So I mentioned that I was recovering an old umbrella, right? I went back to my second class and everything was going great until I went to open up the umbrella. The canopy fit perfectly, but there's a problem with my little end piece. It's too complicated for words and I don't think that a picture would work, so here's my classmate's umbrella.
Oh! It's fuzzy! I only took one photo. Boo. Anyway, she used a little wooden bead and then a little metal bead to secure that. I think she was planning on doing a different color bead at each end point. Pretty neat.
Mine is in a sad pile on the floor in my craft room. I need to use a drill, but I have all these horrible images running through my head of drilling off a finger. Blah. I'll figure it out.
