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 !

a quilt for her "big girl" bed

Working on a quilt for Lucy. . . I'm totally copying this beautiful quilt from Denyse Schmidt , one of her "Pretty Square" designs that she created for Sarita Handa. It's basically a log cabin square with variations and randomness added in. . .

Look Mom!

Do those words scare you as much as they scare me? Here is one bad "Look Mom!" from this week: She was using markers to color some Mother's Day cards for the Grandma's, and I made the mistake of turning around to do dishes or something. Grandma Leen and Grandma Linda, this is the the other product of that little coloring session! Thank heavens for Crayola Washable Markers. . . Can you guess Lucy's favorite color? Orange. She picked out the these roses for me and then hubby arranged them: This was a good "Look Mom!". . . Mother's Day flowers and breakfast. Yummm.
