I’m so EXCITED. I really am into Project Runway this season. I haven’t been for a while so it’s great to come back to a show and enjoy the episodes so much.

I’ve watched about half of the shows. I got hooked on Michelle when she was scorned for that ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC BEAUTIFUL CHIC AND LUMINOUS

pant and tee shirt by the judges. I would wear this.

We had Patricia making a shift dress that didn’t fit with leather fringe that didn’t fringe going down the front. It looked like maybe 20 minutes at the sewing machine and no minutes at the design board.

And then we had the perfection that is Michelle. And Patricia went on to Paris.

Luckily for the judges they did not send Michelle home. There would have been immense outcry of foul from all of the Project Runway fans. I do not see what Heidi sees in Patricia. I know she can do textile manipulation but then again I thought this was fashion design???????????? Am I wrong?????????????

Tonight we will see what they have all done with their $10K and their time to actually create something. I am looking forward to this. I’ll just betcha Patricia has made sack dresses out of weird fabric. After all, when you go to Paris and are only inspired by graffiti ……………..

I came from a family who made things. My father was a carpenter with a passion for making furniture. My mother sewed, crocheted, cooked and made a home on a shoestring. My grandmothers both quilted. As a teenager, I found batik through a wonderful art teacher who allowed me the freedom to batik yards of fabric. I then cut them up into a pattern and wore the item I made. I was ecstatic. I painted in my teens and twenties and my parents gracefully supplied me with oil paints and turpentine. When I needed an easel, my father took me to the shop where he worked and made me one. When he found unused and unwanted canvas, he brought it home and stretched it for me with wood from his shop at home. I was indulged at every step of the way. I wasn't ever told that I could not do something or that I should not do something. I was given freedom to chose my path in life. A blessed life I have lived, for sure.
