Here is a group picture of my class in Manistee:
A really terrific bunch of gals...we all had so much fun!
I definitely won the prize for bringing the most wool!
During my stay in Manistee, I was also very lucky to be able to visit the studio of Evelyn Sorenson. She is a 95 year old fiber artist who creates the most beautiful tapestries that you have ever seen. She works them in her own special technique; the backgrounds are loosely woven mohair yarns and the embellishments are embroidered on the woven yarns with more mohair. Most of the tapestries are quite large. I'm sure you will agree that they are absolutely incredible (Buckle your seat belt, I took lots of pictures):
It's hard to pick a favorite but I think the last one might be the one I like the best. Which is your favorite?
A heartfelt thanks to all of you who wrote such warm and touching words of sympathy about Nokie. I still expect to see her when I look out the window. She will always be in my heart.
