We've lost another treasure from the needlework world this past week. Judy Souliotis has passed away.
I took this class from her through SNS a number of years ago, before I started blogging. It exhibits those characteristics that made her designs so compelling: the elegance of her design line, her unerring sense of color, and her choice of the most appropriate stitches for each area.
Her directions were extremely well-written and made it obvious that she believed that her students were well able to live up to her standards. While I never took a f2f class from her, I was delighted to stitch this design and to be a "ghost" in some of her classes. We had mutual friends, so we shared meals at Callaway and various ANG seminars while she was still traveling to teach. She was always a delightful companion with a sparkling smile.
I will miss knowing that she's in the world.
