Which one is Sandra?

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:24:21

Oops - they just showed her!

The one who just won the first round, very busy floral fabric. Looked chiffon-y at first but couldn't tell properly.

Right, channel sorted.

I (clearly) hadn't heard about it. Mind you, that's not really surprising, I have TIVO set up to record the things I like and don't channel surf or watch the Ads -there's probably a zillion things I miss that I'd love!

Looks interesting... (I'll have to watch the start on play again)

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:26:17

Oh, I'm going to start wearing my measuring tape round my neck to look all knowledgeable and that grin

flubba haha brilliant! Make lots of hmm noises and nod accordingly.

Just to copy what I wrote on the dead thread...

I think it needs someone with a lighter touch than Claudia. The GBBO works because Mel and Sue are funny and don't take it too seriously. I'm also a little hmm by the slightly patronisjng way they're explainging the ultra-basics.

I mean, would the kind of person who's chosen to watch this really not going to know what an A-line skirt is?

However I'm still going to keep watching it, because sometimes you can learn something and it's always inspiring to one's own efforts smile

Place marking because I'm useless at telly watching and mnetting at the same time. Sorry.

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:29:00

yes, shall practise that blue hmm, yes >nods sagely< being careful not to dislodge the newly adorned measuring tape

blueraincoat Tue 02-Apr-13 20:29:41

Agree needs a lighter touch, am trying to think who would work...

ChippingInIsEggceptional Tue 02-Apr-13 20:30:23

MakesCakes I just text my friend and her 8 year old is going to watch it, so just assume all the 'patronising' bits are aimed at her grin

Yes, Claudia seems like an odd choice.

Jo Brand? (no. Not really)

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:31:16

Alan Carr grin

Enjoying though! And I am not gifted at sewing!

Blue - Sandra's fabric looks like a liberty tana lawn cotton fabric to me

Sorry had to pause for DS needing settling so am 10 mins behind

Chipping - I'd made an A-line skirt by the time I was 8 <huffs>

Mind you, my mum went to domestic science college, so I had a head start through her

I want Angela as a Granny.

Just saying.

Why does it all have to be a competition? They're not actually showing how to do things. Very irritating.

blueraincoat Tue 02-Apr-13 20:33:05

DP just pipes up out of nowhere and says this would be better with Mel and Sue. We are wayy ahead haha

ChocolateCremeEggBag Tue 02-Apr-13 20:33:11

I can make an A line skirt, but not sure I'd like the pressure of a rims challenge to be honest!

flubba Tue 02-Apr-13 20:34:43

Fnaaar to be pressured into a rim challenge

I apologise. As you were. grin

Ooh Sandra. Not good!

Rims? Did I miss something?

The judges are a little dour...

I dunno, I really want to enjoy this programme, but it's like a badly sewn in label on the neck of a new top - you can't help but be irritated by it.

MakesCakes - I'd made clothes for my teddy, does that count?
