I’m a Project Runway fan. That’s a bit odd, since I couldn’t design something wearable to save my life and I really don’t care that much about clothes to begin with. Give me jeans and t-shirts and a comfy sweater. What more do I need?
But I still get a kick out of watching Project Runway. The talent and passion is what gets me, and even I can recognize the beauty in the designs of this season’s winner, Anya. Here’s the amazing thing: Anya only learned to sew four months before she auditioned for the show.
That brought back memories of learning to sew when I was a kid and all the clothes my mom made for me as well as the dress my sister created that you could convert from floor length to mini. My male readers might have a hard time participating this weekend, but come on. Give it a try!
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. I’ve loved reading your stories. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true.
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge.
▪ Avoid offensive language.
I look forward to reading your stories!
