Slightly randomly, in March, I was asked by BBC1’s The One Show to create a crochet doll of Mary Berry so I got out my hook and got to work to create the living legend herself! They were planning to give it to her on air as they were going to be talking about Barbie’s 60th Birthday so wanted her to have her very own custom made doll.
I went down to be in the audience for the filming of the show and although they didn’t have time to give the doll to Mary on air as hoped, Alex Jones gave it to her after the show and introduced us. Mary was impressed by my crochet skills and I was impressed by the awesome chocolate ganache she’d made for the audience!
Such an amazing experience!!
