Wow -- I bought some sheets with these same images and a few more off of eBay a few years ago! I just used an image of two camels from the set on a recent post, if you're interested: http://infinitymoremonkeys.blogspot.com/2011/02/game.html

The beginnings of embroidery are worldwide, including Ancient Egypt, China, India and England. Each country now has its own unique style of embroidery, which manages to incorporate the culture and imagery from its own history and tradition. In many cases, embroidered clothing was considered to be a symbol of wealth and prestige.

These are such great, simple ideas. As a beginner I've been looking at sewing machines on Sewing Makes Me Happy as there are so many available. I'm sure I could do some of these designs using my new machine.
