today is the last day of print & pattern before christmas, and what better images to finish the year on than the christmas 2008 collection from japanese company decole. this years designs have a cute folksy theme and fresh colour palette. as we leave christmas designs behind, i'll be back in the new year looking towards spring collections. before we know it the shops will be full of valentines and easter design. many thanks to everyone who clicked onto print & pattern this year, all those who contributed to next years book, and all my sponsors who make it possible. merry christmas and happy new year !
