That is a remnant from your early days, Bill.
Bill Phillips: 30 shillings a roll!

Worked a treat, Bill. Not sure I'd want too many rolls of that, though.
Bill Phillips: I can remember stuff like this in the 70s
Ray sounds like a New York mobster!!! Except it shuld be "Getoutaheeea" ! And he's right- it's like you can't even imagine it started as a photo!
Bill Phillips: I think Ray is an Australian Mobster! It was a photo...honest!

Oh, it's amazing what twiddling can do - you may have created some things like wallpaper, clothes ..., not only have sold them - a creative person indeed!
Bill Phillips: smile Thank you Philine. I used to like selling wallpaper
Come clean Bill ... We all know that this is the pattern on the shirt that you have just bought for yourself
Bill Phillips: Tiffo is the one with bad taste in shirts

I did a lot of wallpapering myself.... the wallpaper you show will be a nightmare for people that do NOT know how to do the job grin...
For me... a challenge.....
Great twiddle.
(Can you imagine this on your wall wink)
Bill Phillips: I am not fond of hanging wallpaper. We had a paper with huge orange flowers up our staircase in our first house and loved it!
This does look like wallpaper Bill, but I must say that I like it.
Bill Phillips: You don't have to say that you like it Frances but i'm pleased you have
Is it not supposed to look like a painting on canvas? That's what it looks like to me. I like it.
Bill Phillips: dunno, i was just pressing buttons!
Reminds me of some sort of tapestry. Cross stitch perhaps. Nice twiddle Bill
Bill Phillips: Cross stitch is very popular these days although I have no idea what it is
I'd have agree with Peter, it does look like a table cover. That was my first thoughts looking at it. Excellent capture! wink
Bill Phillips: You might lose things on a cloth like this
I have a feeling we even had some wallpaper like that, oh dear! I haven;t heard that song for a long time, it was The Nashville Teens who had a hit with it in this country I believe.
Bill Phillips: It was indeed but the song was written by Loudermilk I think

Very Seventies!
Bill Phillips: The decade when taste took a long vacation grin
Works very well as a graphic image. I remember when we moved house about 25 years ago, a lot of controversy was caused by a local landlord who hosted an event for hells angel chapters, who arrived complete with police escort. The Nashville Teens played that night, who's big hit was 'Tobacco Road' – see I got there smile
