    All the Best Videos have Sewing Machines

    Definitely the best bit of the Olympics opening ceremony...

    Search on Youtube for "James Bond escorts the Queen" so you can enjoy the first 11 seconds as often as you like.

    I tried to put a link here but it wouldn't work.

    I hope you enjoy it!

    Oh well, good old BBC. The video was online this morning and now they have taken it down.

    So did anyone see it apart from me?

    Yes, I watched the opening ceremonies and it was a great sequence. The Queen was such a good sport and I loved the shots of her Corgis too.

    Try again - does this link work?

    Hooray - success! They took the video down earlier.

    Now you can have a look at the hand machine in the background. It's either a 27K or 66K... the former I think, it's hard to tell, but it seems to have the slide plates for a long bobbin machine.

    What I want to know is, why isn't it in a base, and why is the handle not in position for sewing. Must dash off furious enquiries to the BBC.

    Love the Queen's and Daniel Craig's expressions when she stands up.

    Muv you are too funny! True enthusiast through and through. I couldn't spot a sewing machine even though I tried! LOL! And Mary, your link works great:

    Okay before I drive myself cuckoo... WHERE is that sewing machine? I'm assuming it is in the room where the Queen is writing her letter. Muv - help!
