So this piece has been inspired by the rain, believe it or not. Frankly, I got sick of seeing the stuff so decided to put a more positive spin on getting soaked every time I scuttled between my house and my sewing shed. It’s completely outlined with twisted wire of course, and the umbrella panels have been made from five coordinating, yet different, prints. The handle of the umbrella has been made with leatherette. The raindrops are a mix of blue, silvery and clear beads, all held in place with invisible thread. Natch, it’s all topped off with a loop at the top so you can hang it wherever you need to feel cheery. A window is a great place for it. You’ll never again have to look at the rain without seeing something beautiful when you do it.
