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 D.C.

After a few days respite to unpack my bags it was time for a trip to my sister's house in D.C. This lion is in a park honoring fallen police officers.

I love this carving on the front of the Building Museum nearby. My sister's office is in a Courthouse right around the corner.

My first stop was the Dragon Display at the Textile Museum. I couldn't resist snapping a photo of these molas.

Of course I had go take photos on the Mall.
