The mail came, and my DS the younger came upstairs with a package for me, saying, “Dad says you’ll be amused.” I was perplexed, until I saw the return address: EMC2. At first I thought that it was from EMC the computer storage manufacturer (old nerd habits die hard), but then I realized it was from Emmett McCarthy, the season 2 Project Runway designer, and I ripped open the package, and here he is!!!
How cool is this? It felt like Christmas when I opened the box. And he signed it!
I know; I’m a goofy goober, but he’s my hero. He will take his place of honor on the shelf in my sewing room, and whenever I get stuck, I’ll look up at him, and he’ll (figuratively) say, “Make it work!” If you want to get your own, pop over to Project Rungay and they have the information for how to order one.
Speaking of making things work, I finished my dress. It turned out pretty okay. I’ll talk about it over at the Sewing Divas.
