Great TV!

Okay so hands up who's been watching The Great British Sewing Bee?

Wasn't it great?? 

I'm so pleased to learn they're making a 2nd series. It's really made me want to dust off my sewing machine & finally make the item of clothing that I've been meaning to do for years!
I've enjoyed talking to customer about it too...... it seems everyone is watching!
We've been selling more fabrics of late to young & old, which can only be a good thing.

Anyone brought the book yet? 

What about this?

I thought the first episode was slow, I did enjoy it but it just gets better & better!!
It's really tugging on my heart string & I find myself fighting back the tears....... I don't normally cry at TV programmes!
Not sure why this is but the acting is fantastic!
I knew it was going to be good when I saw Maxine Peak was in it but John Simms as well???
Little Bert is such a lovely boy, your heart goes out to him.
I haven't watched last night, Joe comes back from the front with shell shock so I best get the hankies out!

What's your thoughts?

Well done to the BBC!


  1. I am watching the Village. Great viewing. I missed the first part of the sewing bee so decided not to watch it

  2. Loved the Sewing Bee - I thought their skills were amazing and that it was a really well made show. Even Hubs got into it (!)

    I did watch the first episode of the Village but thought it was all too grim and depressing so haven't bothered with the rest - perhaps I should have stuck with it for a little bit longer. Good to finally have something worth watching on the TV - although I did really love Mr Selfridge that was on Sundays before.

    Hope you have a good week - what are you planning on sewing ?

  3. I loved the sewing bee, I was definitely on team Ann, she's just amazing. I ordered the book last week, along with a pile of fabric. I've had my sewing machine for a year and I'm still too scared to use it, this is going to change asap :)

  4. I have to confess I've watched neither!!

  5. Yes Iv'e been watching both too and yes I have bought the GBSB book (I couldn't resist!!!)
    Will have to watch last night's village on catch up. I love John Simm and watch anything he is in.

    : )

  6. I haven't watched either! Don't know how I missed both of those, will have to see if I can find them on catchup! :-)
