Thought I would answer all the kind inquiries thru our blog. So many of you have been so kind to write to see if all is well in our beautiful Naples! Yes we were threatened with a major storm and it always gets your attention. This time Tom and I thought we would escape it again - don't know why we felt that way or if it was even wise - but we felt certain we would escape. And escape we did - gusty winds and morning rain, heavy for a short time and soon the sun was out and all was back to normal here. Our hurricane shutters are remote controlled, so it is simple to push a button to lower them, and I never considered it - so that tells you how minor the storm was in our area. I was soon back in the studio working on my latest creation - have many new designs down on linen, or still in my head waiting to be drawn out - so I needed to get busy and finish off some of my work.
Annie is my constant companion in my studio and she is also my critic - and I wanted to show you how she weathered the latest storm. But, a reminder to me not to be so casual about weather - our cousin lives on the east coast of Florida and she called to get an idea of what was in store for her. I calmly told her - "nothing to worry about". Compared to some summer storms we had in Michigan - I told her this was a "nothing event." Well two days later, and amazingly she is still speaking to me. She called to report in - she lives in Port St. Lucie and they got clobbered beyond belief - bet she won't call me again for weather advice. All is well here and we are back to work - well Annie is taking a little nap as I hook.
