I have the great pleasure of staying at the home of Ruth Walkers' parents while I am attending the Midwest Felting Symposium. Each time I am there, I am welcomed with open arms, as though we are family. Their hospitality and great kindness toward me is much appreciated Each time I leave there is sadness. I always look forward to my time with them. Ruth. oh my, I always look forward to my time with her. She is amazing, beautiful, talented, kind, open woman who plays well with others. I am just happy to be among them!
