I watched the first series of the Great British Sewing Bee with interest by myself. Once DH watched it, he became enthralled and I ended up buying a sewing machine (sadly underused - I have done at least two seams).
Bear watched some of one tonight. Then he insisted on seeing another one. I have been forced to promise that over the coming week I shall clear out enough rubbish so that he can do sewing with me the next weekend.
I wish I knew what I was doing. It will be the blind leading the blind. More particularly it will be the blind leading the colour blind. I suggested that we try just sewing bits together and seeing what happened, and then perhaps cushion covers. Bear suggested sewing himself a complete Tudor outfit. I suggested that we work up to it. I think if bear continues interested then I'll learn loads. I've learned not to let bear watch those sort of programmes for a start.
