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.

Two posts in one day...a miracle

Just because I haven't been quilting or painting or doing much but sitting around watching bad tv, doesn't mean there still isn't a little creativity spark at work. When the tv gets to much to bare, I have been honing my Photoshop skills.
The first photo is the view looking up from our front porch. The second is from a Simple Still Life post last year that I have reworked to heighten the ink in the bottle. Can stitching be far behind?
When you find yourself stuck on a piece or just not motivated or possibly with little time or inclination, try working in a different media. You never know what ideas it might spark for a quilt....or maybe you will love the new media and add it to your creative cycle.
Promise that's all for today. Got to put the final touches on the studio: light, moving out the ironing board, etc.

Great pics. How did you manage to get more than one pic on your post? I have to go through several painstaking steps to manage that. I'd love to know how you did it.
