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.

Three Ways You Are Stereotypically a Boy:
I am handy with tools and fix most of the things in our house, I would rather act than talk (hate overthinking), I could be a bachelor and be happy
