Turkey is the gateway to the east and has a rich culture of art and design, no doubt influenced by the eight countries that surround it. Turkish Delight or Lokum, available in many countries of the Mediterranean, is a sweet made of sugar and starch, flavoured with rose water, mastic or lemon, and may contain small pieces of nuts.
Hazel has taken some typical Turkish designs and created them in the colours that Turkish Delight is made. Crystals will give your embroidery a more authentic look, so each design can be stitched out with or without the spaces depending whether you are going to add crystals. Don't be limited to the holes Linda has provided and remember that hot fix crystals come in many shapes and colours now.
