My neighbour asked me to embroider a large beach/bath towel. A relative sent her an invitation for a large birthday feast and could I embroider the design on the invitation. And could I please add 13 names of her and of her relatives who had been invited too. Well I digitised it and make a test on a handtowel. And today added all the requested names.

Here is a picture of the design.

Hi Martene--haven't seen you here in a while or I've missed you. Your digitizing is lovely. You had quite the order from your neighbor and hope she loves what you've come up with. Great digitizing skills.

I have not embroidered much the last year or so. Did sew and knit a lot.
This was quite a job. Including the names digitising, repositioning the hoop and embroidering took me 12 hrs.

A unique piece of work and your neighbour must be happy if she is asking for so many names to be added

It will be a gift from all the people named on the towel for a man who 'has everything'.

Lovely design and especially liked the frame around the numbers.

I used golden metallic thread for the frame, that gives it a nice sparkle
