My neighbour asked me to make two bibs and embroider them with a design based on the birth announcement. I did not like the colours she chose. I would have liked them grey-ish with less contrast.

I noticed the last thing I embroidered on my 4-needle was in September last year and I hardly remembered how to use it :)

Hallo Martine
Bestwel mooie slabbertjes,maar ik had ze in het grijs ook mooier gevonden.lgr.Lammy

You are right on the coloring but got to do what the client wants, right? They still are very becoming Martine and I am sure she is loving them.

I'm with you Martine, I'm not a fan of browns etc. You have still done an awesome job and I'm sure your neighbour loved them. Love Chris

Yes, she was. She always wants two: one as a gift for the mother and one for the grandmother who is a close friend of her.

It is a cute elephant even if you couldn’t stitch it in colors of your liking. Some people can’t visualize how things will look and should leave that up to someone who knows. The stitching looks good from here, too.

Thank you. I did not test it first and fortunately it stitched out well first time round :)

She sure was happy.

Well, I think these are sweet - but, I agree with you - grayish would have been better! Love the stretchy neck - well done! Hugs!

Thank you. Had a happy customer, which is the important thing.

You did great. One has to do what a customer requests.
I know what you mean about forgetting how to use a appliance you have not touched for a while. So often, I have to recall patterns of items, I made multiples of and review them

A quick look at the manual would have saved me a lot of time - should use the machine a couple of times now lest I forget how to again :)

by pennyhal2 30 Apr 2022

It was great that you used the colors she wanted. Sometimes that happens to me too.

You are a good neighbor to make these just as wanted. They still look cute. I can understand your struggle with your 4 needle after not using it for months. I'm in the same boat, relearning how to use my multi-needle after not being able to use it since i was sick over a year ago. I hope you manage to do another project soon.

I have been knitting a lot lately, by hand as by my 80s knitting machine. And been sewing, but not digitising nor embroidering on the 4-needle. So I had trouble what button to push in the menu - my son would have said RTBM - read the b*** manual - and that's what I did in the end.

Martine these are lovely. It’s interesting that our colour choices and others is different.
