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.

It's in the Can

A tired director avoiding the camera....I keep telling him it is the talent that is supposed to be pampered but as you can see I'm getting know where with that. The good news it is all re-shot in the proper aspect ration and from the picture below ready to edit.
The plan is that I walk in the door from Paducah on Sunday, 30 April with a master waiting on me to start burning and shipping. I will let you know how that works out.
What I find amazing is how much concentration that it takes to film, know what you are saying, and hit the mark. I get better every time but still there will be some great outtakes on this one.
Today I am shipping another order to my distributor and a few orders from the website. Once that is done all I have to think about is how much fun to have in Paducah...ya hoo! I have my lucky hundred ready for the casino and fabric in mind to buy. Most of all, I can't wait to see the quilts....what a treat for the senses to see all those beautiful quilts in one place.
Of course, there will be some food that is not on the diet and maybe a cosmo or two.....ahhhh! a perfect busman's holiday. Naturally, I am taking the laptop so I will try to stay in touch as often as possible with all the doings at the convention center. Hope you all have as much fun next week as I plan on having....looking forward to seeing some of you there...that means you Karoda.
Terri, to answer your question about the box. It holds the camera for overhead shots so you can see me in the process of working the exercises. What it gives us is a three shot....we are using two cameras to create the view of three. Clear as mud, no? Posted by Picasa
