… but about 10 days ago I started replaying my box set of BBC’s The Good Life (1975-1978), aka Good Neighbours.
It’s still as delightful as it was when I first saw it (the 90’s), plus the fashions and hair-do’s Margo (Penelope Keith) wears are classic 1970’s. It’s been fun crocheting and pausing to watch, and a much needed respite.
What I haven’t mastered is sewing and telly. But when sewing came up in one of the episodes, I took a screen pic to show that altering was commonplace then, even for Margo Leadbetter.
Also had to include one of her Jungle January outfits – a glorious caftan that must have been silk because it swished so beautifully.
That mysterious blue crochet became a hat that got finished, along with another beanie-style. (Directions are here.) It had to be a beanie because I ran out of the blue, and used some cream to complete. Both are on their way across the pond and might be worn for the March NHS event, provided they fit.
Hope everyone has a grand week!
