Whale pillowWhale pillow
Knitted, crocheted and sewn pillow with buttons and catalog cards.
Books were always a place to 'lay my head' when I was young, and still provide that certain comfort. I'm currently reading Eye of the Whale, by Dick Russell, and so chose the topic of whales from the cards. Some of the stitches reflect harpoon lines used to hunt these beautiful creatures. It is always a thrill to glimpse them off our California coast as they migrate each year.
