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.

A Few Views of Our Journey

First our booth for festival. We could set up today after 4 p.m. so while I was teaching until 5 p.m. Christy was hauling in stuff for the booth. As soon as I got out of class, I dashed down to the booth and we finished by 7 p.m. Not bad, right?
Of course, we had to include our home away from home and two lovely pictures of us after a long market and a long day.
The winners were announced tonight but because we had to get the booth done, I have nothing to report.
Tomorrow will be the worst day of the week. I have to teach until 5 p.m. and then dash to the booth to work preview from 5 until 10m p.m. Ugh! Thursday will be better since all we have to do is work the booth. Also daughter in law Kelly is arriving Thursday night to help Christy work the booth Friday while I teach an all day design class. Kisses to both of them for all the help.
We had a decent market and keeping our fingers crossed for festival. Come by and say hi if you have the chance. We got to keep the same space for festival...booth 250...so we didn't have to move out just re-configure for more stuff. We are only slightly dingy at this point..will keep you posted as the week progresses. Posted by Picasa

Hi Gabrielle -
I took your Borrowed Tools class in Marietta, GA years ago and just discovered your blog. I also have your book! I'm recovering from surgery and going through the Artful Quilters Web Ring and am amazed at all the talent out there. Just wanted to say hi and thanks for posting stuff on your blog. I love to read about other quilt artists.
