No! Not that, but this:
On Mondays, Game of Thrones takes precedence in this house, so I recorded the Bee. Sigh. Hardly worth it really, a very under-whelming ‘episode’ of nothing much. I couldn’t even get up much venom for a good shout, and only laughed out loud once at the embarrassing messes that a couple of people served up…yes, blah blah, I’m a mean-spirited old bat. I hold by my stance that they’ve put themselves out there into the big wide world, and they’re asking to be judged, so they’re fair game.
Part 1: following a pattern, making babygrows. Boring. Boring boring DOUBLE BORING! I didn’t care, Mrs Tango couldn’t even get much mileage out of shouting ‘gussets’ every so often, and everyone had trouble inserting poppers/snaps/press studs. Meh.
Part 2: chopping up a bridesmaid dress to make a garment for a child. Last week nearly everyone made skirts, this week nearly everyone made ‘princess’/party dresses. YAWN. One guy made a really neat zippered gilet, but it was way too small for his dummy. [For what it’s worth, I would have made a chiffon elephant costume. I don’t know why. but I could see a trunk and ears out of the pale blue dress lol]
Part 3: the bit where they know in advance what they’ll be making, AND have time beforehand to bloody well practice. FFS. A bloody CAPE. Hardly very demanding, you only have to get it right round the neck, and the length. Everyone started by measuring their models, you saw them all check arm length…then at least 3 of them produced messes that weren’t even elbow length. WTF? The guy who has the best skills made a very ambitious tweed jobby, but it was too complicated to finish in time, and the neckline was just plain weird…a low necked tweed cape? eh?
I really hope that next week ups the pace a little, and gets them doing something more interesting, or I will sadly decide that the programme has had its day, and stop bothering. Tedious in the extreme. Edna, what do we say?
