I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

Las Vegas - Bull Riding

Our last night in Vegas we attended the Bull Riding finals at the South Point Casino. It is the only one with a Sports Ring. It takes place on alternate sides for better viewing. Here the superbly trained horse chases the bull into the stalls.
When the action was on the other side you could still see it clearly on the video monitors in the center. The rides were also replayed there.

There were fireworks before the show.

The horse is after the bull yet again.

Here the bull is chasing one of the clowns.

The rider had to stay on for 8 seconds for it to count.

A clown act during a break.

The bulls look pretty gentle here.

One of the riders.

One of the riders hurt his head quite badly but rode again later.
