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 Jan-Feb 2013- Phalodi

Now it was time for one last look around my lovely hotel before the trip to Phalodi.  I loved this Lion Chair althugh it didn't look all that comfy.
The sitting area didn't look all that comfy either.
There were several lovely courtyards.

The door to my suite.
Then I was off to Phalodi, a nowhere large town between Jaisalmer and Bikaner.  I had booked a room in this lovely old haveli now Heritage Hotel.  As usual it was a prepaid, guaranteed reservation through a booking agency I had used without problems for years.  When I arrived they insisted THAT THEY HAD NO RECORD OF MY RESERVATION AND THAT THE HOTEL WAS FULL!
MAD!!!YOU HAVE NO IDEA!  They shuttled  me off to this "lovely" hotel named the Chetnya Palace (there were no other "nice" hotels in town.  A Palace it was not.  Notice no sheets on the bed.
And the garbage in the hall.
The view from my window.
The stain on the bed cover.
Some of the wiring.

No, I didn't try to use this fan.  And the restaurant looked so dirty I didn't dare eat there.  The purpose of my trip was to view the Siberian Cranes in a nearby town.  And when I went to look for the birds of course they weren't there!

Rather disappointing - Phalodi.

Like Judi Dench, you'd stumbled into "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" movie and you didn't know it! However, in the interesting movie, the hotel does redeem itself in the end.
