I think I'm depressed or something

I don't know what exactly it is...maybe anxiety. I just don't feel "comfortable" anymore. I'm not sleeping and when I do, I have nightmares. I know it's not just me. The level of stress around me is nearly tangible. Everybody is really concerned about the future Hurricane Rita.

Here's a picture of some of the current computer models.

Yellow, Purple, and Pink would be really bad. Devastatingly bad. And she's expected to be a Cat 3 by Wednesday.

Anyway, the people who were promised to be allowed to move back to New Orleans, may not be able to. The Hurricane Experts are asking Nagin to hold off on letting people back. We'll have to see, he's supposedly considering heeding their advice.

I did have some stitching finishes over the last few days.

Here's the beginning of my Band Sampler Round Robin. I chose a beach theme. The beach house and palm trees are from Brightneedle's Key West Sampler. I had to use the DMC conversion, which wasn't the greatest since I don't have access to Gumnuts. If I ever do it again I'm going to have to check out Vikki Clayton's to see if she has a conversion.

This is Pine Mountain's Princess Pillow. This one was fast! it only took a day to do.

I did I-L on Robin's Alphabet Round Robin. She chose Birds of a Feather's Sally Spencer Sampler

Next up is Deanna's Floral Round Robin. I hope she likes what I picked out!

I love that it says to ignore it if anything causes confusion! LOL Boobs. I can only imagine the stress you're under. I remember what it was like to feel like you'd barely caught your breath before another hurricane hit. {{{{{hugs}}}}}

GOrgeous stitching. I can see how you would be feeling like you are under the circumstances. Just try to take it one day at a time. If the anxiety gets too bad, please call your doctor.

Hang in there kiddo. You most definitely have more than enough reason to be anxious with all that has been going on and the threat of more. Try to take it easy and maybe find some time for yourself if possible.

Your projects are absolutley beautiful. I wish wish wish I had your patience and talent.

If it's any consolation, my money's on the red line. I don't foresee anything that would cause Rita to turn north that soon.

Hang in there Autumn. I think the storm will head towards Texas this time. Its been on the news all day today here because we will probably see some of the wind and rain from it and it looks like it won't head northward for a while. We already have gotten some of the outter bands. I will be SO happy when this season is over!

I love your stitching Autumn! The sampler is beautiful, and the pillow is just too cute!
