I'm sweating today.  It was 78 degrees when I went walking this morning.  Whew, that is as hot as it was in Arizona early in the morning.  I usually don't sweat much but today I'm "dewy".
The bathrooms are clean and I can work on other stuff.
I finished up my parasol.  It was a lot of work but I learned some things.  I did a new-to-me stitch to join the base pieces together.

Now I made a mistake with the right/wrong side of the fabric.

I used the wrong side on the lining to the top and the hinge.  But I decided I liked the right side better.  So I used the right side on all the other pieces.  I don't think it looks too bad.  In fact, you might think that it is the way it supposed to be.  Really!   I haven't done a lot of rushing of ribbon so I got some practice doing that.  I used a different design than the designer so my parasol is unique and different than the other ones in class.
Overall, I'm happy with it.
This is what it is supposed to look like:
Keep cool.


  1. I like your violets much better! Congrats! It's beautiful.

  3. Wow is very beautiful
    Many compliments and congratulations for the finish

  4. Absolutely lovely! It's neat that your violets on each section are different - makes for a more interesting design.

  5. This is so cute.
    Great idea with a different design for each section.
    Congrats on another finish.
