Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thanks, Kestra, macloudt, & Pondwater! Those photos were taken right here in New York City at a place called Alley Pond Environmental Center, which is a part of Queens. It's a pretty remarkable place. Not only is it in NYC (and literally set against a highway), it's got a few different habitats, including marsh, woodland and meadows. Over the years, I've gotten quite a number of decent photos there.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

My new toy!



I've been wanting a digital sewing machine that does proper embroidery as well as a range of decorative stitches, and my local sewing machine shop was having a sale. I'm SO glad I took a course on learning all about our machines, because the instruction manual is 200 pages long (yes, all in English!), and learning to use the machine completely by myself would have freaked the frack out of me. As you can see was having fun trying out the various fancy stitches. My freehand machine stitching needs a wee bit more practice, though.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Impressive. Most, impressive, macloudt! Looks like you're going to have a lot of fun with it. I just hope it doesn't start stitching out messages to you of its own volition!

(And thanks cooleddie and Tora Ziyal!)

No, not cool. I think the phrase you're looking for is "scary as hell".
