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.

Coulda, Should, Woulda

I could have been posting to my blog daily but not! After Houston, got the studio and office in order. Shipped out all the orders to customers and then the paper work started. Purchasing tickets for Road2Ca, rapid emails to Australia and general "ugh" office work.
I coulda been in the studio painting, quilting, whatever but not! I was so exhausted after Houston that I have been sitting eating bon bons, reading and watching really bad t.v.
I woulda been more careful getting out of the bathtub but had placed my wet wash cloth on the side of the tub and fell very hard on my right side....eeoow! So I am wounded, tried quilting but even that hurts.
Last but not least I am green with envy over the work Mel is producing while I am still contemplating where I am going from here. All that said I'm back...couldn't get rid of me that easy.
I would post some pictures but my computer has suddenly decided not to recognize the usb cable on my camera...will it never end. This must be resolved immediately but frankly, I am enjoying the time off with sweet Ronnie with no deadlines looming and being a lazy bum. You should try it occasionally, it is good for the body and the soul.
Miss you all...be back soon.

It's Mercury in Retrograde, Gabrielle. The machines will all be having migraines for a few more days.
Come the weekend a little hard boot will cure everything.

Welcome back. Keep eatin' them bonbons.

I am thrilled to hear even this peep from down your way. Don't get up, really, I'll get it myself.

And when you roll over, mind the cat.
