For those thinking about going to multi-head machines, folks that use them, but just as multiple-piece single-heads, or for those of you with legacy machines, this post has some concerns, tips, and tricks that might be useful for you. As you can see from the pic, even legacy machines are in on the mix. :)

My grandmother had a book with images in it and a special something with mirrors that would sit on top of the images and make them seem to move as it spun around. I was always fascinated by it and very unhappy when my mother gave it to someone outside the family! Your embroidered images are great!

Played with +Krita yesterday and did a quick bit of digital calligraphy on my aged Wacom tablet. I really enjoyed it!

My wife and I were very exacting about our wedding having designed every little bit of the experience ourselves, so when we were hunting for photographers, we were certain to ask questions and make demands, and despite this demanding nature, Kevin, Trisha, and our wedding-day photographer Chris were accommodating, professional, and nice. We received personal attention throughout the process and were allowed to have all the input we wanted. From the stunning personal engagement session to the flawlessly executed wedding day to the expert composition of the wedding album with Trisha's personal touch throughout, the experience was stellar. What is nearly unbelievable is that this also came at such a fair price; having had to budget the entire endeavor ourselves, we couldn't buy the top-end package, but this didn't stop everyone at Kevin's from giving us extremely attentive service. Coming from two very detail-oriented people, that really means something.
