Amazing Lace, Challenge #6

August 20th, 2006 | View Comments

Your challenge—your final challenge—is to post a photo of your lace being proudly worn or displayed by the strangest, funniest, or most unlikely model you can find.

At first I thought I’d try to find a cardboard cutout of somebody menacing to model my lace. The Hulk! Darth Vader! Alas, they were unavailable.

Then I thought I’d do something completely unlikely, at least for me. I wear a dress and heels probably five days out of every year and usually it’s because someone is going to have my head if I don’t show up wearing something nice. I bother to do my unruly mass of hair even less often than that, because well…unruly mass of hair.

But look! It’s me! All dolled up! An unlikely model for sure.

I can twirl!

Look!  Pretty!

Ok. But it’s not funny. And it’s not even unlikely, unless you kind of know me.

And then I found it. The best model for my lace, and one that complements the story of the lace nicely. See, the Print o’ the Wave stole is a wedding gift for a friend of mine. I will be shipping it off tomorrow, exactly six weeks and one day after she tied the knot. I probably should have started it sooner. And worked on it more diligently, instead of getting distracted by, y’know, other lace. Thus:

Print o' the Wave stole, and my model

The poster reads, “Procrastination: Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now.”
