exclusives and other stuff

Now I'm not normally one to tease but today is an exception. Tomorrow I'm interviewing Chelsea Cefai in 'the weekend starts here'. Chelsea has revived a fascinating surface pattern archive and as well as reading all about it tomorrow she kindly gave me access to two unreleased prints.  So here is the tease... In advance of tomorrows marvellous interview...here are two beautiful patterns just for you, and as faithful patternboothers you can feel a little thrill that you are seeing them first.

In other stuff, I'm exploring product lines myself at the minute and am a bit struck on the idea of trays.  So, if anyone knows a UK tray manufacturer they can recommend do let me know! In the meantime though, here is a lovely offering from a shop on ebay called the Finnish Design Shop.
