When I Grow Up

When I grow up, I would love to be a fashion (or interior) designer! I have LOVED sewing since I was about 6.

I have been watching this season's Project Runway. From what I have seen in the first two episodes I really like the styles of Laura Bennett and Kayne Gillaspie.

The task in last night's episode was to design a dress for Miss USA, Tara Conner, to wear in the Miss Universe pagent. (I believe it airs this Sunday night.) Kayne was the winning designer. Isn't that dress stunning? I think I want one...lol!! Ooooh, Kayne!! hehehe!

Watching Project Runway is stirring up the sewing passion in me again. I have the itch to make myself some new clothing. However, my trips to the local JoAnn's in the last two weeks have left much to be desired in the fabric department. Unless you are looking to do some crafting or make a dress out of polar fleece. I guess I will have to venture out of the immediate area a bit or hit eBay.

I've seen a few episodes of this season. It's the first time I've ever watched the series, but I do like it.

I'll sew a valance or duvet cover, but don't even hand me a pattern to work with. The thought makes my head explode, LOL

If you make something, do post pics!!!

I love sewing any type of window treatment. I made some for our kitchen in spring 2001. I still love them. You know how you can tired of seeing the same thing on your windows day after day. Well, for some reason I haven't tired of these yet. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them still...lol!!

Ooops forgot to say: I will post pics when I find the right pattern and fabric to make something. I am leaning toward a skirt or dress.

LOL, I don't even like to sew a button on. Can't say I have watched this program. Sew enough for me Penny because that isn't me. LOL
