how to slow down…
(my version of this idea embroidered with black thread on muslin.)
I have wanted to do a little line drawing embroidery since I got this book.
a whole view.
This book was given to me as a gift. A heart felt thank you….<3 (you know who you are!)
It is from 1971.
The title pretty much sums up the book…Living on the Earth.
It has everything in it, from building a shelter, making soap,
making bread, making clothes, candles, cooking, gardening,
first aid, milking a cow and what to do with the milk, herbal remedies and so much more.
Every time I look at the book, I see something new.
But, what makes this book so fascinating is that every page
is handwritten and all of the drawings are line drawings.
A lot of heart and soul went into this book.
look to the right….the book only cost $3.95, hard to believe!
a line drawing of a girl with a bamboo flute.
on the front cover…I think it is a little dear or dog licking their young???
Living on the Earth…
