Re: Unconventional Color Palette for Spring 2014

These colors are awful! So dull and murky. Nothing like Spring and they would look terrible on me. Disappointing. I wouldn't wear any of them.

Re: Tangerine Tango

I hate orange too unless it's paired with something like hot pink. Orange doesn't look good on anyone especially near the face. I wore orange in 1968 but I was a kid and following the trends.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Threads Sewing Guide"

I LOVE Threads! I've been getting it since it started and I buy all the books and DVD's i can afford as well. It's the best sewing info anywhere.

Re: Project Runway: There IS an "I" in Team

Gretchen is an annoying know-it-all who thinks she's the only one with talent and the last word in taste. BUT that isn't my biggest gripe about her. I don't think she has done anything exceptional. She can sew but I see nothing new, original, different or outside the box from her designs. THAT'S what the show is supposed to be about. A new original, designer who will give us something we haven't seen before. So far everything she's done I've seen. And I've seen it many years ago. It isn't even current. Team Luxe not only made a huge mistake listening to every word she said they went along with her boring colors, her snide comments about others designs and her complete disregard for anyone elses views. Unfortunately they deserved to lose for allowing her to ram her way through the entire episode. What were they thinking??

I don't like Casanova and his taste so far seems questionable but good for him for pulling himself up by the bootstraps and making it work and winning the day! You go!

Re: Book Giveaway: Successful Serging

I'm planning on replacing my very old serger and I'd love some new ideas and tips. This book sounds like a good start.
