It's PINK!

I recently completed two black and pink parasols. I had someone contact me about a piece I'd sold some time ago, and I've been meaning to do another one in this color scheme, and just one wasn't enough. Plus, now I've got two chances to tempt the headmistress of the Gothic Charm School!

Pink parasol with black lace overlay

A first for me - I added a black lace overlay to the panels before trimming the ribs. I like the look, and am itching now to do another one, but with ivory lace and trim. It came out fabulously!


The second one is a lot closer to the first of these I did, although the trim is different. I alternated with three different types on the ribs, and also added a black beaded fringe around the edges.
