Me too grin

Forgot it was tonight, am at a relative's house and can't work their telly/sky box thing blush

blueraincoat Tue 02-Apr-13 20:13:07

Oh noes, you will have to iPlayer it.

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:14:15

Oh Rhinestone grin sad - don't worry, we'll keep you up to date while you jab away at their silly controls smile

So far, they've been given a pattern for an A-line skirt to follow. They have nearly every demographic covered in their 'contestants' or whatever they're called.

If you've got t'internet, you should be able to watch it live on BBC?

blueraincoat Tue 02-Apr-13 20:15:05

Ooo history bit. It is very much following the GBBO formula.

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:16:43

Am soooo jealous they've got that massive fabric stash at their disposal!

Good point, will try telly on netbook and MN from phone...

blueraincoat Tue 02-Apr-13 20:17:57

I am loving the young blonde ones fabric combination

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:18:23

Doh. Didn't know that's why we make bias binding on the bias - thought it was for strength, not 'give' blush

Educational, this is! grin

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:18:41

Yes, me too blue

blueraincoat Tue 02-Apr-13 20:19:18

I am really new to sewing, just learning the basics at the moment so this is way out of my depth. blush

Success!

Hello all - can't decide yet if I am jealous, thinking I could do it better or because they are better than me. Loving the big sewing room and fabric choice.

Winkleman's commentary is a bit annoying

blueraincoat Tue 02-Apr-13 20:20:25

Not sure as to that blue gingham, red ribbon combo. Bit too Dorothy for me.

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:21:22

Eughhh those roses!! Bless Anne! grin

Ambridge Tue 02-Apr-13 20:21:31

Winkelman is always annoying angry

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:21:38

Yes, chocolate I'm the same! smile

ChippingInIsEggceptional Tue 02-Apr-13 20:22:21

What channel are you on?

Blue with flowery ribbon v nice.

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:22:53

although I don't think I could make these skirts for toffee. Not sure I could follow a pattern

blueraincoat Tue 02-Apr-13 20:23:10
