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 DC

 Earlier in the month I spent 6 days visiting my sister in DC.  As usual I had to make the rounds of the museums.  Unfortunately most of the museums I visited didn't allow photographs, such as the Textile (which had a wonderful exhibit of Asian textiles) or the Renwick (furniture made by an African American in the mid 1800's)  The paintings in the gallery had been there for ages so that was allowed.
 As well as the permanent collection.  This statue looks like ice.
 There are statues everywhere you look in DC.  This was near the Canadian of my favorite buildings.
 The view of the Capital from the Newseum.  Photos of most of the exhibits also not permitted.
Another view from the same spot.

Valley Quilters of Newark Valley Annual Luncheon

 Every year the Valley Quilters of Newark Valley near Binghamton host a luncheon for quilters in the area.  I was honored to be asked to speak at the event.  In addition to a delicious lunch there were many quilts made by members of the group.
 I hadn't planned on selling it but Laura Teuchtler decided she had to have my latest jacket.
 So off it went to a new home.
 After lunch there was show and tell of course.
 This quilt's maker said she would never applique again.
 This quilt was made from a stamped piece the owner found at a yard sale for $5.  The thread cost $72 and it took her months to finish the quilt.
An adorable horse made from scraps.
