It seems I am not the only one completely smitten with neon brights just now, you guys are crafting up a storm with some delicious hot oranges and bright pinks! Aren't these gorgeous!?

I am completely in love with Brooke's fabulous handmade rose pillowcases and wish I was local to her so she could teach me how to make a few for myself. If you're in Portland (USA) then I recommend a wee visit to the newly opened The Atelier Stitch where Brooke can teach you just that in their beginner classes. Oh and check out her stunning neon pink hair... sorely tempted to liven up my own locks too!

Oh and Lu Summers, of Summersville, has me going all ga-ga over her current quilting project! That gorgeous geometric in those stunning brights in the top picture is just the beginning of something truly amazing, if you don't believe me check out this post on her blog for the latest update on it's progress... love it!

Emma, x
