This is one gorgeous book that I highly recommend to anyone with any interest in pattern, fashion design or colour. It is beautifully laid out with pages and pages of sumptuous coloured images and patterns. Orla Kiely's use of colour is sublime and this book is certainly a feast for the eyes. There is just the right balance between images and words as well, and it's really interesting reading about Orla's creative process.

On sunday 24th April I had a stand at Claymills Victorian Pumping Station . It was only the second time I've had a stall so it's still all new to me. I didn't make much, but had a great time and had some lovely cake! On top of that I met some lovely and talented people, carry on looking to see photos of all the stalls.
These three images are of my stall with all new linocuts! Available from my shop on Facebook
