I too have a complete set and was very disappointed when
they were discontinued. They were a bit tricky to get the
hang of at first, but they worked up beautifully.
I still display a Sudbury box with a design stitched in
the flower thread. I've also done a matching pillowtop,
but never got around to actually making it into a pillow.
One day....

need to buy much in the way of materials for a decade or two

I know the feeling. I will need to be immortal to finish all my projects. M y current project is to do something as subtle as a Thea Gouveneur using fl ower thread, but that's 180 colours v 465. But if I add in all the 130 Dani sh flower threads I am getting nearer. The conversion charts are crude but demonstrate that the subtlety can be achieved. I'd like to get hold of some Anchor Nordin but they seem even harder to obtain.
