My Lovely Oyas
Here is a picture of the Oyas I purchased from Rengin, Istanbul, Turkey. This wonderful and ancient needleart comes from the villages of Turkey and is handmade using simply a needle and thread. Each piece is so delicate and exquisite.
From there a special friendship has begun, for which I am so grateful. We have a similar history in which we each walked the same path but in two different parts of the world. From this I hope we can be an encouragement to each other and to other's.
Rengin truly has a gift for creating beautiful works of art. I can only wish to be as talented. She also just completed her block for the Art Bra Project arranged by Victoria Brown of Ribbonsmyth I encourage you to take a look.
At the moment I am undecided as to how I want to use the Oyas. Perhaps a crazy quilt heart block .....
Until next time, Peace and Grace.
