An invitation from Istanbul


Hello from a warm and sunny Cape Town :-))


I have some gorgeous embroidery to show you from Istanbul, Turkey.


Belma Aydin of Belsu-Crafturk in Istanbul sent them to me and I am in awe of the quality of the workmanship. Mrs Beyza Erguney is the teacher for all these projects
