Here at BB we can be "faddy", even "fickle" you might say so we thought we'd snapshot our current obsessions before they fade like yesterdays hair colour. Ok we see "fickle" and we raise you "eclectic". You see, one of us is obsessed with little paper hexagons and the other is obsessed with Robert Pattinson. See? That's eclectic right there. We thought since we cannot agree on which of these wrothy topics deserves more attention we should scientifically compare the two (like they would on CSI which is a whole other obsession). Here goes then:
Paper hexagons, used for traditional patchwork have been around forever (rough estimate)...this little beauty is a photo of a wonderful 1930s version but that's a mere youngster in hexagon terms..
RPattz (sorry but thats what she calls him) by contrast has been around only since 1986 That's one point to hexagons.
Now, we agree those hexagons look mighty fine when adorned with a 30's print don't you think? Ok fair enough RPatz probably wins this one.
Hexagons - you can get your hands on anytime, (make them from scrap paper, print some from the lovely site here and cut them out etc etc).
RPatz on the other hand would rock a fairly hefty restraining order if you tried to pop a bit of scrap fabric round him we imagine and is really hard to find, we didn't see hide nor hair of him on a recent trip to London and surely celebs are ten a penny there. One more to hexagons.
Really? Is this common ground? Is this fair? Oh come onnnnnn
ENTERTAINMENT VALUE WHEN ON THE SOFA
Draw? Surely a draw. On of us has spent many a happy hour making neat little hexagons...
and the other has spent many a happy hour with frame by frame advance on Twilight. (Both of these things could probably fall under the heading of "Get a Life" but nonetheless we're going to award a point to each)
Right so after analysing the results using a spreadsheet (another obsession, sorry) we've come to realise that we're evenly matched. If you'd like to add your vote to this to settle the big RPattz versus English Patchwork debate (look out for it on Prime Minister's Questions) then please do, we would love to hear that we're not odd.
