Hope everyone's week is off to good start. We are knee deep in Emma's room redo. Its gonna be great, but man is it painful getting there! I have some great DIY projects to share with you as we finish it.
This month's inspiration? Ombre. It's hitting me hard. I'm loving it in flowers, in hair, in table settings, in t-shirts, in nails, everything. I realize that this is short-lived trend, but its so much fun to see how everyone is getting creative with the whole idea.

Other inspirations this month-
I'm taking Get Your Paint On/Beyond The Basics starting this month, I'm really excited to get to work on some new paintings (bigger ones this time!).
I'm taking a new workshop with Denyse Schmidt at the end of the month, I'm thinking the rest of the summer will be all about quilts and paintings.
I got a new sewing machine!!! A new Bernina 550 QE. If you are looking for a machine, and you are near Seattle, please go visit the folks at Bernina Northwest. They are so great, made the whole process seamless.
The machine's name is Gretel.
I love her.
