Another approach at machine embroidery...
May I introduce to you a new species of softie

"I have begun in old age to understand just how oddly
we are all put together. We are so proud of our autonomy
that we seldom if ever realize how generous we are to
ourselves, and just how stingy with others. One of the
booby traps of freedom — which is bordered on all sides
by isolation — is that we think so well of ourselves.
I now see that I have helped myself to the best cuts
at life’s banquet.”
(Saul Bellow, born July 10, 1915)
