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 - Kumbalgarh Fort Part 1

Back on the road to Udaipur. Its a wonderful green area full of farms and small tribal villages.
Water wheel on a local farm


Walking between towns.
The extremely impressive Kumbalgarh Fort.

This is supposedly the most formidible of the 32 forts built in the 15th century.
Protected by a series of walls and bastions, it was only successfully besieged once, when a confederacy led by Akbar poisoned the water supply.



The walls seem to go on for miles.
The tomb of Rana Kumbha, the builder, murdered by his eldest son and his grandson, poisoned by his brother-in -aw.

There are lots of temples scattered around the grounds.
