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.

Fish 'n Chips

The most important event of the day. It is official I have now consumed fish 'n chips from a fish 'n chips shop. I really had calamari and prawns...yum. But it was definitely the high point of the day.

Tomorrow the festivities start. We deliver our quilts and attend the evening cocktail party....followed by the opening ceremonies and introductions and a lecture by yours truly on the luxurious life of traveling and teaching. Will try to take some pictures of the party.

During my vacation time, I have been contemplating two books that I recently finished. You know what that means: more blathering to follow. However, I won't spoil the mood of a fun day in beautiful, warm out tomorrow..... both books have chapters addressing/craftsmanship and skill. Just too close to bed time to drag out the soap box.

On a personal note: thanks Caity for the welcome...sorry you won't be here and Sharon, it was so good to hear from you. I will miss your company. I still see the Preston exhibit in my head from time to time. Glad you are working full time but my trip will be the lesser without you. Posted by Picasa
