I watched the conclusion of The Great British Sewing Bee tonight and I have only one thing to say: #oldpeoplearegoodateverything.
Ann deserved to win the competition and all of the participants were worthy competitors.
The epilogue confused me. It said that Ann had recently taken up quilting. That's not true.
Look at Ann Rowley's Flickr stream, particularly the Patchwork and Quilting sets. There are examples of her quiltwork going back several years. Check out the label on her Stars in the Garden quilt. The quilt was started in 2005 and finished in 2007, years before The Great British Sewing Bee.
Exploring Ann's Flickr photostream, you can learn that she knits, crochets, quilts and makes garments. She can pretty much do anything well. Is this among the neatest and best executed tubular cast-ons you have ever seen?
#oldpeoplearegoodateverything and may we all live to make it true!
