We really hope you'll join us this month!

Today we present a minimalist & futuristic mood board created by one of our amazing 
Finnish designers, Terhi KoskinenThis mood board is full of texture, softness, 
sun & light. There are so many ways you can be inspired this month.  

Firstly, the pale colours of white, greys, pale yellows, soft browns & all the shades of teal AND/OR the beautiful horse with it's long, flowing mane.  This could direct your 
composition or inspire your use of thread!  The mottled grey background is 
another great starting point. The simple text, the lovely sentiment, the 
wood, string, circles of twine, pencil work& measurement details, 
& of course everyone's favourite - CHEVRONS!  Arrows, 
the ombre effect - ooooh it is all UP TO YOU!!  

Remember to follow our Rules, be inspired, get creating & LINK UP!
