So my buddy Kay gave me some vintage coloring books, from the 1960's.
 
When PerachYafeh suggested a few unusual holiday ideas for a tea towel swap, I perused the coloring books for her "Ice Cream Soda Day June 20" image.

First I tried the pink transfer pencil which totally did not work so then traced with the tried and true black transfer pen. 

Ironed the image and started stitching.

I took liberty with PerachYafeh's idea of "5 a day" food pyramid.

I love it.  I like coloring books for embroidery too.  I have to hide them from my kids though!
