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 !

Next project, please!

Ok, I spent an hour in JoAnn's and came out with these fabulous fabrics. . . they're for a little throw quilt for a friend's birthday. Trouble is, this one might be hard to give away, I love it so!

All wrapped up and ready for little Gabriel. . .

Denyse Schmidt Quilt-a-long

Based on "A Day at the Beach," this is actually a baby blanket rather than the full-size beach blanket (and without the brilliant stone-holding corners). It's only about 45 x 45", which of course made it pretty quick to do. I stayed close to Denyse's color choices (because I love them so!) but went with browns instead of blacks to make it a little gentler for my friend's new baby boy. (She's a hip architect who specializes in green building materials, so I had the challenge of making something eco friendly and not cutesy. . . this colorful, all-cotton quilt was perfect!) In fact, I can't tell you how much I love the way this blanket turned out. . . I make a lot of baby blankets for friends and this is probably my favorite. I have enough material to do another, so I'll start soon, but the next one will be opposite, lime green and brown on the front with the turquoise dip-dyed fabric on the back. And maybe I'll keep that one! My modern-asthete-h
