uncommon threads on the air

4 January 2007 3,722 views 20 Comments

Thanks for all the good wishes about our move, it’s going to be a busy couple months. It would seem that life is a never-ending river of excitement chez splityarn; remember way back in August when Jennifer, Marisa and I flew to LA to shoot Uncommon Threads? Doesn’t it seem like it’s been ages? While the DIY network continues to air season one of Uncommon Threads, HGTV has picked up season two. HGTV! Included-in-most-cable-packages-HGTV! I stumbled across the listings the other day mere hours before the first episode aired. Set your Tivos and DVRs, it’s finally happening! If you thought I was excited about being on the DIY Network, I’m over the moon about HGTV.

We filmed three episodes while we were in LA and if they’re airing according to the episode numbers, our shows should air on January 15th & 24th and the third episode on March 6th. The first episode (Mad About Aprons) is all the talented Jennifer. I’m there running the iron, but it’s all about her amazing work. The second one (Crafty Helpers) is where I demo how to make the knitting crafty bucket. The last episode (Old Cover New Trick) we make one of my CD cases, Marisa demonstrates Jennifer’s book cover, and….something else. Maybe the host Allison made something? It’s been so long I can’t remember!

I’m starting to worry now that maybe I was completely dorky or that I’ve said things that will make no sense. I’m sure it will all come out fine, but it freaks me out a little. I always think about the stuff the editing crew must make fun of while they’re putting the episodes together. I mean, just how loud was my stomach rumble while Allison demonstrated the crochet pin cushion?

    HGTV? As in the channel I watch only slightly more than ESPN? DREAM COME TRUE! Now when Bubba rolls his eyes and says, “Ugh, HGTV? Do we have to watch this?” I can say, “YESANDSHUDDUPBECAUSECAROISON!!!”
    I get a little protective of my swap buddies, what can I say?

  • Abbe said:
