The alarm fractured the darkness with its insistency. I woke with a bolt and fumbled for the phone. The piercing noise. “Flash flood warning until 5.30 am” it displayed on the screen, lights flashing and noise pulsating. I turned it off and blinked to focus my eyes at the time. 2.35 am it stated. I laid back on the pillow, darkness and peace restored and I was relieved to have been woken from the complicated dream I was having. My brain functions well upon waking, its’s a rare gift and I was able to begin my waking hours with ‘Houston Happiness’ for yet another day.
There is indeed a storm raging outside, lightning and rain and as I look down to the ground below there is water over the service road outside the convention centre. However, one is insulated from the elements in a huge multi story hotel with air-conditioning and sound proof walls and windows.
So today I continue sharing some of the photos I took on the previous day. I will say that you the viewer are getting a more than biased view of the exhibits because I photograph only the Quilts that I have an interest in. I celebrate the creator, and marvel at their ingenuity and skill as quilters.
Please honor the creators of these wonderful quilts by not using these images from my web page for purposes other than viewing.
