balzerdesigns Stitching my way from Boston to NYC! #TimGunn is sitting a few seats away from me. I'm too shy to tell him how much I love him on #ProjectRunway so I'll just take his words to heart as I stitch to #makeitwork even if I've got caveman-esque stitching skills. #myapologiestocavemen 3d

balzerdesigns Visited my old elementary school today. #memorylane I'd like to claim that being there brought out the kid in me and that's why I'm being such a goofball in this photo, but I'm pretty sure I'm always a goofball. #justabigkid #nevergrowup 5d
  •   craftwithmay I am forever about 12 years old. It's cool. 5d
  •   mardijoy217 Don't ever grow up! I'm sticking with 10. 5d

balzerdesigns I am continuing to work on my #mola (a kind of hand stitched piece created by the Kuna tribe). In a way I kind of love that I'm so bad at it. It means that there's so much to learn, so much room for improvement...that's really exciting, isn't it? Nothing like the rush of being a beginner! #whatjuliemade 2w
  •   sunflowerdesign It's a difficult technique and I like how you're just having a go. Bravo! So far it looks really good and knowing your work it will only get better. 2w
  •   pamgarrison Yes, well said! Love that phase of creative arts. 2w
  •   mockingbirdquilts I have several molas that I got in Panama, they are such intricate and wonderful creations. Have been wanting to try making one for a while. Please keep posting as your Mola progresses. It's looking great! 2w
  •   freesprout33 Thank you for answering my question on your blog! This is fascinating! 2w
