem by RUDYARD KIPLING

A few days before, one of our family friends shared me this special poem. I love it a lot and want to share to all my friends. It is about life and for everyone individually. There are many wise things to read and think about. I hope you love and enjoy too.

IF you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,

Or being hated, don't give way to hating,

And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;

If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings

And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,

if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,

And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

After I was accepted to Art History Master in Istanbul Technical University, in 7th of July I went for master registration. At that night I went vacation to Bodrum,Gündoğan with my mother. Bodrum is a favourite vacation place for everyone in Turkey and the Aegen Sea is really beautiful.

One day we went to Bodrum and here is a photograph of the Bodrum Castle.

That day sun was shining beautifully through the scenery.

We went for having delicious icecreams and waffels near the seaside.

Here is my mother,Figen with a shining smile on her face.

Also there was a friend of my grandmother called Fevziye with us for a week and we had a great and joyful time on vacation.

In Gündoğan, when we want to go swim one day there were lovely ducks in the sea.

We went for a walk near the sea with my mother. Here are some fascinating sceneries of sea, flowers and nature.

The last days of our vacation there was a beautiful sunset and this was a scenery from our house.
