Tennis-3, Sewing-1

After three shifts at the Australian Tennis Open....
Before the crowds descended on Monday....

Tuesday evening...
Wednesday, 5pm
 Wednesday, 7pm
Sometimes this is the only view of the tennis I get!

I've had little time and even less energy to sew!

I did, however manage to finish my skirt on 

Sunday.....


(Better photos coming!)

and, yesterday, start another for my sister!


This skirt pattern from "Sew Serendipity" is SO 

good...


Clear instructions, excellent diagrams and accurate 

pattern pieces!


I can highly recommend it!

I have today off, so I'm off to sew....

I'll see you after my next three shifts!

Happy days!

Great skirt! So fresh and summery, and I really like the contrasting piping(?). Your sister's one looks like it will be really cute too. Good luck with getting lots of sewing done today! I have been enjoying the Open from my comfortable spectator position on the couch - what does your job there involve?

I love that spotty fabric - and it looks great on! Hope your feet get a well earned rest :o)

Very cute skirt! It screams summer, which it clearly is NOT here. haha

Miriam said...

Love your new skirt! :)

I bet you are glad you are not at the tennis today with the heat we have right now! Hope you are keeping cool.
I've been enjoying the tennis from home.

It's tennis, tennis and more tennis here at home too - thanks to Foxtel! Something for Fred to do!

Love the skirt. I have the book, had better dig it out and check out that pattern.

Too hot for sewing here at present,

Apparently I've been showing up as a no reply blogger - blame the google + thing! I think I've fixed it - let me know if I'm still the invisible woman!!

Lovely skirt. Hope you don't get too hot at the tennis. I don't know how the players do it in this heat

Oh I love that skirt you made! One day I will get my courage up for a little clothing creation.

Now this looks like you have had the best days for the weather and missed the hot one today? Hope you have the same plan for next week.
Great skirt, and lucky sister!
