I have been making umbrellas for a few years now. I've always had in the back of my mind I would like to add my own "unique" touch to one. Mother's Day, and my Mom's love of the Sunbonnet Sue block and the color pink, was my inspiration for this special gift.
I used pink Kona Cotton by Robert Kaufman for my applique background. The piecing was completed with 50wt. Aurifil grey #2600 thread. For the raindrops and puddle embroidery I used 12wt Aurifil grey #2605.
I am so pleased with this project, and I know Mother will be overjoyed.
Happy Mother's Day to y'all.
