My goodness, I've found myself in TV heaven lately. I'm not talking about the return of Mad Men, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead or Vikings (does that seem like a lot? ;) ) all of which we watch religiously... typically on Mondays because someone (that's me) had trouble staying up past 8:30 pm in (her) old age. No, this is an even better kind of viewing. Quite recently, Rob happened upon the sweetest little reality show and what's best... it's filled with sewing challenges! The BBC starting airing Great British Sewing Bee (episodes and fun projects here in the UK or here to watch on YouTube in the US) this month. The contestants take part in lovely little sewing challenges and have acess to fabrics, notions and other embellishments to complete them. They made simple skirts, children's clothing and just this week some structured jackets. Play spot the Liberty fabric while watching! I've been loving just about everything that contestant Lauren has been making and really the charm comes in watching each of them sip tea while sewing (sometimes even barefoot!). Very British, very funny, very lovely little show. Have you watched it? You should, with tea and snuggled up in some Liberty! Happy Monday, everyone!
