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 !

Some new baby quilts with a retro feel. . .

Here are some new baby quilts I've been working on. The first one is for my old buddy Sarah Lyle and her new little baby boy, Jonas. The backing fabric is a Michael Miller disco dot that I've been dying to use. And yes, that's a real Herman Miller rocker, straight off of eBay for our baby nursery! The next quilt gets its fun puckered texture from the hand quilting. The center square fabric is from an old 70's shirt I found at a second-hand store. . . a good way to find some amazing retro fabric.
