* Martha

Posted on September 14th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Review.

What to say about Martha’s new show? I’m going to keep watching it, at least, hoping for some good craft content. The shirt-folding trick was neat the first time, but did we really need to see it twice? It seems a little too contrived and regressing to the mean. I want to see the beautiful, excessive Martha projects, not boring stuff anybody could do. Maybe they’ll get to them and only the first week will be so celebrity-ridden. Time will tell. I do feel like the magazine’s gotten better lately, though.

    I would have been much more impressed with the t-shirt folding thing if it hadn’t been on the internet forever (http://www.jengajam.com/r/shirt-folding) I’m wishing they’d go back to the Martha Stewart Living style of show, instead of making it The Ellen Degeneris Show with recipes. Meh. I’ll just keep TiVo-ing it and hoping there will be something worth watching soon.

    I was just thinking I need to get a subscription again. And I can not figure out the shirt thing.

    I really struggled with the first show – glad I wasn’t the only one. Maybe I’ll give it another try next week… *fingers crossed*

    Glad I’m not the only one. I haven’t even managed to watch more than 10 minutes at a time. Relaxed natural sounding conversation has never been a strong point for her. Telling people what to do – that’s what she good at.

    And she probably would have told me to check my comment before I pressed Post. That should be “what she’s good at”
