I spent about 8 years playing with digitized machine embroideries. That was the period when the carpel tunnel problems wouldn't allow me to hold a needle. In the long run, hours at the computer digitizing were just as hard on the hands as stitching, but what fun the hours were!
Above is a drawing of a rocket, below is it's digitized version. Teddy bears on sweatshirts on very nice, but embroidery machines can do so much more.
