Try the library. That's what I did when I started my embroidery designs.

There are many sites online that offer free coloring pages, great for applique and quilting designs.

Aha! Great idea, coloring books. Who would have thunk it. Not me. But I will now.

You can also do a search for clip art.

Coloring books, free clip art pages on net, anything that you can copy-from a magazine. Good luck

You will find more than you know what to do with if you search clip art. I use google images..and then clip art.

Do an images search on google.com. I always type in the words "coloring pages" after the term I'm looking for.
