Annita Magee

My weaving class went to Annita Magee's studio on Wednesday. Annita is a weaver who is also a very good tapestry artist. She showed us a bunch of her awesome tapestries and she sells some special yarns that some of us bought to use in our tapestries.
This is Annita^
This is one of her tapestries from Norway (I believe) the writing in he corner means seven brothers if I remember correctly
This is a cute tapestry based off of a small piece of a larger famous one with a girl and a unicorn
This is what she was currently working on.

here's a close-up, you can see where the yarn has gone around the warp (white up and down) threads. You can also see how tightly packed the yarn is.
