I miss Carol Duvalls' show
I adored her...the common sense approach, her Christmas specials were spectacular, the crafts easy enough to attempt. Carols' show went off the air in 2009, & I'm still waiting for some network to come up with the younger version of herself. A website isn't the same, even if it is Marthas'. Pinterest is cool...quite the time waster in the guise of 'inspiration'. Online sites, such as craft gossip , purl bee (except I substitute more affordable fiber & fabric.....), & awesomesauce & asshattery , are wonderful to read & dream through. *But* none of them are the same as being able to watch Carol at work & listen to her Michigan accent. I find it rather sad that handcrafts are held in such low esteem, that prime-time media doesn't find them worth the expense of broadcasting.
