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.

Angkor Thom, Angkor Wat

After Angkor Wat we had Jenna our tuk tuk driver take us to Angkor Thom, another complex about a mile and a half away. Actually there are about 11 complexes here and would take days to properly visit. Which is probably why weekly passes are available. The charge for a one day pass is $20. Angkor Thom means Great City and was the last capital of the Khymer Empire.




There were lots of Buddha faces on the walls.


And beautiful carvings.





































And the site is still in use.









The huge Elephant Wall.







And the huge Wall of the Lepers.












Monkeys in the forest on the way back to town.







Riverside stilt houses on the way back to town.
