something for the weekend

A couple of weeks ago I made a little purchase at The Poundshop.  If you haven't heard of them before, then The Poundshop is a transient pop up shop that wants to bring design to a wider audience. With nothing costing more than a tenner, and an ever changing, eclectic bunch of designers on board, it is definitely worth a look. 

I managed to get my hands on these friendly little blocks, screen printed by talented design duo Nathan and Jemma over at Custhom. I am easily distracted of course, so I even made a little vine...

 

I am working towards standing my first ever trade show at HOME-London in January, and today, I handed over my wallpaper designs to the printers...all very exciting indeed! I will be sure to keep you posted on all the developements as it moves along.

In the meantime I have some patterns for sale at the moment with Keka in the US.  Keka are friendly folk who put patterns onto ipad and kindle cases.  I first came across their enterprise when I featured Suzanne Lefebvre earlier in the year.   They are currently only available in the US/Canada, but perhaps later in the year, if there is any demand for it, I will get a limited stock to sell here. 

It's a bit off the pattern track, but I am a sucker for stationery.  When I'm looking through magazines and books researching patterns, products and designers for the blog, I do an awful lot of corner bending, paper-clipping and post-it sticking.  This week though I came across these lovelies...  

The stickies I picked up from Colemans, and the paper clips were from Cult Pens. Both I know will come in VERY useful and brighten up my desk.

Last but not least, the patternbooth blog is almost a year old, and I have finally got round to designing my own logo, you might have noticed the change on the site a few weeks ago.  I'm not sure how I've managed to put it off for so long, but I'm very pleased with it.  

I've been obsessed with strong, bright greens since last summer and so it was always going to be the colour of choice. I'd love to know what you think...?
