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.

A Walk Around Downtown Key West

We took a walk around town to take in the sights. One man had quite a menagerie on the sidewalk (including an albino python) and charged $3 to take a photo.
Statues outside the Art Gallery.

A statue outside the gift shop of the Mel Fisher Museum.

Anchors outside the Mel Fisher Museum.

Fake cannons outside the Mel Fisher Museum. We found the whole town WAY overpriced...with the little over an hour Conch Train ride at $29 each, small museums at $12 each, four hours rent on a little electric scooter at $99 (plus a fee everytime you stopped to park it) We opted to just walk around instead.

The beautiful grounds of the Audubon House.

Audubon House.

One of the better shops.

Most of the shops were full of tourist gimicks, tee shirts and high priced jewelry.
