Penny, thank you so much for sharing! These are fantastic!!!!

I found the download of the original book - it is fun to read the directions - these women who did this machine embroidery were amazing.

Here's the link to the download:http://www.archive.org/details/singerinstructio00sing

Oh, Penny, these are fantastic...and never ending! Zentangle heaven!!! I can't wait to use them all. A real find!

P.S. Some of them might already be Zentangles. It will be fun to try and identify them.
The ones that aren't are going to need names...better get busy.

Zentangle... an easy to learn and relaxing method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns created by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. They believe that life is an art form and that Zentangle is a perfect metaphor for deliberate artistry in life. To learn more about the process, please visit their beautiful web site at www.zentangle.com.
