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 India & Nepal - Changu Narayan

Perched on a narrow ridge to the north of Bhaktapur, the beautiful and historical temple, Changu Narayan is a living museum of carvings from the 4th to the 9th centuries. On the way back to Kathmandu we drove up the narrow winding road and began the walk through town toward the temple.

Daily life goes on despite the influx of tourists. However, this is probably the least visited site in the Valley because of its location.
Doing the daily wash.
Typical architecture.

Unfortunately at this point Barbara became quite ill and we had to return to the hotel in Kathmandu.

Of course there are the usual vendors selling to tourists along the way.

A quick glimpse of the mountains.

Some animals in the yard along the path.

The Changu Narayan Temple...if we had made it to the top of the hill. It is a World Heritage Site of course. Its guarded on all sides by mythical beasts.

The front door.
