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 - Nagarkot& The Himalayas

No trip to Nepal is complete without seeing the Himalayas at some point. While you can get a glimpse in Patan and sometimes by the Tundikhel Parade Ground in Kathmandu, the best local views are around 30 miles to the East. One of these towns is Nagarkot.
We headed up there after Bhaktapur through beautiful views on winding country roads through farms and small villages.

Our first stop to look at the views was the Hotel View Point which was aptly named with several high terraces for the best views.
Of course, there are dozens of hotels all around the rim, and those with views, of course, commanding the highest rates.

You can just barely see the snow blowing off the top of the mountain in the center.

The terrace of the hotel where we ate lunch, the Club Himalaya Resort. Unfortunately it was too windy to eat outside.
