Tiny Tuesday Umbrella anyone?

I started this guy in the car line today. I used back basting and got a start on it. I finished it up while Emily read to me this afternoon. 

A shot of the umbrella's that I have made so far this year! 

It has been awards week. Aidan's was yesterday for his last time at Elementary School. He got the Presidents Award and a Leadership Award. His good friend won the $4,000 scholarship to UCF after he graduated HS! He was so excited for him! 
Emily's awards ceremony was this morning and she got the Math Award and the coveted Golden Bear Award from her teacher. One boy and girl from each class get selected by their teacher for that award. They look at how they exemplify the rules of the school - Be your best, Everyone Safe, Active Learner, Respectful and Responsible - in and outside of the classroom. Her teacher got a little teary eyed when she handed it out to her and mentioned she wanted to keep her! They both were very proud of their awards.



I am soo proud of you both, Aidan and Emily--
what a great year you both had--
and now a fun summer time ahead and then on to new things
next year--way to go, kids--
luv, di

Congratulations to the kids for their awards! Love your umbrellas. How cute would it be to use a raindrops pattern for a border!
