Still the next morning dawned bright and fair again.

Month 9: June 6

We're so Blue!

Last week, we told you that the FiS Designers are designing Blue's Clues patterns for a sick little boy. He's only four years old and is going to be having his second liver transplant surgery. His very awesome grandmother wants to make him a quilt from his favorite show. 

Since we designed these as fast as furiously as we could, we're asking for your help to test the patterns. If you make one of these blocks, please email us with any corrections or pattern problems. Your help with this extra special project is greatly appreciated! These blocks will be included on the Children's/Animated page under Blue's Clues as they are tested.

A number of you have asked if you can donate your tested Blue's Clues blocks either to the grandmother or to The Linus Connection,  the blanket making charity that Jennifer volunteers for. If you're interested in doing either, please email Jennifer.

Sesame Street Update
Michelle has drafted a number of new Sesame Street patterns that have not yet been tested. If you are interested in helping her out so we can get these new patterns posted to FiS as soon as possible, please email MichellePatterns available for testing are Prairie Dawn, Kami, Guy Smiley, Baby Bear, Barkley, Elmo's Fish Dorothy, Slimey, the Yip Yips and Ollie.
