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 Panama, Part 1

 Spring means its time for my more or less annual trip to the San Blas Islands off Panama to purchase molas.  The lodge where I stayed had a gorgeous (spoiled) pet parrot. 
 Garbage on the next lot which was part of the view from the lodge balcony (as well as the ocean)
 A young boy fishing (actually bailing  at the moment) from a boat near the lodge
 A typical dugout canoe
 A house had burned down here and not been replaced leaving an open area
 Allmost every island has a school where the children learn in Spanish.  Many of the older people don't speak it.
 This is what you get for $90 a night.  That's tape on the floor between the boards.
 The toilets and cold shower are downstairs.

The inland view from the top floor of the lodge.
