Final reflections . . . one more look at just how large the George Brown Arena is. Across the street there is a little park with a small lake.
I can see either of these as a subject of an art quilt.
Here's the view from one of the arena's outdoor balconies.
Another new hotel is going up.
I thought this interesting building had the look of a modern quilt.
On Thursday night we went with two ladies I had met on a quilt retreat in Tuscany in 2010 and their friends to have dinner at a restaurant at the Aquarium. It was truly beyond awesome. We had an early reservation, so we were lucky to be seated only a few feet from the giant central tank.
When I returned home, I told Valerie all about it. She appeared to be listening intently especially when I told her how big the enormous tank was.
We flew home on Saturday. Don't you just love having a window seat!
I urge any quilters reading this to definitely go to Houston some time for the International Quilt Festival.
Note to self for future reference: next time plan to arrive on Wednesday for the preview evening and leave on Sunday. Also, consider taking one of the all-day trips.
