Project Runway season 3

Project Runway 3 started last night. Since I can't really sew all that well I envy people who can so I was hooked the first time I saw the show. This is Tim Gunn who I just adore. He's a mentor to all the designers giving them feedback and guidance thru each task.
All of the designers are interesting but Laura caught my eye last night. She's a 42 yr old mother of 5 who is always dressed up. No sweat pants and sneakers for this lady. Got me thinking, "How much do you think this woman spends on dry cleaning?" Seriously, I thank God for the label, MACHINE WASH TUMBLE DRY!!!!

I can wait for them to show Jeffrey the door. I know it's a competition but I don't understand the need to be rude to other people on the show.

On season 1 I was all for Jay Mc Carroll. He was creative and had a different point of view. Well after watch the pre show last night I'm just so over him. He competed, won, and yet has to launch a line of clothing. If anyone else on season 1 had won they would have done much better at taking the fame and moving it into $$$$.

Oh, don't be so hard on Jay.
Did you watch Project Jay last Spring? It was a lot harder than it looked. And how that Heidi jerked him around on that dress she had him design and redesign and then said she was going with a better named designer (talk about being rude!). Anyway, he was just as lovable and creative as ever. He's also been dealing with some major surgery/life-threatening stuff too as I recall. He'll be fine. I don't think putting out a line is as easy as all that.

You're right about Tim Gunn. I love him. I'm a little worried about him. Almost as if they keep telling him off camera in a whispered voice

"Uh...Tim baby, you gotta say 'Make it work.' everytime you go into the workspace.
I know, I know, you're sick of it and a creative guy like you probably has a number of phrases, but that's the one people want."

I'm fearful for him that it's gonna grow old. Like he'll be 80 and they'll be wheeling him out to say "Maaaaaake It Worrrrrk."
