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.

Trip to Oaxaca - The End

The gorgeous Soledad Basilica is located a few blocks west of the Zocalo. The Virgin of Soledad, the patron of Oaxaca, sits atop the altar with her five pound solid gold crown encrusted with 600 diamonds. There are beautiful statues of angels floating high on the walls.
There was a service going on so I wasn't able to take inside photos.
Back in the Zocalo a local concert was going on.
And waiters were standing outside their restaurant hoping to lure in customers.

Back at the hotel guests were still attending Spanish School or seeing the sights.
In between the two sections of the hotel was a tv room. Almost all the channels were in Spanish.
And a tiny kitchen where I could store my sodas or heat a cup of tea.
One of the two back courtyards.
The courtyard right outside my door.
My room. Small, good lighting, comfy bed, super clean and wonderful bathroom with really hot water.
