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.

Elephant Ride Kanchanaburi Thailand

After our cooling rafting we were off to the Elephant Camp in a nearby town. You mount your elephant from a very handy platform.

Our mahout said he was 16 years old. As you may notice apparently you don't wear shoes when riding on an elephant.

Michael lucked out and had an elephant all to himself.

A herd of cows near the camp.

We rode for almost an hour with stops for breaks. Back at the camp.

After our ride it was possible to buy snacks for the elephants.

We had to post for the obligatory photo of course.

This trip has been absolutely fascinating so far. Creme de la creme is seeing you sitting on the elephant! The stay in the floating hotel was kinda different, huh? Those are the special memories.
