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.

One Last Walk Down Collins

Took my daily walk for the last time down Collins...found a shop called All Aussie. How could I have missed this shop in all my touring? Dropped in a picked up small gifts for the family, stopped in the infamous 7-11 for enough diet coke with lime to last until I leave in the morning.
It isn't that I don't miss home but Melbourne is labeled "the most livable city" and I truly believe it. I got to see so much more this trip....special thanks to Caity (hugs) and Sharon Hunting (stay in touch,please).
Had a great time being "cheeky" with Gary Fitz-Roy of Expertise Events about coming back next year. They are a class act....run everything so well and treat us all like stars. Wishing a bittersweet good-bye to Australia Posted by Picasa
