Op - shop find...

I found this transfer catalogue in an op-shop in Healsville - it cost me all of $2. Flipping through it I thought how perfectly it could be adapted for my stitching. I thought that some of the border designs (middle page) would work well as seam treatments for my crazy patchwork - when ever I get back to it.
The quilting designs (last page) could be adapted as motifs for the middle of patches or as focus block.
The possibilities are endless and this 'find' has filled me with all sorts of inspiration and has offered me a starting point again as I have become quite 'stale' of late. Perhaps somewhere in the few days off I'm having at Christmas there might be a window of opportunity to explore more.
