Well friends, the time has come for me to move on. In case you hadn't noticed, I closed my etsy shop for an extended vacation about a month ago. This summer has been so busy and life is so full of other things that need to be made or sewn or knitted, that making things to sell didn't fit in anymore. I'm not sure when or if I will get back to Junie None Designs, but I haven't closed the shop officially yet. I can't quite bear to do that. I have had TONS of fun finishing up my scads of personal projects - so far I've finished a knitted cowl, basted a quilt, and figured out how to free-motion quilt on my ancient Bernina. All things I've been wanting to do but haven't had time to because of finishing up custom orders. Thank you all so very very much for buying my little hand made items - each sale and custom order was an absolute thrill for me.

I started this blog as a way to promote my shop and it kind of morphed into a chronicle of the crazy things we get up to here on the farm. And I've loved it - it has been a good exercise in finding the positive side of everything that happens, even the boring, gross, and downright terrible. And I'm not going to stop writing. I'm just moving. You can keep reading about my attempts at farming on my new blog, The General Farmer. I really REALLY hope you join me over there. It is weird starting a new blog - it feels like walking into a room full of strangers after spending years in a room of people who've known all your deepest secrets. Well, maybe not that dramatic, but you know what I mean. I'd love to hear some familiar voices over there. Thanks so much for reading all my silly stories and I'll see you at the farm!
