Fun at the Farm this weekend! We love "The Blueberry Bash". My oldest actually had the best time - he kept repeating how much fun he was having. The weather was lovely and everyone was getting along nicely. Favorites included blueberry picking, feeding the goats, riding the tractors, a wagon ride around the farm, and watching the baby chickens. Not much knitting today - but well worth it.

Tuesday was the last day of school and I finally finished my quilt! This was a 64 in by 64 in quilt that I made for my son's 2nd grade teacher. All the kids in the class made drawings of themselves and the teacher, I scanned the drawings into the computer, and used spoonflower.com to make the fabric.

This is a quilt I made in 2009. A little too stiff because of it's tiny car quilt size, but I still liked it. I based it on the sheet set that the recipient chose on her baby registry. I love adding applique to my quilts. By the way, this post is for Crazy Mom Quilts benefit. It is not as random as it seems!

Wow! I sent one of my first patterns to a test knitter and I would say my grade was a D-! The pattern wasn't even good enough to start knitting. I really appreciate the time the person spent to be so critical and I learned a lot from the review. But...OUCH! Big lesson learned about what I put out there!

I think I will give this knitwear design Thing a go! I'm a little obsessed with it actually. Every image I see is transformed to a garment of some sort in my mind. I'm starting to get test knitters now and am working on a number of items at once. I'm really interested in color, baby clothes, and hats. My gauge is pretty variable, so I'm having a little bit of a tough time. I'll keep you posted!
