Oya's from Istanbul Turkey




Today a special package I order from Rengin arrived from Istanbul, Turkey. I have been admiring Oya for a long time since when I first saw them on crazy quilts, scarfs and in Patchwork Quilt Tsushin issue number 125 April 2005. I was very excited to see them upclose and believe me no photo can do them justice. They are so delicate, I am in awe of the artist who create these works of art. The Beaded Oya Lace is also extremely beautiful. All these incredible gorgeous Oyas and lace will proudly be used on "The Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams"!

Rengin included a very lovely surprise gift for me of many beautiful things I can also used on my Crazy Quilt. Please see the second photo from the top. Beautiful hand dyed ribbons in my favorite colors, sparkling metallic threads, fancy fabric pieces and sweet charms along with a photo post card from Turkey. Thank You Rengin from the bottom of My Heart.
