Is it over already?

I can't believe the Great British Sewing Bee is already over.  I feel like all the contestants are dear friends, urging and encouraging me to sew!!

Part of the time I felt like I was still doing the Sew Weekly--sewing to a deadline (of course, without the  cameras, lights and oh, 2.7 million viewers....lol)  The BEST news is that they are planning to do another series! I can't wait.  My main question is do you think it will go the way of most reality tv shows in that the challenges will get increasingly difficult the more seasons they have?  Because I thought it was pretty difficult to begin with...

I was so disappointed that I wasn't able to make it to the blogger meet-up of the century in London this last week (crazy work week!!)  But I am super happy to report that I'll be heading to Birmingham this Saturday to attend the grand opening of Guthrie and Ghani Haberdashery shop--which is Lauren's (from the Great British Sewing Bee) new venture!

This is my favourite photo of Lauren:

And here's a photo of her new fabric/haberdashery store:

Apparently there will be a few Great British Sewing Bee Sewists there, so I can stalk get them to sign my book!  Will you be there?  More details on Lauren's blog.

So, what crazy challenges do you think they will have (or should have) in season two?

  2. I loved the show, and was so glad we here in the US could view it on YouTube. It was a great incentive to spend more time at the sewing machine!

  3. Oh Debi I feel the same way about the show being over. But you are a very lucky girl getting to go to Lauren's Grand opening party! Have a ball and if there's a guest/visitor book, please pass on the best wishes from all us Scottish Sewing bloggers!

  4. Please, please make application to take part in season two--you would be perfect on that show. It was wonderful that we could see it in the U.S. and I do sincerely wish that our country could produce such an interesting, informative and heart warming series.

  7. Yes, need more episodes, i'm suffering withdrawal symptoms!
    This sounds like a great day out and I'm sorry I won't make it, though I will one day pay a visit as I love Lauren's style and just know she will stock the most lovely things! Hope you have a great day and take the requisite pics.

I loved the show and was so glad that someone was kind enough to put it on Youtube so that we over in the states could watch! I am also so happy to see Lauren's venture come to fruition!!!!!! I'll be with you all in spirit---have a great time!!! Looking for the next show --- hopefully it will be soon.
