Coptic Stitched Notebook

Last night was the penultimate class of my City & Guilds Creative Sketchbook class and we completed the stitching on a small notebook we'd made. The cover is a piece of paper washed with ink and then brushed over with bleach and the picture shows the stitching in of the signatures which was a bit tricky at first but ok once we got the hang of it and once you could see the pattern emerging. Today I added a little felted piece to the cover with a few beads stitched in. I love the colours.

Beautiful Lynne and the bleack marks are so effective
