It's fantastic and I just discovered it thanks to my lucky perusing of some of my favorite other sewing blogs. It's a new sewing show on BBC where amateur sewers compete in a variety of sewing tasks to see who is the best.
The group of contestants are great, and I really appreciate the fact that they are mostly like me...people who love sewing and are pretty much learning as they go. During each task you see them struggle and triumph with parts of sewing that we all do battle with like properly reading a pattern, getting your seems straight, battling the machine, ripping out a seam because you did it wrong, and so on and so forth. Often with shows based in the US, which I love, like Project Runway and Fashion Star, I would often find myself wishing I could see more of how they are actually constructing the garments and projects instead of just bits and pieces and then poof...a finished project! This show gives you both! Anyhoo for more information check out the show's website here. And for full free episodes I simply went to You Tube. For your enjoyment here is the first episode...
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! I still have a few more episodes to watch and I hear they are already accepting entries for the next season. Oh a girl can dream!
Ok I admit it. I have been terrible at blogging lately. My excuse is that my day job has been a bit soul sucking lately, leaving little energy for much else. But since I don't want that to be my reality I am going to change it. That's how the saying goes right..."be the change you want to see in the world."
I have managed to find some time to make art. It has been keeping me sane! Here is my work in progress. Hope you like it!
Although it's supposed to be Spring here in Wisconsin, we have had lots of rain and even a little snow. To combat this dreary weather I have been working on flowers made from bright colors and cheery attitudes! Here is a recent work in progress. Lets hope the weather starts to follow suit soon!
