    Thank you very much Guys. Doc: Madeira for the design threads, and on this occasion for the wrapping thread while sorting out my thread spools I came across a spool of Japanese thread called 'Speed thread' its size C ncp. I usually use Gudebrod size D plain, but I have just recently received from Silvia some Bullards 'black coal' in size D - looks as good as gudebrod if not better!

    Fantastic work Steve!
    Keeping those long thread runs straight and tight requires a bunch of skill and you've got it to spare!
