Passion Changes Everything is a heavy duty statement with so many facets. It does not matter what Century it is, nor who you are, nor where you live. Passion has been the same from the dawn of mankind to infinity and beyond.
Showing passion for anything makes the passionate person more alive.

Much of the interesting portions of these works can be replicated with your favorite design. For instance, these Koi Fish right here at AnnTheGran!
In the meantime, I have adjusted the umbrella to be a part of the design and a second design to be the 3D portion. I glued the umbrella top to the design and it turned out nicely. The very top of the umbrella is the last portion to sew, therefore, you could have stitch out the lower portion, trim from fabric, place on the original (still hooped design) and stitch it directly to the design. Give it a try!
