Let's peel back these layers!

juliannlaw Here is a closeup of the endpapers in my debut picture book, THE WORKD’S LONGEST SOCK. I work digitally in Adobe Photoshop but the program doesn’t do it all for me! I knit all the pixels by hand! Haha! I do have things I do to help me work quickly and efficiently, though, like using layers. Here you get to see me take off those layers one by one till we are back at nothing but a background. The World's Longest Sock is now available on  Amazon ,  Barnes and Noble ,  Target , or wherever you  buy books !

Bib project

So another fun project I did while on bed rest was to embellish these little bibs from Ikea. . . they come in a 5-pack (I still have one to finish, a robin) for a very reasonable price and they were just screaming for a little something personal to be added to them. This actually started as a project to do with my friend Kate who was on bed rest at home a couple weeks before me. . . I went over to her place to keep her company and brought bags of embroidery floss and fleece (fleece edges won't fray so you don't have to worry about turning the edges under) and we went about doing some free-style appliqué, as I call it. We didn't get too far that day, we each finished only one, but the good thing is it was all bagged up with the needed materials so when I ended up in the hospital unexpectedly, it wasn't hard for hubby to assemble and bring in for me to work on.

P.S. Kate ended up having her little Norah just down the hall from me in the hospital two weeks before I had Lucy. It was so fun to wheel down and see them. . . and we just know that Norah and Lucy are going to be the best of friends.
