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.
