1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Wow [​IMG] Simply amazing!

    Wow! You need to start up a shop on Etsy and start making money on these things! That is talent.

    My wife walked in while I was viewing this thread and wants to be a customer. Please warn me before you open up a shop on Etsy so that I can try to block access to it! [​IMG]

    I will say that is shows a great deal of talent as a tailor to take a suit and turn it into a diffrent garment, on the otherhand it sickens me to see someone take such a fine peice of tailored clothing and butcher it while chaning the sex of the garment at the same time.

    Did you see the fusing in that fine piece of tailored clothing (first few pictures)? It was practically glued together. I saw that when I removed a small piece of lining (in that stadium, in a nice and clean way, stitch per stitch), and after that I increased the tempo a bit. Besides that, it was about eight years old and I hadn't worn it the last six years or so.


    awesome thread(s) NOBD!

    Thanks!
