I wanted to learn coptic stitching. Once I try something I'm pretty good with just knowing I know how now and I can re create them if I need to for other projects. It's always this "oh, this is just another thing" epiphany that the newest trend isn't the end all to everything art. I found the coptic stitched piece in my closet and it was begging for a cover so I cut up some thick cardboard with a utility knife and the painting ensued. This is the cover I ended up with. No particular design or idea was decided up front. I like to create as I go and add what feels right. I added the coptic signatures to the new cover with black strings tied at each stitch line. Not the easiest thing to do. I kind of like the black ribbons hanging here and there which add interest. I didn't at first but I've used the old leave it and come back technique with this one and so glad I did.
