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 Very Quick Update

Short and sweet since I have to meet my ride in in few minutes. I made it out of DFW 45 minutes late due to de-icing. We were apparently one of the few flight that got off that day as the cancellation rate kept rising. Thinking all was well, landed in supposedly sunny California to 39 degree F. weather. It isn't just cool; it is downright wear layers and a coat cold. Hopefully, warmer weather is on the way.
The judging is going well. It is always a privilege to get to see the quilts so closely. Cindy Walters and Bonnie Browning, my fellow judges, and I are having a great time together. ....and the show staff is superior...well organized and tons of fun.
Will post more later...have tomottow off. For now your roving reporter is in good spirits and eager to get to work. Just a little concerned that Sweet Ronnie isn't freezing or trapped in the house with no food.

I am heeding your warning and bringing shoes with sox, leather coat, turtlenecks and sweaters. That ought to insure warmer weather.
See you tomorrow at din din.
