I’ve been traveling and it isn’t as easy to write an extensive blog each day. Depending on the speed of the internet in my hotel it often takes time to add the images.
So here we are 2 months later and now I can add the images I missed.
I’ll begin with Houston and I’ll add the few images I took of the Van Gogh Cherrywood Challenge 2017. I think there were 465 submissions and each and every one I saw was stunning.
I’ve been trying to post both my trip images and the rest of the Houston images. I have so many more to share, so this is todays gift.
This category is the hardest to photograph, but please take a look at the detail in these quilts. The quilting is amazing.
I don’t have time to add the entire amount of images I have in this category, so little time.
The show opened officially for the full day today and I’m told it was absolutely packed. Around noon, 2 million people descended on Houston for the Astros trade. The town turned Orange, I sort of thought it was for me, the roads and parks turned a bright shade of orange.
The show opened officially last night and I wasn’t able to get images of the excitement and rush to get into the event because I was out at dinner and then I had the privilege to attend the Opera at the convention centre.
It’s a tradition, people line up, with lines winding down the street for a considerable distance waiting for the doors to open. So today the convention centre will be a bus of excitement and I hope to have some time at lunch to visit the winning quilts.
It’s interesting photographing the quilts, you hear so many different comments. One lady came up to me, she saw me taking a lot of photos. “Getting ideas for your class” she said.. Little does she know that I don’t need any more ideas, they flow far too fast and then there is the ‘pam’ signature…. none of these honey.

I will take photos in sections and share them. These images are not for publication beyond this blog and I ask that you respect the right of the creator.
It appears that the year has moved at a faster pace this year than any previous year. Of course that’s nonsense, but it’s the way I perceive it. It’s not my age, nor my mental capabilities it’s the experiences and adventures that have moved so swiftly, one blending into another creating a seamless flow. I’m a bit of a Pollyanna. I err on the positive, but of course the negative rears its head at times only to be beaten back into submission with an imaginary hammer. It’s when I lay my head down and the darkness envelopes me in a very comforting way that the mind wanders and composes these blogs. This mornings walk in the dark was about:- Flexibility. That’s the key word you need if you live the life I live. But I chuckle as I reflect on being told “The problem with you is that you are inflexible” by a most inflexible employer earlier this year. I have to be flexible to be up at 4.00 am preparing to travel for the …
