Of all your designs this one, the earth tones scarflet, caches my eye the most. Maybe it's a personal thing but I think it's the classiest image in a collection of good images. I also appreciate your thorough instructions, a real effort to educate which is what the net's all about. Keep up the good work.

My own website is a bit different from yours, an information website which I've recently launched which I hope to build up into a community. It's www.embroiderymachine.ie. I hope you'll drop by and give us the benefit of your knowledge and experience.
