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 Brief View of Tamps's Applique Society Conference

Two photos from the Borrowed Tools class...showing before and after colored pencil. They had a kids in kindergarten...but what great work they did.

Just a quick shot of the flora we were surrounded with in Tampa....who wouldn't be inspred but these colors and forms.
Last but not least, ladies hard at work on reverse applique. We had a great time. The conference was held at the Grand Hyatt in Tampa....great food and an excellent cosmo. I tried to restrain myself but one or two before dinner was so refreshing in the warm Florida sun.

I read last night at Deb's blog, A Stitch in Time, that you had a new post...never did I expect to see four! And as always, I enjoyed reading your perspective and words.
