Yay for Pattern!

Hooray, hooray! I love my post today! Because I got a copy of Orla Kiely's book, which I won in the giveaway on Kitschen Pink. It's even better than I remembered from when I leafed through it in Waterstones (as you do). A huge, huge thank you to Teena, for this generous giveaway. (I'm not sure how you were able to part with it!) Do check out her wonderful blog, if you're not already familiar with it.

I've photographed it with a small piece of Orla Kiely goodness that I bought in Cornwall - a face flannel.  I can't really afford/justify anything else, much as I covet her designs!

I've already spent quite a lot of time going through the book, and it's nice to see some of the less well-known patterns, and to read about her design process. 

And try to decide which handbag I would have, if I was rich enough. Answer - all of them!

Hello 'sister' -- I too bought the flannel as the only thing I could afford! I'm envious of the beautiful book. Lucky you.

I was given this as a birthday pressie and I love it! I managed to track down one of the bags she designed for Tesco for charity earlier this year. Big bag - little price!£4. Well worth it. What a great giveaway prize!
