Neighbour ordered 2 hand-towels with their family design. Did those for the first time in 2008 and updated the file several times.

I had not used that machine for ages as I have been sewing a bit and knitting a lot.

Thanks Chris. It must score pretty high on the 'what's the strangest thing you were ever asked to embroider' list.

Thank you Toogie. It gets a bit boring in the end, I prefer a challenge now and then.

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;)

These are nice, love to see some of your knitting, something I admire . since I can only do the knit and pearl stitch and that not very well.
