Later that day.......

Yippee, Sofie's team won gold and are the state aerobics champions for their level. So now she gets to go to the nationals. This will be held here in Melbourne in August. Well done Sofie!!


Ellen and I survived her first driving lesson. It took us 35 minutes to travel 2 klms in a local car park. We had a good time and will be out again tomorrow....watch out Melbourne!!


I also managed to finish Burda 1-2008-116. The very popular wrap top that many of you have made already. I should have read the reviews BEFORE I cut it out. Of course the ties are too short. Barely make it around me to tie.



I used a knit I bought at Brunswick Fabrics on our first Pattern Review Down Under weekend a couple of years ago. I bought quite a few metres and I have some left over for a matching skirt. The fabric has two layers. The under layer is very sheer - you can see my hand under it. The top layer is partially stitched to the bottom layer and is raw edged. I am not sure what the fibre content is but it feels like it has some cotton in it.




As promised here is a photo of me in Burke Rd Camberwell. Sorry, you can't see much of the street but I am in front of Koko Black where we had coffee. I will forgive Ellen for the not so good photo as she said my top looked like something you would get in Vesace..nice girl!!


No, I did not get to the gym, I certainly did not do any washing...so a very good day!! Hope your Saturday is as much fun as mine was. Oh, and we went out for pizza in celebration.....

Vicki, you look so good these days. Actually the tie's length on your new top seem to work just fine for you. Congrats to your daughter and her team!

Gwen said...

Congratulations to Sophie and her team! You guys must be so thrilled and excited! And, your top is smashing! That is very interesting fabric - I haven't seen anything like it before. Sounds like you set the bar high in the "good day" department, but I'll try to live up to it! :)

Love your version of the top. The fabric is awesome and unusual. You are stylin'!!! I'd love a cappacino right now. ;o)

Congratulations to Sofie and her team and best of luck at the nationals. Don't laugh, but my daughter's first driving lessons were in a cemetery! She was able to practice turning corners, staying on the right side of the road and other maneuvers without the presence of oncoming traffic.
