New Name and Place

Oscar Wilde wrote that Life imitates art. In this case, my art seems to be imitating life. I felt like it was time for a name change on the blog.  For the past few years I've been The Wizard of Odds and Ends. I liked that name a lot. My best friend thought of that name! It was just time for a change. Slightly more descriptive but still general enough that I can make a variety of posts on my blog.

I figured I like to crochet and sew household things or clothing and accessories with a vintage elegance and I recently got married and moved so I'm trying to figure out a whole new "home" sort of thing. The posts will be pretty similar to what you've seen here but I'll be posting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and there will be some more DIY and Tutorial posts.



You can now find me posting regularly over at Elegant Homestead. If you've enjoyed it over here, I would love for you to continue following along over at my new place. There may be some minor changes going on there over the next few months with layout but it is up and running and there's already a new post!

 Hope to see you there!

What's in a Name?

I feel like I need a name for Tuesday posts because "Favorite Things Friday" has a name. It really it that and my unusual need to be pretty organized which has turned into more of an organized chaos as of late.

Anywho...

I'm beginning to accumulate my WIP pile again. I have the gargantuafghan, still nearly done, but not quite and these three beauties. Well, two. The two blue-green color projects are from pattern.

 At the top there is the lovely Glitz at the Ritz shawl which is slightly more finished than the last time I posted about it. Middle is the Kerry Shrug. Both patterns can be found on Ravelry. The bottom picture is a result of last night's efforts to crochet a realistic (for the most part) looking bluebird. I tried in both 2 and 3 dimensions. There are still a lot of changes to be made to both patterns. 


Oh, I almost forgot...I am so excited for the Medieval themed Summer Reading Program at the library! The main reason why I am so excited is because my boss asked me to sew a canopy from a pattern she bought. I get to sew at work! Which, in a way, this means I'll get paid for sewing. That makes me a professional seamstress, right? Ha, maybe not! I think I'll forgo that title until I see how this canopy turns out.
