Mary Rhopa, St. Augustine, Florida. Mary is an award winning fiber artist who uses repurposed fabrics and a lot of hand stitching. Her trees fascinate me! I wish I had my camera with me. Mary created, I think, 30 8x10" trees - each and every one of them different and ever so beautiful. I loved getting into the ladder stitch - the hand stitching!!! The tree trunk was twisted seams of the old garments.
Oh, Mary gave the workshop at the Piecemaker's Quilt Guild, St. Augustine, Florida.
