Turkish Tiles & Getting Going Again!

As it would seem, many craft groups are starting off again this week after having a two month break.
I know that in my town Patchwork starts again tonight and embroidery tomorrow so therefore I think it is a good time to add a few photos of some tile patterns that I took while I was in Istanbul last year.
Considering that these tiles are a few hundred years old (dating from 1600's on) they are in great condition.  I think you should be able to click on them and bring them up closer and have a good look at the patterns and colours that they used. Blue and White was obviously a favourite.
What are your thoughts?
