In stitches

Two more May birthday cards done today.  The first was a fishing related one and I didn't take a photo before I stuck and stamped the envelope.  The other was a very detailed design, 41000 stitches (not sure why, when the pattern said 39000), it required two and a quarter hours of stitching time, plus the time to do the thread changes, about 3 hours in all. 

Fortunately the recipient doesn't read my blog, so I can post a pic here.

I had to wait until a new thread set (120 colours in Simthread) arrived from the lovely Doris Darby at http://www.embroideredjust4u.co.uk/  They reached her on Wednesday, were dispatched on Thursday, and arrived on Saturday
I can't believe I'm interested in thread! 

When did that happen?
