70s flower power cushions (Orla Kiely style)

Here are some 70s cushions that I've made which remind me of some of Orla Kiely's more recent patterns. It's quite possible that she was inspired by similar fabrics as she did a print with knifes and forks too. These will soon be available on my cushion website.

Jaqueline Groag

I've become a bit obsessed with the designs of the textile artist Jaqueline Groag and this is now my favourite new book! She also made small wooden dolls throughout her life which often cropped up in her work. I'm really fortunate to own a coffee table with her formica design on (black and white) and also several of her fabrics. This is a wonderful book and her life story is fascinating.
