PROJECT RUNWAY SEASON 4

I have never been devoted to any television program. I am loyal to some and other I care less about. But even the shows that I watch loyally can be dismissed without a second thought. But I am devoted to Project Runway.

This show starts out with 15 designers’ ends with 3 who will design 12 outfits for a Fashion show at Bryant Park in NYC. The judges, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, Heidi Klum ( who is also the host of the show ) And a guest judge which changes each episode. And we must not forget TIM! I love the way he talks.

So far 2 episodes in and I can’t wait for the next one. I know I have watched these 2 episodes at least 6 times (Thanks to BRAVO TV) and each time I see something a little different.

I have been a seamstress of sorts for over 20 years. However any photos of past accomplishments were lost in a fire of the family home several years ago. I have contacted several people that I have made gowns for in the past in the hope of rebuilding my photo album.

I am reminded and inspired to start again! I do not want to become a rich person from the garments, quilts, soft furnishing, curtains and such that I make. I just want to be the best I can be. Accomplished!

While watching the show I watch how the constants construct the garments. How true the actual garments is to the sketch drawn. How they convey ideas into an article of clothing. How to pitch your design to an up and coming fashion icon.

I actually have a note book with me and make notes as I go along. This notebook will end up getting lost in the sea of notebooks that I have. Notebooks, with dates I constructed something for myself and what adjustments I had to make for it to look right. Notebooks, of things that I actually gave up and because I fixed them too much. Once it was a gown but the hem was not straight. So I cut it so straighten it but it still was not straight, so I cut it again, and again soon it was a mini dress that just looks horrible because it was meant to be a gown. Or a jacket pocket whose welt is not quite right so the fix it meant now it had patch pockets. Notebooks, with designs drawn to perfection but wrong fabric used to complete the look. I keep them all and look at them from time to time and remind myself what I should do and what I should not do.

While watching the show you have the people whose attitude you just cannot stand but give them there props when it comes to the art work. So far Christian is all talk he is so annoying. He either needs to truly produce something that knocks the wind out of us or just shut up.

I love Romi’s work. The gown is simple beautiful. It looks like it would feel like a goddess to wear that dress.

Elisa and Sweet Pea should have won the second challenge. It looked like something you would find in Steve and Barry’s.

Victorya’s dress and vest, I don’t know they did not look right together to me. But Hey I’m not going to wear it

Simone was the first to go. Loved the color combo and actually if I would have been the judge Elisa would have gone. But She did complete the one seam garment beautifully. Even if it was a bit on the heavy side about it showed more skill.

Marion was the second to go. What happen to him has happen to me before. It was a beautiful knit mini. I hung it up and just over night it had stretched to a skirt that was mid calf. And you could see through it. Simply amazing what the wrong fabric will do.

Anywho, I am waiting to the 3rd espisode and taking note of it all as I continue in my endeavor to MAKE IT WORK!

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month.

The Sewing Machine were in place and supplies are available just waiting for the people to arrive. 

I am very happy to have ventured out of my comfort zone it was very empowering to accomplish this!  

Our Mentors were working on sewing project while helping others ! 


Some who are learning were happy and frustrated.  Lining the top of the dress can be a challenge but she conquered it! 

I cannot wait to see the finish projects of all those who took advantage of the event to start a project.  

First time at a sewing machine and so eager to see the finish result!

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
