It’s been a helluva week! On Monday I taught my first class at The Village Haberdashery. Thank you so much to all the people who wished me well. You’ll be pleased to hear I didn’t foul up! We had great fun, ate cake and stayed on schedule. My favourite moment was me pontificating, ‘I think we need to embrace the randomness.’ We were talking about a fabric print, but that may become my new Leitmotif. Embrace The Randomness!
Tuesday saw me get together with sewing friends to watch the final of The Great British Sewing Bee. Yeehaw! I think the above photograph suitably sums up the excitement. I haven’t had a televisual experience like that since 1985’s Live Aid! (I’m still struggling to forgive my mum from that day. As Ultravox began their set, Mum hollered at me to come through for my lunch. I missed ‘If I Was’ for salad cream, iceberg lettuce and a boiled egg?!!!)
What did you think to the GBSB results? More importantly, are you going to apply for the second series?!
Last night, I was lucky enough to go to the launch party for Cloth magazine. I met some fabulous people, including Kath, pictured below. This sewing fanatic is also a police woman, which may be one of my favourite sewing facts of all time. You’re under arrest! I have a rotary cutter and I’m prepared to use it.
I don’t mind admitting, I’m looking forward to an empty weekend and a big old lie in. All this activity certainly makes a person consider the what and the why of writing a sewing blog. Ultimately and always, it boils down to two things. The sewing and the friends, and not always in that order.
Hey! Check out MyDaily. You might recognise one of the sewing bloggers featured. Ella is in a huff that I didn’t give her a name check…
