Julia Snyder came to town!

Well, here we are, the day after.

Julia Snyder is a tour de force.  We have a great time every time she comes to visit.  The fun, the laughter, the ideas.  Oh my!

We spur each other on and the creativity is just so much fun.  Wait till you see what we have cooked up.  I'm not divulging anything yet, but there are plans. Oh my, are there plans!

When asked to describe Julia's style of stitching I always say that she is more dimensional.  Yes, we all try to put dimension in our stitching.  I do it through perspective (gotta put that graphic design degree to use somehow).  Julia does it though dimensional stitches.  She uses tons of embroidery stitches to make things pop off the canvas. 

Look at this Brenda Stofft cat with the fluffy, fluffy collar.

Joan started the dragonfly collage.  Judging by the frog with the bullion toes I can only imagine where this is going.

Tena brought this giant farm scene to work out more details on.  She's listening intently to Julia's ideas but don't let that fool you, she has a sense of humor that is as dry as the desert.  Between her and Karla May we were in stitches!  Thanks for coming ladies.

As long as I have mentioned  Karla May, she delighted me by choosing one of my newer designs, Laptop Girls, to stitch.  This is going to be so cool.  The lime green background is this big open tent stitch pattern and girl on the left is going to have spiral ribbon roses on her skirt.   

Check out those roses! You know I love ribbon, and I love making spiral ribbon roses.  Can we bedazzle and ribbon rose everything?

Julia explained how to stack Lazy Daisy stitches. 

They are perfect on Palma's canvas from Sundance.

Don't you just love them?

Moore photos and goodies to follow.  But, gotta run now.  Thanks for visiting.
