Things are getting more and more eccentric at Casa de la Swain. Changing styles in my textile work, falling in love again with painting and photography...and then there is the ever illusive quest for continuing creativity through working with Eric Maisel. Still on the road teaching, posting now at the Ragged Cloth Cafe and taking the pledge to keep handmaiden up to date.

Rita is a Comin' this Way

We are all glued to the weather and NOAA sites trying to track the path of another category 5...sure do wish that pesky global warming thing wasn't important. Although I live miles away, our weather guessers are predicting 6 to 8 inches of rain for us. Start building the ark...we are very flat land with no where for the water to go.....but counting my blessings...and keeping the Gulf Coast in my heart and thoughts.
Karey Bresenhan posted to Quilt Art this afternoon that all the quilts are being moved to safety. Her staff is evacuating and the offices will be closed until Monday at least. Hopefully by that time, we will know what Rita has done. Everyone keep good thoughts that Quilt Market and Festival are still on so we can find some beauty during this time of devastation.

My thoughts are with you. My husband has always insisted that we live several hundred feet above sea level. Floods are the pits and I feel so sorry for you all having to suffer Rita so soon after Katrina. Someone trying to tell you something?

This hurricane is really scary. The size is so enormous - looks like its filling the entire gulf. Fortunately, Texas has been doing a good job of preparation, but evacuating so many people is an unbelievable task. Mother Nature has certainly been asserting her power lately, and boy, are we learning to pay attention.

Keep safe, we are all hoping for the best and praying that Rita will weaken.
