I just saw them! Martine, they are so awesome. Your neighbor must be so pleased! Well done! Hugs, Laura
You have certainly not lost your touch. There are lovely.
Beautiful work on these Martine, I'm sorry I missed seeing these 3 days ago. Lovely story about the family too. Love Chris
Thanks Chris. It must score pretty high on the 'what's the strangest thing you were ever asked to embroider' list.
These are great! The lady and family too, must like your work because they keep giving you orders. Well done!
Thank you Toogie. It gets a bit boring in the end, I prefer a challenge now and then.
They will enjoy having them...and...they will love them so much that they will use them for display as they are so perfect!
Gorgeous stitching and design, Martine....
There is quite a story about this design. First time I made them it was just on towels for her 5 grandkids. That same month she asked if I could make a cloth to cover a coffin as her husband was dying. Needed to be green and not black or purple and she wanted the design on it. So I phoned a local undertaker and asked if he could advise me on measurements. As it was the day after Christmas I could get green satin and used the wrong side of the fabric. Finished just in time. After the funeral family members wanted towels and since then my neighbour regularly asks for more as a gift. I think (read: hope) she will run out of family members who have not had one yet;)
Thank you all for your kind comments!
Those are so beautiful . Great detail.
Beautiful stitch outs!
