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.

When Last Seen She Was In the Studio

Could it have been so long since I wrote anything? Bad blogger! However, that doesn't mean I haven't been working. Spent the past few days playing with paint, learning what is what and deciding on designs. See below a few of the learning how to do this to the real stuff. Also, while painting managed to print all those boxes of brochures to go to a distributor. Charles and Christy are coming over tonight to start folding.....they don't know what they are in for.

Quilting has also been coming along but not enough to show yet. Still working on the long section of Sea Stones but progress is being made. Quilting at night; painting in the day...better light. However, I have plans for Sea Stones as an entry in January so I better pick up the pace. Have faith I have been known to finish a quilt in two weeks.....I was younger then, but when motivated things happen quickly.

I am suffering from Art Quilt Tahoe withdrawl. They are having too much fun without me...sigh! In my heart, I know I have too much work to be there but a cosmo with the girls would be good right now. When in a time crunch, I tend to do nothing but work...not take enough time off and end up totally exhausted. Am trying to pace myself better this time. Ronnie forced me out of the house last night to the gym. I really wanted to stay home and work but he was right. It did a world of good to get the old body moving.....of course, I am sore today but that will pass.

Guess this is just nattering so I will stop now...just wanted to keep in touch....back to work.

I am so excited to see the progress of this fabric line. Amazing. Um... Gabrielle, have you considered having those brochures professionally printed?
