Thankfully, everyone today knows the work of Lucienne Day. And I know lots has been written and blogged about her in the past few years, but I have to add my voice of appreciation for her work to the chorus! I needed a little encouragement today, as I am starting a big push to complete a bunch of textile designs for a deadline. I took a look at this book, "V&A Pattern The Fifties" published by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, which was a Christmas present. Here are some photos I took of images in the book...in not very good light, because it is dull and rainy and grey here today. But I thought you'd enjoy them anyway. If you want to see more just google away, but here is a good link.

Beautiful patterns - I really love the colors too, especially the Perpetua.

I love these! Weren't the 1950's great? I wish we could time travel!
