It Was Dark As I Drove The Point Home

There's instructions inside on how to make a cushion bed head, I'll let you draw your own conclusions .... Andi, I know you will! .... A rare Op Shop delight also in the form of 'Attic in the Wind' - just the most beautiful children's book I've seen. Here are some of the pictures, I wanted to scan them all! (Published in 1966).

I'm so taken with this book, I love the black ink with the colour,
each page is gem,
think I'll have to scan more to show you another day!

a cushion bedhead?... But how would I attach my handcuffs? The book looks cool. Most of my favourite embroidery is from the 70s.

Also looking forward to seeing more of that children's book; it looks very evocative.

Thanks for that, I saved the second pic into my inspiration file.
It's not often I go so long (like, a few days!) without reading your blog, it's very nice to come here and read a group of posts all at once, I love all the life and color..
