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.

I'm Still Here and Vintage Fashion Shopping Link!

The last few weeks have been hectic with filling in for multiple library coworkers when a monster of a cold kept some of the staff out for nearly a week, then traveling (and thankfully not catching the cold) the week after that, and then coming back to work gearing up for the Summer Reading Program which promises to be quite an exciting and busy event!  

For the next few months, August first is the last day of the SRP, my posts may not fall on regular days. You've probably noticed that happening already!! I will try my hardest to still post twice a week! Without further ado, here is Tuesday's post on Thursday. A little less craft oriented too, but I don't think anyone will mind much. 

Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful book series. If you have never read it you NEED to. The first two movies are also lovely, the Continuing Story...well, it didn't follow the books and was just not my cup of tea. Though, it was really neat to see Megan Follows, Jonathan Crombie, and Schuyler Grant all grown up. 

Because of my love for the books and films, I liked the Anne of Green Gables Facebook page. Which often posts links to the Shop at Sullivan website which is affiliated with Sullivan Entertainment, the production company that made the Anne movies. 

Right now on the Shop at Sullivan Site they are selling costumes that are similar to the Anne era and some film worn costumes from other Sullivan Entertainment series like Wind at My Back. Which is also a very good series you should try to see! It is so much fun to see all of the beautiful vintage looking clothes they are offering right now for fairly decent prices!
