No, this is not a needle and thread installation but the sad, sad case of ineptitude. I decided to sew my Starry Starry Night book together using eight sewing stations, in a single page coptic binding. With a mere page and the cover to go it was apparent that I was not going to have enough thread in my eight needles, and would have to start again.
Don't know if you have had to do this, cut out all the stitching you have so carefully done, but it is heartbreaking especially when you are feeling a little time poor! I thought I had heard a little voice in the back of my head saying that you need to make SURE you had enough thread to complete the binding on each needle as with this form of coptic there is no joining option. I just didn't pay it enough attention - or the little voice was not there until half way through and I just kept hoping, and hoping.
Anyway, it is done now. All finished and ready to meet with Fiona and her book tomorrow.
