The Great British Sewing Bee has Started!
My favourite programme has started. For the next couple of months Tuesday nights are special, spaghetti bolognese in front of the telly to watch the Great British Sewing Bee! This year there is a great bunch of contestants all working in a beautiful sewing room in a converted warehouse beside the Thames.
So what has the close-up of the scrappy cot quilt got to do with the Great British Sewing Bee? Well, it's all about Cliff, the first contestant to leave - not because he was eliminated, but because he wasn't well. Such a shame, because he clearly has talent, just look at his shirt! I recognised those strawberries instantly. The pink of the strawberries stands out beautifully against the navy background, and the little blueberries in the design add a splash of blue. Colourful, in a sober sort of way. It is a lovely smooth cotton poplin, so Cliff knew it was not only striking, but comfortable, nice to wear, and easy to wash and iron. Top marks to Cliff.
