Alla Turca SAL completed!

I have finished the last part on the Alla Turca SAL by Pelin Tezer! It was stitched on 32ct Silkweaver's Aquamarine linen with Weeks Peacock and RG gold Sparkle braid. I adjusted pt.9 slightly, and added the gold to the monocrome pattern just for fun. It is stitched over one and is only 9 inches tall!

This took a little longer than I thought because we were away on vacation, then returned to a re-decorating project....painted our home office a lovely sapphire blue and with the help of our brother-in-law, we ripped out old carpet and laid new hardwood laminate flooring...I love it!
(just before vacation we also replaced all the toilets with new low-water use ones, in preparation for the next project...DD is getting her bathroom redone, same blue, with tangerine trim!)
Over Christmas the master br will get it's makeover as well.....in a few more years the whole house will be made over. I hope!
