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.

Artist Relocation Program

I should have taken more pictures of the section of Paducah dedicated to the artist relocation program. They are doing a fabulous job bringing in artist of all types....and the studio spaces are fabulous. If we make it back today, I will try to do better. In the meantime, here is Caryl Fallert's new studio and two new pieces of her work.

I am green with envy over this space....close to 8000 sq. ft. with a residence in back. It couldn't happen to a nicer person. Caryl has worked hard her entire career....brought machine quilting to the Best of Show for the first time and
maintained a career as an artist while having a full time job as a flight attendant.
Congratulations, deserve this beautiful space.

This seems to be the place to be. Now, I know that I posted that I wanted to move near Gerrie (on her blog), but maybe I want to move here. I also want to move to the east coast and to Canada. Hmmm. I'll have to stay put for now and keep reading your tours, Gabrielle.

Thanks for posting the pictures. I just got back and posted some pictures also. Now that I have seen yours, I will try and not duplicate the ones you have shown. I was too tired tonight to do them all. Loved seeing your leaves again. I always have loved that quilt!
