I have been sewing my way through the Netflix series called "The Crown" while working on my blocks for the Magnolia Mystery. I am sewing these blocks on my 1952 Singer Featherweight I have called "Charity". She sews like a dream and I am enjoying every stress relieving stitch.
To viewers who enjoyed season #1 of The Crown, I recommend not even bothering with most of season #2. John Lithgow, who was incredible as Winston Churchill, has gone away, and there are so many new nondescript characters that are not well explained. Most of the time I don't know what is going on, and need to rewatch parts of the episodes, then google historical facts so that I can figure it all out. That is not good storytelling when I cannot follow the plot!
Also, much of season #2 is about the sexual escapades and immoral behaviour of the prominent men and of Princess Margaret. The storytelling went from sublime in season #1 to terrible in season #2.
How does that happen?!?
I fast forwarded through some parts of the episodes that are not my "cup of tea", and got so annoyed that I started making sewing mistakes.
That is not a good thing! Okay, where's the seam ripper, and what else can I watch on Netflix?
